Cleveland Rockefellers and have the logo be a caricature Bob Feller playing a Gibson Guitar on fire
This generation associates Rockafeller with Jay Z's RocAFella Records.

I like it on some level...but they'd quickly become the Rocks, which I like far less.

Why not take the Clippers name from the AAA team and rename their team?

We'd immediately lead the league in alliteration. Not quite topping the Philadelphia Phillies, but certainly equal to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Because the Columbus franchise is an affiliate & not owned by the Cleveland franchise. The Columbus franchise controls that name & logo..

There are a number (around 30 or so) minor league clubs owned in whole or in part a major league team. CLE does not have any of those above the complex level...

Sure, CLE can try to "buy" the moniker & logo from Columbus, but would you rather the team spend money on buying the name away or spending money on the product on the field??

I just hope they don't have to pay for soda out of the machine..

Why this infatuation here with the name Clippers? I think of the NBA franchise, which was the worst franchise in the NBA for close to 35 years. Owned by a racist skin flint. If any team in Cleveland is worthy of the name Clippers... It's the football team and their 20 year reign of terror. I don't get clippers though and Cleveland. To me, the ships more associated with here are ore haulers.
