Relocation Team Names = WTF

The team names you can choose from are ridiculous! What was EA thinking? River hogs, Aftershock, Caps, Dreams? These names are terrible... what happened to Wildcats, Wolverines, Indians, or anything else normal?

I am guessing they did not want to run into conflicts with NCAA and popular school team names so all of those are out, which is why we have what we have. I also wouldn't be surprised if there was a DLC in the works that allowed us to add more cities / teams / colors, etc.

They could at least give us the obvious: OKC Lightning or OKC Twisters

Re: Relocation Team Names = WTF

I dunno. Lots of real team names are stupid if you think about it too long.

What's a seahawk? What's a bill? Are there jaguars in Jacksonville? Is there jazz in Utah? The nuggets, really? The wizards? The flyers? The ducks? The ducks who are mighty? The white socks? The red socks? The twins?

Some teams are named for something antiquated or completely unrelated to the city just because they thought it would look cool on the logo or they thought it had a nice ring to it.

Some teams are named on the basis of somebody saying, "Okay, what things do people associate with this city/state? Let's just make a list of those things and randomly name the team after one of them."

Some teams are just named on the basis of having a team name that begins with the same letter as the city name.

The thought process that led to the team names used in Madden is pretty much on par with the thought process that led to all real teams' names. I wouldn't get too hung up on it.

Anybody know if the fans reaction to team name, jersey, etc are all the same. For example if I am Chargers and move to LA will fans react the same as Dolphins moving.

The twins are not stupid. Twin cities, Twins. Get it?

Re: Relocation Team Names = WTF

My opinion-- They added in the ability to relocate and upgrade stadium and a bunch that hasnt been there and was asked for. I understand the teams names arent to everyones liking (including my own on most of them) but hey... they at least have added it in. I'm happy.
