Big surprise.

Okay now, pardon my ignorance, but could somebody explain to me exactly what the following teams are, and where they play?

The Omaha Beef.

The Omaha Chiefs.


Thanks!

I see that there will be the obligatory naming competition starting tomorrow. Personally I'm hoping for the newly available "Fighting Sioux".

Omaha Fighting Sioux has nice ring to it. Don't you think?

Omaha Potholes or Omaha Packers would be good names

Packers...no. I can't stand green bay football and I'd hate that. Omaha Bears?

Omaha Potholes?

I still like Spider Monkeys though.

I do think its interesting that they chose completely generic names. Granted, the NFL pretty much does that as well, but I would have thought something relating to the midwest or Omaha might be in order. I have to suspect the generic naming allows them to more easily move the team down the line.

But truthfully, I'm straining to think of any name that would be unique to Omaha, Nebraska, or the Midwest that would sound lame.

What about the "Omaha Commanders," in reference to SAC.

Although I think it's great for the city and excited to go to my first game I'm really not liking any of those names so far but I really don't know what a good one would be.

I'm so happy to hear we're getting a pro (minor) football league!

Omaha Express

Although I also got a kick out of the suggestion heard on another forum... 'Nebraska Values'

When will they play their games? The season is Sept to Nov. You have College on sat and NFL on Sundays, who are you going to get to support them if they conflict with your favorite teams.
