With Hull City AFC changing their name to Hull City Tigers and the reported possibility of Cardiff City changing their name to Cardiff Dragons, the style in which clubs in the English Premier League are named seems to be becoming Americanized, like teams in the NFL, NBA, NHL and PGA (we have it on good authority that Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy are to change their names to Woods Tigers and McIlroy Roars).
Here at Bleacher Report, we’re always first in line to embrace change. Goal-line technology? We’re all for it! World Cup in the winter? We’re there! A striker wants No. 3 as his squad number? Don’t push it.
So, to show we’re on the forefront of change, we’ve decided to save every English Premier League club’s marketing guys, PR specialists and demented chairmen a job by giving each side a new NFL-style team name, whether they want it or not.
We'll be incorporating an animal, vegetable, mineral, person or just any old thing at all that best sums each team up.
