    Just like the stadium.

    It's all so perfectly Wichita though. We can't have nice things.
    There are only three sports: bullfighting, motor racing, and mountaineering; all the rest are merely games.

    • @WichitaBaseball disappeared. Wonder if they got hit with a bunch of backlash on the turrible name, or just killing it off since they actually have a name now.

        lol Eldridge has a poll up and 80% don’t like it. It’s probably past the point of no return at this point but if they can reverse it, they should do it. The whole build up to this was ridiculous and now this is ridiculous. They might wanna keep their account deleted for a while because the backlash is pretty savage right now.

        • The Wranglers was a great name considering it tied into Wichita's root as a cowtown.

          What would be some alternatives on the cowtown them?.

          Buckaroos
          Chaps (pronounced Shaps)
          Bullbangers
          Bullbusters
          Branding Irons

          If the want to go with a weather theme:

          Wind Blasters
          Twisters
          Thunderclouds

          And of course you could go with he aviation theme.

          The need to put out 5 names plus a none of the above option and let the fans vote. If none of the above wins put out 5 more.

          Wind Surge? SHOCKvalue is right. We would soon be known as the Wichita Farts. Who in the hell is responsible for this?

          • Isn’t that a term associated with tidal waves, something we have so much of here?

            • Totally expected from this crapshow. Are we part of some sort of reality show where we'll be "catfished" or some other stupid thing?

              • If are going with the fart them than do it right. The Wichita Wind Breakers.

                    • My guess, they become the know as just the Surge.

                      Logo, Hats, and Jerseys all look class though. Todd does great work.

                            I could live with the Surge. I really hope they reduce it to that for 2nd season.

                                Reminds me of when they announced the "Thunder" name for OKC.

                                I wasn't too wowed by it, but now it would be hard to imagine them as anything else.
