Orcas or Kraken, however we could totes take the junior team Thunderbirds and keep the bird love going!
Orcas would be a bit odd considering the logo of the team right across the border features an Orca.
I like Kraken. Treat it like Florida. It’s not the Krakens. It’s the Seattle Kraken
Well thanks to a leak, we’ve learned that the Seattle XFL football team will likely be called the Seattle Steelheads, so I hate to break it to you, but that name is taken.
Seattle Cougars Seattle Eagles Seattle Emeralds Seattle Evergreens Seattle Firebirds Seattle Kraken Seattle Rainiers Seattle Renegades Seattle Sea Lions Seattle Seals Seattle Sockeyes Seattle Totems Seattle Whales
Kraken or Emeralds
I’m down for Kraken or Emeralds. I also like Firebirds and Rainiers.
x/post with Formula 1!
Clearly someone didn’t read the posts from 10 days ago.
Rather than appropriate, it looks like they are reaching out to Coast Salish artists to actually contribute. Nothing is finalized, but we’ll see how it goes.
Because that’s how we do. Similar things were done for the Seahawks and Thunderbirds.
Yes, except people on the Internet are saying the Seahawks was based on art from way up in Alaska, where as the Coast Salish were actually in the Seattle area.
The NFL talks about how many consider us to be Alaska anyways. So it works out.
From what I’ve seen in various places, Seattle seems to be the “home sports town” for much of Alaska anyways.
Edit: I also like to point out that having a Native-inspired mascot/logo may tread the line of appropriation vs. appreciation. Props to the team’s management for being on the appreciation side (IMHO) by asking Native artists to design the mascot/logo.
