pa·rade/pəˈrād/
Noun:
A public procession, esp. one celebrating a special day or event and including marching bands and floats.

Verb:
Walk or march in public in a formal procession or in an ostentatious or attention-seeking way.

So you take it as a verb, instead of a noun, and now you have exactly what this defense did all year. They were on a march, or a mission if you will, to publicly show their vulgar or pretentious display(ostentatious) way of stomping a mud hole in you and walking it dry each and every play. That is what this defense did each and every week, for the most part, especially in the playoffs. They were Bulls on Parade....

Some of yall are comparing it to Gay Pride, which I think there is some tendencies that need to be addressed, or some Macy's Thanksgiving Parade (the Noun portion) but if you dig deeper into the meaning, it fits this defense...

It's not Bulls in a Parade, It's Bulls on Parade, or Bull's on march, a mission, a quest, to absolutely dominate you....

at least that's what I got out of it...
Gee thanks...lol. I was wondering what that word meant.

Thing is, until your post I never even thought of the Gay Pride thing. Chalk up yet another reason it's a bad, dorky name no matter how you cut it. Sometimes an idea is just bad.

Listen to this.

Doomsday
Steel Curtain
No Name Defense
Miami Vise

Bulls On Parade

You see what I'm saying?

Let a name come to the team. It'll happen and if it doesn't we are one of many great defenses that didn't have a nickname and I can live with that just fine. Certainly much easier than having the one being shoved down our throats now.

Urban Dictionary

Bulls on parade
1. "Bulls on parade!" - North American metaphor slang, Usually used to notify those around you that police officers/soldiers are present and/or taking action nearby, and that it may be time to defend yourself against them.

"Bulls on Parade" is also a song by the band RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, which features on the Album "Vietnow". The band often uses this song as an opener as it is very exiting and contains powerful anti government rhetoric.

"oh **** watch out man, they're coming... YO! BULLS ON PARADE!"

RATM: "Arms warehouses fill as quick as the cells,
Rally round the family with a pocket full of shells,
...BULLS ON PARADE!"

Bull Queer
1. A man who enjoys having sex with other men, but only without their consent. The more their prey wiggles and attempts escape the happier the bull queer, due to this their prey are sometimes known as 'wigglers'.

Often found in prisions, army bases and public schools.

I bent over to pick up my soap and the next thing i knew i was being arse raped by a bull queer.

However, since you're a guy, don't EVER call me that again or I'll petition to have your man card taken away.

You do have the option of not going.

Default Re: Name Our Defense

My suggestion would be Damage Inc. and if someone can provide a high res shot of the defensive players as a group, or that shot of them in the locker room, I will mock up a nice wall paper With Damage Inc.

This sounds like a real NFL defense name. While I like the Bulls on Parade song it does not really have anything to do with what they do beside having the word bull in the name.

The fact that the term refers to police I think Bulls on Parade could mean any show of force, not just police so it works on that level, but if you have never heard the song (and nationally how many have?) it does sound kind of gay. Think of someone like Richard Simmons saying it "Bulls on Parade" and that will help you visualize what some fans mean when they say it sounds gay.

Damage Inc. is short, and on point. I can imagine seeing signs hanging in home games and away games or hearing the announcers calling them Damage Inc. I mean did you hear Dierdorf say "Bulls on Parade"? Sounded pretty gay coming out of his mouth for sure.

How about we played the Ravens in the "Divisional Round" and lost because we had a rookie QB, but worst, a 5 year PRO (that would be Jacoby Jones) that craps the bed "AND" we paid him 10 mill... Yates "crapped the bed", but then again, why wouldn't he???


Aweaome!!!
