Pretty interesting stuff. Gotta love how fans come up with half the stuff and owners come up with the rest. Also, if you notice, the franchise that had fans pick the name have a bigger fan base and sense of loyalty rather than when the team owners/management just cram the team's identity down everybody's throat.
