Re: History of the National Football Association- 1967 Expansion + Merger

Name: Anders Lindberg
Age: 47
Bio: Owner of "Lindies" a gas station company serving the upper Midwest, based out of St. Paul, Minnesota.
Favorite Team: Minnesota Blue Ox

Expansion Choices:
1. Pittsburgh - Vulcans: Pays homage to the cities iron working history while being something new and different
2. Dallas - Bats: Something other than western or oil for Dallas. Bats are underused in sports IMO and the Mexican free-tailed bat is commonly found in the Dallas-Fort Worth area
3. Cincinnati - Sabres: I think this one just sounds cool, plus the seal of the city of Cincinnati has a sword on it so there's kinda a base for it

Re: History of the National Football Association- 1967 Expansion + Merger

Name: Johnny Armando
Age: 50
Bio: CEO of a Chicago based newpaper
Favorite Team: for now Cleveland Rangers

Expansion Choices:
Cincinnati Centaurs (Burnt Orange/Navy) :While far more known as being in Greek mythology, Centaurs actually do get featured in Roman mythology too, making it fitting enough for a city named after a Roman dictator.   Also, alliteration bonus.  Choose Burnt Orange to separate from the Tigers' brighter use of orange.  Navy goes well with Burnt Orange, so I thought I'd suggest that for the 2nd color.

Buffalo Royals, (Purple/Gold): A play on one of Buffalo's city names, The Queen City.  Plus, it'd give us an excuse to have a purple team, which would be different for this league.

St. Louis Catfish, (Navy/Red): I like George Bryzzo's idea here, so I'll 2nd it.  It'd be different from the usual Golden Arch or Explorer theme, which were the only other ideas I had.  Navy and red for the color scheme as that seems appropriate for this city.

Expansion Choices
1 - Pittsburgh - Smiths or Blacksmiths

The Apollos name reminds me of the AAF.

 Hey would you like to edit your submission, we already have the Cleveland Rangers and Milwaukee Barbarians in the league so I can’t really chose those names again.

Age: 54
Bio: Owns a chain of car dealerships across eastern Wisconsin, stretching from Milwaukee north to the Michigan border.
Favorite Team: Milwaukee Barbarians

Expansion Vote:
1) Dallas - Good market? Check. Good ownership? Check. So lets do this. Dallas starts a push west and south. I want to recommend something with the red flying horse, and pegasus doesn't pluralize well, so I'd nominate the Dallas Flying Horses, using a Texas flag inspired red/white/blue color scheme.
2) Cincinnati - Helps move the league to the southeast if they want to continue to expand there, while still being near enough to other teams to build and grow rivalries. Named after a Roman, I nominate the Cincinnati Centurions, after the Roman officer who commanded a century of legionaries.
3) St. Louis - With Maxwell's plan to build a large stadium that will also host a college bowl, this seems to be a slam dunk. I'm sure a suitable temporary home can be arranged (whether sharing with the St. Louis Olympians or potentially spending a season sharing with the University of Missouri). I would nominate the name St. Louis Kings, in reference to Budweiser being the king of beers, and St. Louis being named after King Louis IX of France.
