After the self imposed deadline of midnight Wednesday/Thursday, we're deadlocked at 15/15.

How can we break the tie between these two names? Should we have a slogan contest, to go along with the name, and the slogan for the name that gets the most vote wins?

My football has a first name....

It's E - A -G - L - E - S

My football has a second name.....

It's T - A - L - K - S

Oh, I love to post some every day

And if you ask me why I'll say.

Eagles' Talk just has a way

of giving me my fix each day.

Eagles talk is simply boring. Wingheads insinuate some self-parity, that we don't take ourselves that seriously. Personally, even wingheads don't seem to go far enough to capture the element I think should be representative of our new forum... I'd have called this place something like HelmetlessEagles... or HatchingIgglets, LactoseIntolerantCanaries, DrunkenPluckedChickens... or find a way to put breasts in their somewhere.

It is interesting to note how the 2 names that each got 15 votes represent the two extremes in naming. Eaglestalk is nice and simple, and it is easy to figure out what the site's mission is. Wingheads does not tell anyone intuitively what the mission of the board is, and doesn't even have the teams name.

Eagle Phans has the team's name in it and still pulls a cutesy in the latter half like the other board did with Iggles.

BirdsofPreyPhans would still give you some curiosity as to what the site is about. I think Wingheads just obscure's the mission of the board too much. Some might think we like chicken wings. That would have been my guest, but I'm officially an old fart now.

ScreamingEagles would at least be a good name for our flame board, and might be a name to consider for the whole board since we do tend to screm at games. (i.e. BOOOOO!!!!) tongue.gif

I'd be willing to compromise on anything that makes it more obvious that we are an Eagles board. But wingheads sounds more like a restraunt than a football message board IMHO.

Sandor
I'll offer a compromise.

eaglestalk for the URL and heading (the blue bar at the top of your computer screen when you're online)
Main screen says wingheads (with appropriate graphics).

DOBBER!!!!!

(hehe screaming eagles)

you dont need the team name in it. concretefield, 700level, nestofdeath are all eagles boards. let's be original here :-)

we have as much OT stuff here as eagles talk...so eaglestalk.com might be a little misleading :-)
wizardsandwars
I agree with wingspan here.

If I heard 'ConcreteBoard' , 'BleedingGreen', or '700level' for the first time, and I wasn't a devout Eagles fan, I wouldn't have any idea what they were about.

WingHeads has a duel meaning, the first of course is in the mold of 'AndyHeads' in that we are fans of the Football Winged Ones. The second a little more litteral, representing how the Eagles football team wears 'Wings' on their helmet, or 'Heads'.

I think we need something really original here, and catchy.

Eyrie
Only way I can see to resolve the issue would be to check on who hasn't voted, then email them to reply to a specific topic for their votes.

Do we have until Friday midnight for this to work?
carolina igg
I think Sandor offered a good compromise, but I think Wingheads is more catchy. How about Wingheads.com -- This is OUR house? I know it's kinda Raybobish, butI think it fits.
wizardsandwars
How about we just sell the naming rights to the highest bidder, and use the proceeds to hire strippers at our First Anual Tailgate?
carolina igg
Hmmmmm laugh.gif
carolina igg
Ok, I know the voting has been closed to other suggestions, but this just popped into my head. "Igglets"?

i have a relative that works for rita's water ice (or italian ice, depending on where you live)...you will all soon be posting on "Wingspan's Gelati Board" laugh.gif

I LOVE that stuff! Can't get a decent one in these parts though. Can't get a good soft pretzel either. dry.gif

there's actually a Rita's in south carolina (i have no idea where you are i am assuming here)...somewhere in Hilton Head, i was there last summer and ran into it to my surprise.
philfan
Mind if I introduce a 3rd choice....How about Birdbrains.com?

We could have a cool eagle mascot that looks like a cross between a bald eagle and Brainiac (The Hulk's arch-enemy, they both are green afterall!)
wizardsandwars
Sorry, philfan, that domain is already taken. In fact, most of the good ones are.

Thanks, but I'm on the NC/VA border. Long run for a tasty treat. I'll keep it in mind if I get down that way! cool.gif

"Where Iggles dare" would be to corny, huh? unsure.gif

How about EaglesHeads?

The Falcons and Vikings also have wings on their heads.

Eagleheads is already taken, but EaglesHeads does not appear to be.

Ding Ding Ding...

We have a winner.

This is a fine idea, and a great example of the art of compromise.

I'm fully with this suggestion...

Yo moose, yes, the falcon is a wing, but i guarantee if you ask 50 people outside of atlanta what team has wings on its helmet, 49 would say the eagles. we are associated with that much more than the falcons. secondly, the viking is a horn my friend, not a wing...think about it... why would a viking have a wing?

I thought the Oscar Meyer jingle must have rekindled a long lost love for weiners in our old pal run for a second there.....

I'm going to endorse the Sandor compromise.

How about a Barry Sadler ripoff. Put green wings....on my son's head. Make him one....of America's best.

No, but I went to a minor league baseball game last night and ate 2 foot long dogs washed down by 2 Yeunglings - good stuff!
