As the XFL put out their Team Name/Logo clues, we tried our best to guess what they might be (Part 1 / Part 2). With less than 24 hours remaining until the big announcement, the league has put out a teaser video, that seems to have a lot of clues.
The first clues come in just 2 seconds into the video. First we see a huge wave, followed by possibly a dragon’s eye. If I had to guess, I’d say this is for Seattle. The league has already publicly trademarked five potential names for the Seattle franchise, but there is still no confirmation on if they’ll use any of them.
The next set of clues show a few stone statues, I would call them Gargoyles. It’s hard to pin a location on this one. My initial thought is New York because of the architecture; but, there may be a better candidate down the list. We’ll hedge our bets here and say either New York or St. Louis.
This one screams Houston to me. In the background you can see the oil machinery and there’s only one city in the XFL that is known for oil; and that is Houston.
There’s not a lot to see in this set, but if you listen closely in the video you may get some better clues. In the first scene with the overview of the street you can hear some cars honking. I know, real crazy! That being said, there’s two cities that I would associate with traffic on this list and that’s New York and Los Angeles. The next scene shows a first person view of “something” running at night. During the brief clip you can hear some sort of growl. Sticking with my original guesses, either Los Angeles or New York.
Originally I lumped this image with the two below, but then realized they may be representing two different franchises. In these clips you see air fighters in the sky and a side-view of a jet engine. When I had grouped these together with the next set I thought DC for sure. After splitting the group up, I’ll say Dallas or St. Louis.
As mentioned above, these images still fit in a way. One take away with these set is it seems more geared towards veterans or fallen soldiers. The first image is a statue of what looks to be revolutionary era soldiers, followed by what looked to be a soldiers funeral. Gotta be DC!
These next set of clues first show a swamp, followed by another first-person view of something running through a field. Possibly some type of swamp monster? Who knows?! Using the first clue, this leads me to believe this set is for the Tampa Bay franchise.
The last set of clues first shows someone getting a tattoo, followed by scene showing bikers. I really like the imagery in this one, but hard to pin-point an exact location. If I had to make a wild guess, the only one that really makes sense to me is Los Angeles.
