Cleveland Roller Derby Team About To Make Some Bank After The Guardians Stole Their Name

It doesn't look like the freshly named Cleveland Guardians checked to see if the name was taken first before announcing their new name last week. Apparently there's a roller derby team with the SAME NAME in the SAME CITY. Now they could make some bank...

The "Mistake By the Lake" is still available.

not a problem unless the public is likely to be confused about the two. UGA and Miss State are both Bulldogs. LSU and Auburn are both Tigers. Nobody in the consuming public is confused.

It's a major problem. The roller derby team copywrote "Cleveland Guardians", not just guardians. The Indians will either find a new bane or buy it from the roller derby team.

How do we know that the Indians didn't check with them first and buy the name, website and all of that? The roller derby team didn't comment. Maybe they agreed to let the Indians/Guardians handle any media interactions.

Guardians is the most generic Madden Create-A-Team bull shite.

Marketing 101. One of the first things you do is check when designing a new logo / team name, is check for copyrights and usage rights. DUMB. Should have been the Cleveland Rockers anyway.

I thought Guardian was some sort of birth control device.

What's the point in Rovell pointing out the team has two women?

That is beyond hilarious. No one has google inside the Cleveland organization?

This name really is awful. Probably thought no other team would possibly choose a name that bad.

The Roller Derby team should change their name to the Cleveland Indians.

Uh oh. In the rush to get woke, they forgot to do ANY type of research.
