That ended up being one of my favorite identities in the league. In all honestly, the only reason that I don't plan on using it for an early team is that I really liked the KC logo, which I couldn't use if I put them in another city.

Crows kinda fits in with Cleveland or Cincinnati

In the old thread, Cleveland and Cincy had two of the oldest teams in the Ghosts and the Guardians, likely not a chance that they'll be renamed.

Re: The National Association of Professional Football Clubs

Darknes is exactly right. In fact, one of those teams is already in the league, though not yet in those cities or under those names.

Crows is alliterative, but I like the nicknames that I have for those two cities more. Based on how the league grew last time, Denver, Buffalo, or Portland would have been likely to pick off the Crows nickname - I liked the names that I had for them, but not the identities (Colorado's white jersey was probably my favorite, but their logo wasn't original enough, and I never landed on a logo that I didn't hate for the other two).

Why Ghosts for CLE? Cleveland isn’t haunted. Maybe the Erie Lakers could move their and keep their name sometime in the 30s-50s

Re: The National Association of Professional Football Clubs

I actually wanted to use the name because of the movie Lean on Me. The school's team is the Ghosts and the colors are purple and orange. I liked that combo and wanted to use it. When I was deciding where to put them, my brain decided to play a word association game. Cleveland is on Lake Erie. Erie = eerie = spooky = ghost. I never did put them in orange, though.

EDIT: I guess their colors are navy and orange, but it looked purple in the movie! lol

Wow. Would have never guessed that would be the team backstory
