I have no problem with most of the names, but the Austin Bats? That would never fly(no pun intended), but then again there's the New Orleans Pelicans.
The Pelican is the state bird of Louisiana .. So it actually makes a lot of sense.

The New Orleans Pelicans have a vicious rivalry with the Alabama Alka-Seltzers...The Seltzers get all up in the Pelicans throats and cause them to explode in utter defeat.

It's also the name of New Orleans' current NBA franchise. No bueno.

Eh, it is what it is. For some reason, we all think that team names have to be intimidating and manly these days. But what is manly or intimidating about the following team names:

Yankees
Red Sox
White Sox
Saints
Packers
Dolphins

I mean I wouldn't want the Mavericks to make a switch over to the Hummingbirds but I guess if it's relevant to the State and wins on the field/court, it doesn't really matter.

Iím interested to see what the stadiums look like and if there will be a background native to that area.

Being from Texas, I have to agree. I think Houston and San Antonio both shouldíve been excluded and they could have left it with Austin. With that said, you donít have a problem with them putting in California and Florida cities that both already have three teams each?

And finally, I must be overly-Irish. Because I got a little bit giddy when I saw that I could not only move a team to Dublin, Ireland (A gorgeous city with amazing sports fans) but also be able to call them the Shamrocks and have an official Logo with Nike Uniforms.
honestly i didnt even realize that they were putting more teams in those states. i saw the post about moving the oilers back to houston and focused mainly on that. i do wish that CA and FL were excluded from where you can move teams. only thing im partial about is LA was excluded just for the fact that it looks almost guaranteed to get the next NFL team.

I do know that Dolphins partake in s3xual gang bangs and commit acts of rape; that is rather scary if you ask me.

Oh I agree, Los Angeles definitely had to be included. I don't think they should have included Orlando when one of the most rumored teams to leave over the last few years (Until New Ownership) is from the same State (Jaguars). Personally, I think they should have included Albuquerque (NM) and Mobile (AL).

Good point. The Dolphin has a lot more street cred than I give it credit for.

for some teams that works Rams, Raiders others who need a complete rebranding not so much.

For me it's not about an intimidating name its about one that sounds good/authentic to my ears. All the names on MrSerendipity's list pass the ear test way over half of EA's list fails it miserably and with the commentary we'll hear those terrible names over and over again.

but again no hate on the mode it will be useful for getting former teams back, but that seems about it no creativity and I guess the whole Nike uniform thing was made up so fingers crossed that at least the classic uniforms are done right.

Re: Full List of All 17 Cities You Can Move to in Madden NFL 25

Unfortunately I do think the decent names are limited to half of the names provided. Let me list off the names from each city that I think work (because I'm bored):
Austin Desperados
Brooklyn Beats
Brooklyn Dodgers
Chicago Blues
Chicago Tigers
Columbus Aviaters
Dublin Shamrocks
Houston Gunners
Houston Oilers
London Black Knights
London Monarchs
Los Angeles Aftershock
Los Angeles Dreams
Memphis Steamers
Mexico City Diablos
Oklahoma City Bisons
Oklahoma City Night Hawks
Orlando Sentinels
Portland Lumberjacks
Portland Snowhawks
Sacramento Redwoods
Salt Lake City Pioneers
San Antonio Express
San Antonio Marshalls
Toronto Thunderbirds
So that's twenty-five names out of the fifty provided. And you could actually take away from that if you consider the fact that the Oilers, Monarchs, Dodgers and Desperados were already in use by another Professional team. And I will say that many of the names (if not most) seem like they'd fit an Arena Football Team (Desperados was an Arena Team) more than they would an NFL team.

But even with all of that said, I do think they've done a good job with the mode from what I've seen so far. And I love the fact that Nike has already made Uniforms for all of the teams. I definitely wouldn't mind rolling with some of the names they provided.

Nike did work with them on the uniforms for the relocated teams.
