Re: Wouldn't have been my 1st choice...

No name was going to feel perfect .. I think it will be fine in time.

My team is the Red Sox .. can you imagine if a team chose a name like that today?

Re: Re: Wouldn't have been my 1st choic

Their other option was Spiders. Historical, but probably wouldn't sell as well.

The G with the wings logo is not a good look IMHO

Re: Re: Wouldn't have been my 1st choic

since they have the g logo why not call them the groots ? But on a serious note this is pathetic , change the logo fine , but the indians were named to honor an indian. if you continue to bow to cancel culture they will only demand more. I wish they would keep politics out of sports , cant enjoy anything anymore without the bs

Groots could definitely be a nickname that fans use, haha

I will for sure not miss Cleveland vs Los Angeles next year...

I can't wait for the Guardian Angels matchup, a match made in heaven...

funny how some Marketing responsible are just not too great at what they do best...


I understand it's about an historical building... bu that name is already taken...

An already well branded name....

That name is a complete fail !

Having been born and raised a Cleveland fan... I am MEH about the Guardians name. I don't hate it, but don't love it. However, the logos are WEAK! My 10 year old could draw up a better logo than that G with the baseball. A good logo goes a long way in getting people to buy in.

Also, there is no actual proof that the Indians were named after Louis Sockalexis, who ironically played for the Cleveland Spiders in the late 1890s.
