Anyone want to guess the name?

I'll guess right now: Atlantic City Kings.

Atlantic City Monopoly, because they play at Boardwalk hall and boardwalk is the most expensive space in Monopoly.

And Hasboro, the makers of monopoly, puts the 6th team in Pawtucket, Rhode Island; the location of their headquarters.

Bit of a stretch, but okay...

I suggested three...

Bluefish
Marlins
Express

The first two are non-gambling names and are popular fish in the area. The last one just sounded cool to me.

I suppose if you wanted to take the obvious route you could go with one of these:

Jokers
Spades
Kings
Aces
Dealers
Bouncers
BlackJacks

Those first two would probably not pass. Joker would be used to mock the team, and Spade is a derogatory term for black people.

I think Kings, Aces, Diamonds, High Rollers are good gambling related terms. Despite those terms being good, Atlantic city is trying to diversify and might not like them using a gambling related term for the team name.

Empire would have been way better for Atlantic city and they should have called Albany the Phoenixes.

I really do like the Express. In Minor League Baseball there is a team in the AAA Pacific Coast League, the Round Rock Express. They are owned by Nolan Ryan and his fastball used to be nicknamed the Express. Their marketing and gimmicks in and around the ballpark is a locomotive, the sound of a big train rumbling by, train bells ringing etc. that they use after home runs, strikeouts etc...

I do know that AC was founded when a railroad was built connecting the city to I think Philly. Anyway, makes a lot of sense, isn't "typical" and lots of options when it comes to mascots, logos, marketing, etc...

Nolan Ryan's fastball was known as The Ryan Express (it topped 100.3 miles per hour)

Not to mention that the game of Monopoly is based upon the street names and locations in Atlantic City. The mascot could be a variation of Daddy Warbucks.

There could also be a race during a commercial break between the pieces. (Thimble, car, dog, etc...

I am fine with Aces. I am glad mostly because it would be a plural team name!!

I remember seeing somewhere on these boards that the name couldn't be the Aces. If true, I'd be disappointed

Aces is a good team name, but it was not among the final names according to Cat Country 107.3 FM

I ran with BlackJacks since it was one of my spit-balling names.
