I remember reading along time ago that Paul Brown considered originally naming The Bengals, 'The Ohio Bengals' to reflect the wider fan base in southern Ohio, and to try and attract non-Browns fans in Columbus to come down to Cincinnati to watch their ball.

Anyone like the idea of renaming the club to reflect its home state, just like the folks in Minneapolis, Nashville and Phoenix do ?

Yeah, but I live in Columbus. I think it might upset the majority of the fan base.

I wouldn't particularly care one way or the other. Not like there is a storied history tied to the Cincinnati Bengals that becoming the Ohio Bengals would interfere with. I do think Cincinnati Bengals rolls of the tongue better.

Only because it's 50 years old now.

Very Happy

That said, changing the name now won't accomplish anything.

I think anyone currently in Ohio has already chosen their team and changing the name won't lure anyone else in. Back in 1968 it may have made sense.
