    @Sockonfl: Thanks for the nominations.
    I’m only going to provide my name because my favorites are all in the leagues I play in and hopefully a lot of those folks post here.

    The favorite one I used was Rabid Lemurs.
    I’ve used it in both sports, but it originated in Fantasy Baseball.

    Favorite fantasy football team name I’ve seen:
    Amish Rake Fighters

    Favorite fantasy baseball team name I’ve seen:
    Honey Nut Ichiros

    My favorite team name:
    I usually used Paige’s PicklePackers after my daughter and because it just has a ring to it when you say it out loud, but I’m nominating my other fantasy alter ego name: the Schizophrenic Smurfs

  6. Rob

    I liked the one I saw last year, Roid Rage

  7. Christian

    Ego Bruisers because no one likes to lose to a girl (wife’s team name)

  8. Jay-Mo

    This one is tough for me as I usually go the uncreative route and pick some combinaton of player names from the teams I root for … i.e. Carter Mosebys, Cito Alomars, Duper de Henne and Csonka Warfields.

    The one I’d throw out there is Canseco’s Pool Party for a baseball team I had a few years back when Canseco’s book came out detaling his steroid evenings with Clemens and his wife by the pool.

    A new one I’d thought of earlier today – Big Ben’s Wing Men – whatta think? Feel free to use it, especially in leagues with diehard Steelers fans!

    The best one I ever saw was a football team in a Sporting News League I was in four or five years ago … Oops, My Dick Jauron Out My Pants

    Sandyhook Spidermonkeys was a team a friend named before Talladega Nights and the dinner scene.

    Although I love The League, Shanahanigens might be one of the greatest team names ever. You should probably Trademark that. … And you’ll have to excuse me for overusing it in every Redskins article I write this year.
