Readers Respond: What is the Worst Football Team Name You Have Ever seen?

Responses: 44


From the article: NFL's Lame Names
As an immature teenager, I always got a kick out of a couple of the monikers of teams my hometown faced. For instance, there were the Fisher (IL) Bunnies.


There is actually a high school football team in Illinois that calls themselves the Bunnies.

Now that I've grown into an immature adult, it still brings a grin to my face to think about big, burly, sweaty football players charging onto the gridiron with the nickname "Bunnies" tattooed across their chests.

Then there are the Hoopeston Cornjerkers, a name that paints a ridiculously funny image, although there is some historical significance to it.


The Rhode Island School of Design has a hockey team called the RISD Nads. When they're on the ice the crowd chants Go NADS! Go NADS!
