    The Cardinals are the oldest professional team in the NFL. Because of that fact alone they'll never change their name.

    Re: Does this logo look mean?

    Yea, since they are in ARI now and probably will be for some time, and want a "new image" why didn't they just re-name the team? Just for curiousity, I looked up birds in Arizona and there is only one type of cardinal found in Arizona, the Northern Cardinal. There are many, many other species that are found in Arizona. The state bird is the Cactus Wren. Probably not a great team name, but there are others that might work: Sandpipers, Thrashers, Owls, Warblers, even Hummingbirds. They could call themselves the Arizona Hummers.

    Regardless, all better choices than that stupid loser Cardinal they have.

    They were originally named for the color of their jerseys back in the Chicago days, so there really is no reason why they have to have a bird logo. In fact, they could go the Stanford route, drop the "s" and pick a mascot that has little to do with the bird or the color. If Stanford has the tree, how about Arizona taking a cactus?

    That was the Phoenix WHA teams name (think Robbie Ftorek) Wranglers in the USFL.

    The Cardinals predated the Bears in Chicago as the popular team and used to play in Wrigley Field, with one of the NFL's biggest stars Ernie Nevers (Bears had Red Grange though) if it wasn't for George Halas we might be talking about the Arizona Bears.

    If they really want a desert animal with an attitude, they should rename themselves the Phoenix Javelinas.

    A mutant pig with a nasty disposition.

    No, just an obscure and off target reference to the "Moops" in the Seinfeld bubble boy episode.

    It was a long way to go for not much. At least it's Friday.

    You picked the wrong guy to try and pull an obscure Seinfeld reference on, sorry. My bad. I was trying to think of John Travolta in that Boy In the Plastic Bubble movie.... :MandJ:

    BTW, I like the Javelinas idea. Those things are hella-nasty.
