Yeah if they went with a logo that incorporated Wahoo on any level, it'd be almost as disrespectful as before, if not moreso.

I honestly assumed that one was a joke.

Yeah for sure.

I don't even understand the obsession with "gotta use a team name we had in the past" thing. "Spiders" is a crappy baseball team name, IMO of course. They should do something fresh.

Also, Sockalexis played like 80 games for Cleveland, it would be a weird thing for them to name themselves after him.

They could get a few more million from the insurance company that named their stadium and go with the Cleveland Progressives.

Rollers.

Advertised link to Rock and Rollers and a tip of the cap to the Hall of Fame, but every adolescent (age independent) can have a naughty chuckle at the subtle wink to the Cleveland steamroller aka steamers.

This is why my vote remains Spiders, btw.

Cleveland Kielbasa’s.

Rolls off the tongue. Nod to Cleveland’s large Polish population. The mascot will just be a log of meat.

They should consider honoring their history of innovation in the Railroad industry... The Engines, The Cleveland Engines.

They could try to steal the name from the former St. Louis indoor soccer team, the Cleveland Steamers.
