Here are my personal rankings:

Spiders
Gray Wolves
Wild Things
Guardians
Coyotes
Naps

I like the historical part of the Spiders and Naps.
I like the bridge tie-in of the Guardians
I like the dawg part of Coyotes and Wolves, and the logo potential (Wahoo is the only good logo in CLE, until recently)
I like the movie association with Wild Things


At this moment, the rest are off my board.

Frankly, I like Gray Wolves the best. I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere though lol.

I agree. The official civil rights organization is The National Congress of American Indians, WITH an Indian head logo.

I still don’t see why Indians with a new logo isn’t on the table, or at least Tribe.

Just realized, we have no franchises with logos in this damn city.

Indians are now a “C”
Browns are a helmet
Cavs are a ball in a basket

So, my bottom line desire, is to at least have a logo for Pete’s sake. Even Penn State has a logo. If a spider is the best we can do, then ok I suppose.

A lot of completely awful names. This is going to be a disaster.

If the Dolans were smart and wanted to make a ton of money, they would make the easy choice and go with the Buckeyes.

Here's a late message to Billionaires who own these American Indian related named teams.

Naps or Fellers. I would like all Cleveland teams to be named after greats. It would be a cool local thing. After that I wouldn’t mind seeing them take a page out of Washington’s playbook and just be the Cleveland 9.
