    That was pretty clever. But having to explain it would get old.

    They said they'd be putting up the best and letting us all vote on 'em, but I'm not sure when that'll be... any idea?
    I would prefer a name that wasn't based on current personnel names so it could last a few years.
    If Edwards is gone next year and we bring in Kampan, does it become Shock and AWWK?
    If Kennedy replaces Pat Williams does it become Shock and AKWE?

    Not sure which name I would go with yet, a lot of good ideas, but nothing up to the purple people eater standards.
    When someone leaves the name would have to change, as it did with the PPE's.
    If that's the rule, then I think it will be a short lived name.
    I guess if we win the SB this year, then it can live on forever.
    In past times, the PPE's and Steel Curtain were a decade long moniker.
    No way we get that with our current personnel.
    2 year's max.

    If the d-line stays dominant, I don't know why it couldn't be used with different personnel.
    I suppose it could but probably it wouldn't.
    Just like the name "Purple People Eaters" died when those cats broke up, this one would die as well.

    I'd prefer a name that is kinda like a noun.
    That way the announcer can say "And so and so gets stuffed by the Wall of America"
    It just sounds weird saying "Rogers gets swarmed by Shock and Awwe"

    I ended up sending in Skol Patrol. I still like Four Norsemen better, though.

    Re: Name the D-Line

    I sent in a bunch of them, obviously many had the same ideas as I sent in the Four Norsemen as well as The Wall of America.
    Some others I suggested (was surprised one or two didn't get mentioned, considering some that did):

    The Norse Force
    Sack and Pillagers
    The Purple Pillagers
    Rope-a-Dopers (Allen's calf roping and the Williams Wall's drug testing issues)
    The Nordic Nightmares
    SKOL VIKINGS!

    Re: Name the D-Line

    I like a bunch of them.

    I really like Maul of America or Wall of America.

    I also like The Four Norseman (the one I voted for on the site).

    Purple Reign is going to be the name of the Vikings NFL DVD when they win the Super Bowl, so it should not really be the lines name.

    I thought that they had one like "Nordic Thunder", I also like the Purple Tsunami (just made it up).

    The Great Wall of St. Paul

    or

    The Great Wall in St. Paul

    or

    The Purple Nerples

    The only way you are going to make this game more appealing to the public than it was before is if there are on field orgies at halftime and the domes become massive opium dens."

    Re: Name the D-Line

    The Four Norseman got my vote

    But the rope-a-dopers really? Should be Minnesota Norths StarCaps, a little tribute to the lost team and the Williams
    ;D
