POLL: If the Saints were forced to change their name, what name would you want?

The “New Orleans Referees” by chance?

The Washington football franchise has come under fire of late for numerous concerns, the least of which is now the future name of the team. There have been a lot of suggested names - Warriors, Capitals, Red Tails, Nationals - but the ultimate decision is still up in the air. But this got me thinking: If the New Orleans Saints were to change their name and drop the “Saints” moniker, what would you want it to be?

I asked some of the CSC staff this question, and here are some of the names we came up:

Kade Kistner - Baby Cakes

Ross Jackson - Voodoo

Brenden Ertle - Jazz

Hayden Reel - Pelicans

Other names we discuss in our conversation were Brass (shout out to the old ECHL hockey team), Crawfish, Alligators, and Beignets.

Personally, if forced to drop the “Saints,” I would love if the Voodoo name were somehow available from the old Louisiana arena football team. But what says you, Who Dat Nation? If the Saints were forced to no longer be the Saints, what name would you want for them? Vote in the poll. Explain in the comments. Send me presents.
