They don’t even represent all of California in the AL. They don’t even represent their entire metropolitan area.

In 2002, the Rams received 11 percent of the vote, the same year they lost in the Super Bowl to the New England Patriots.The Rams tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Giants.The Dallas Cowboys and the Green Bay Packers tied for first in the poll, with both teams receiving 12 percent of the vote.In previous years, the top teams garnered as much as 25 percent of the vote. Last season, for example, the Packers led the way with 17 percent. Admittedly, the Packers may have dropped in the past couple of years – people like a winner. I’d bet the Colts and Bears are near the top this year. Link to post Why not use ‘California Athletics’ instead?

Guest Sports Logo News 950 Posted November 15, 2006 I have heard more than one columnist mention that they could use:Golden State Athletics.And, since the 49ers are possibly moving to Santa Clara:Golden State 49ers.Both teams already use various types of “Gold”, so not much would need to change…other than the 49ers’ “SF” logo.Note: I MIGHT be back. I don’t know; I’m thinking about it.
