Aslo, are the Tulsa Oilers still around? This would explain part of this boring name.

Nice reminds me of the old defunct Cleveland Barons:

The Roughnecks was a good suggestion.

-Scissor-tailed Flycatchers, kind like the Atlanta Thrashers.

EDIT: Gusher points out below that Roughnecks is taken, so Scissor-tailed Flycathers is what I am no forced to go with as a no. 1.

Exactly.

Especially when a team from the South in the NLL uses this name.

Why would you want an Edmonton owned Franchise using a name from a Calgary based team? Yuck!

That's almost as bad as naming your team the same name as an Alberta Junior Hockey Leage team from Fort McMurray....

Not even close!

I didn't say I liked the Barons suggestion/possibility.

I just really dislike the Roughnecks suggestion.

I do not think it is bad at all. Though as I mentioned I liked Oil Barons a little better.

Just to be clear there has been a name the team contest going on with the fans in OKC. I am guessing Barons was one of the popular choices. I like that the fans are having a say in the decision. They pay the freight to fill the seats each game.

I'm just messin' with ya. It would be nice to have a name that is original for our team.

From cracked.com, the worst sports teams out there. Scroll down to the one Butte Pirates. Real team name. http://www.cracked.com/article_15646...eam-names.html No this is not a dirty link. Actual team names. It could be worse I guess.

OKC Lightning would've been awesome.

Then OKC supports both Thunder and Lightning.
