One of the many things humans do in their lives is give eachother names. We name our children. We give ourselves nicknames as well as our friends.
We even give names (sometimes bad) to our enemies. We name our dogs, our cars and our guns.
Do not be foolish to think "any ol' name" will work for your fantasy football team. The name is everything.
Remember going through school and meeting those few people with terrible names? All I could think was "that kid is is going to have it rough". Do not put a similar fate on your fantasy team.
Your league-mates will be staring at your team's name a lot whether its because you are sitting at first place all season from our fantasy football advice or you are the guy offering trades every day. I know I'd be more intimidated to face a team with a good name instead of a team named "football22". Your league-mates will probably share the same sentiment.
This means you need to make the as controversial or hysterical as possible. Your league-mates should remember your team forever. Remember, a good name is one that your league-mates will laugh at and sometimes cause controversy. Try to use a popular player's name for a pun or use irony.
While creating a team name, try to keep sportsmanship in mind. Even though John beat you last year, it won't help your cause this year to name your team "John sucks". Keep it classy folks.
Here are a few names for you if you're having trouble creating a name of your own:
- Burrested Development
- Cassel Greyskull
- Two Vicks One Pup

Most importantly, make sure you have fun! That is what fantasy football is all about!
