SALT LAKE CITY -- The owners of Utah’s soon-to-be Indoor Football League franchise promise fan involvement unlike anything seen in sports history, and the first evidence of that commitment is an online poll asking fans to submit team names and vote for their favorite submissions.
If the current leaders remain at the top of the list, they will test the team’s commitment to fan decision-making.
Imagine the Utah Team McTeamfaces, or the Utah Stormin’ Mormons. As of Wednesday evening, those two names are far ahead of all other submissions.
Professional football player Caesar Rayford says Indoor Football is a looser culture where such names might be fine.
“Sports is entertainment so it's all about having fun,” Rayford said.
