Beloit Cheeseballs
Beloit Moo
Beloit Polka Pike
Beloit Sky Carp
Beloit Supper Clubbers

I guess Cheeseballs or polka pike, but these are all awful. nothing wrong with the snappers.

I would have gone with the Beloit Dobblers.

Logo could have been a guy in a trench coat holding a boom box over his head.

These are all complete garbage. I am guessing Sky Carp was decided prior to this charade of opening a fan suggestion and voting. If you wanted to go with a goose, just make it Beloit Honkers and sell a bunch of adult play on word gear along with your normal merch.

Refresh / rebooting is fine, but Snappers is way better than any of these.

They couldn't even get the cheese name right - it's supposed to be the Beloit Cheese Curds.

All stupid garbage. Doesn't matter since they'll change the name in five years anyway. And look for another paint by numbers logo from Brandios I'm sure that will be praised for being cute and quirky.

What’s wrong with “Snappers”?

new stadium, so new name I guess. The interesting thing is that last year Beloit was on the 42 team chopping block.

How about Beloit Moo Moo Cows? All of the names are awful, so why not make it more fun?

People always vocally hate these name changes, but the merchandise tends to sell like crazy. With these teams not making any money this year, you really can't blame them for the name rebrand.

(also see the response from the owner, Quint Studer, to get an idea of why they're changing the name)

As a former Binghamton resident, you get used to it. "Rumble Ponies" ain't too bad...

Im ok with Rumble Ponies. It's unique and you can work with it. For these "finalists" I can match up and do better

Cheesballs - Cheese Curds
Moo - Beloit Bovine
Polka Pike - Beloit Strikers, Bass, Bobbers, so many more fishing options
Sky Carp - Honkers, Gobblers
Supper Clubbers - such a bad idea for a team name, maybe Food Trucks?
Taco Trucks?

I like Beloit Super Clubbers. The mascot can be a baby seal wearing a cape.

Was supper clubbers supposed to be super clubbers? If not is it supposed to be the supper clubs as the mascot or people who go to supper clubs? Either way is the mascot just 2 people eating a meal?

Clubbers is fine w/o Super or Supper. Supper is terrible. Super Clubbers has a baseball angle as well as a disco angle.

Beloit Cheese Curds or even Beloit Curds....that merchandise would have absolutely flown off the shelves. Much like the Wisconsin Udder Tuggers stuff did. I barely acknowledge a team exists in beloit and I own zero T-Rats gear EXCEPT an Udder Tuggers shirt. I would have definitely bought a cheese curd related item. Of course that may be what they are going for with the cheese balls thing...so aybe a logo only item may be decent if cheeseballs isn't included.

Instead they pick?

I went Sky Carp. It is the only one that even slightly sounds cool, is indeed funny, and well...isn't completely dumb. The other four are just beyond dumb sounding.

Always thought if a team was named Moose , that would be most frustrating name ever. Can't say Mooses or Meese. So dumb that there is no plural for Moose. It's not really relate but the word annoys me

Have always liked the Snappers name and logos, especially the old logo. Heck my sons coach pitch baseball team this summer we went with that name. Used to have a fitted hat with that old logo years ago, wore it to death. Just checked out their team store and they still sell the old logo fitted 5950, bought that so fast. With this lame name change they may not have those too much longer, glad I picked one up.
