Certainly can't blame anyone . big name college teams in the states are cutting the salaries of coaches also.
    Keeping the name wasn’t going to decrease fans in the stands. Axing the name will and has.

    NFL Draft analysis for Dalyn Dawkins, RB, Colorado State



    By CBS Sports Staff

    Mar 22, 2018 at4:17 am ET•1 min read


































    Draft Prospect Outlook:

    Smaller framed inside running back who carries the ball with surprising power and suddnesses. Limited burst through the hole and long speed.

    College Recap:

    Dawkins isn't a huge player for his position and didn't receive a ton of individual accolades, but he was a workhorse in Colorado State's fun offense. With 3,300 career rushing yards, Dawkins was more productive by the year and an underrated runner in a conference full of quality backs. -- Ben Kercheval

    https://www.couchriderreport.net/201...s-3rd-edition/


    Next, we have Dalyn Dawkins RB out of Colorado State. His 5’9 184-pound frame won’t be running anybody over, but the way he keeps his balance through contact is like that of a bigger player. Dawkins is one of those players labeled as “quicker than fast” meaning he isn’t Usain Bolt running in a straight line, but moving laterally and changing direction is what he excels at. He also has great vision for cut-back lanes and developing blocks. Add the fact that he runs good routes as a receiver with good hands, and you got yourself a serviceable third-down running back. Guys like Dion Lewis and Tarik Cohen have made it easier for a guy like Dawkins to find a niche in the NFL.

    Run the Ball up the gut around the horn it does not matter. We run we win what is so difficult to understand.

    For the first time in prob ever.. for the guys on this list who I haven’t heard of or know little on, I haven’t looked em up, watched tape on em nothing.. no clips posted in here...

    I've heard of Cookus... so with my limited knowledge on NCAA, that must mean he's got something there, lol.

    Pertaining to the thread title, what does this team need?

    1. A name
    2. A stable league to play in

    Even if the EEFC have decided on a new name, there is no reason to reveal it now. Wait until the next season gets organized and make a marketing splash as part of the unveiling for a return to play.

    This.

    Releasing a new name because fans "want one" is the height of entitlement. The club will spend a ton of money on the re-brand; they will want to recoup as much money as possible, and a big splash when there's actual football coming soon.

    Good thing they have an awesome equipment guy that has a ton of experience helping design the look of the jerseys and logo tweaks... Ooops. Never mind.

    Sounds like they've spent a lot of money on the re-brand already.

    Like I said, keep the colors and logo. No need to change that.

    Re: What Does This Team Need? Stay or GO?

    I thought they were going to announce the name in the late summer, but I agree that there's no need to do it now.

    The NFL Washington DC team hasn't picked a new name either, and won't until the off-season.
    Out of my mind; back in five minutes.

    I think they are making their best effort to keep the team relevant through the down period, but yes, only so many things to talk about.

    I'd like to hear from the players! What are you doing this fall? Working? Working out? Coaching? What is it like where you are in terms of covid. For most of these guys its the first fall in 10+ if not 20+ years that they aren't playing. Thats the content I want to hear.

    Yes! Agree... I am not slating Morley he is doing what he can, it’s just the coaches show and he’s not gonna talk about anything to in depth, so the topics are slim.

    Def some good ideas there for content though mate.. for sure

    Absolutely, I’m not slagging off Morley at all.. it’s just tough sledging content wise.. not his fault.

    Sad but true, if the EEFC's goal was to discourage and alienate their fan-base as much as possible, they couldn't possibly have done a better job.

    Glad to hear! I like it when the players stick around the city.
    I see Mike Moore from time to time out with his family in Sherwood Park.
