Phoenix, Outlaws, and Firebirds are the final remaining three teams.
If you were to rename the Cardinals, which would you choose?
Voting will be open until Wednesday at 5pm.
Let the final round begin!
I thought it might be nice to remind those that missed Round One where the final three team names came from.
The Arizona Outlaws were a team that played in the brief United States Football League in 1985.
The Phoenix Firebirds were a minor league baseball team that existed first as the Giants, but were the Firebirds from 1986-1997, after which they relocated to Tucson and became the Sidewinders.
The Phoenix idea was just a fun play on words that can be attributed to various people, but the closest to a team name I can think of is the name of group attempting to establish an MLS team in Arizona called Phoenix Rising. (Side note: When I went to include the link to their website, it is giving me an error stating the website has been suspended hopefully they haven't had their dreams crushed.)
RIP, Round 1: Heatwave, Firestorm, Sidewinders, Dirt Devils, Monsoon, Sand Storm, Desert Storm, Desperados, Stampede, Diablos, Calvary, Wolf Pack, Sandsharks, Sting, Coyotes
RIP, Round 2: Scorpions, Gunslingers, Inferno, Vipers, Desert Demons
