Wow. I see a lot of names on that list, where someone would have to explain to me how it was offensive.

I notice they don't have the best team name I heard all year. This was at our city tournament, team name was "Herbie VerSmells".

Got a big cheer when the TD announced it over the PA.

It's pretty obvious to me these folks have wayyyyy to much time on their hands. Some I just didn't get the reason for the ban.

Now the APA is saying that you can't have team names with sexual connotations what are they going to do next ban all the advertising on TV. This shouldn't surprise me I never thought much of the APA anyway. Next they will start telling the women, that blouse is to low cut you can't wear that.

What next skirts must be worn and they must come to below the knee, or maybe revert back to the middle ages and say no women because they shouldn't be aloud in pool rooms or bars. Stuff like that really gives me the creeps. What next? Penalized points for swearing! Oh my?

Some funny names on the list. I actually knew one of the teams LOL. I can't figure out why 'ROCK OUT WITH CHALK OUT' was banned.

Good to see "The Meat" and "Fah Cue" are still available for use.

Some friends submitted "Kill Whitey" for a TAP team, but "corporate" said "Name Not Approved"...so they changed their name to
"Name Not Approved"

here's the dumb part. "we don't want to project a low class image or offend the twenty other people in your local league... So let's post every single tacky offensive name on our website so millions of people can be offended and get a bad impression."

I mean, we don't need two hundred examples of unacceptable names, if that's really the point of the list.

Hahaha. I got a kick out of this. My team name was "Off Constantly" in 2011, but it wasn't an APA league. I wonder where they pull the list from. Surely there aren't too many if any other teams with that name.

I had fun with it anyway, lol.

They make a big stink about sexually offensive names but Janette Lee can have her boobies hanging out all over the place in every APA photo... wait I got it! what if you made a Asian sexually based name?? Apparently that is cool bro. Start the list below.
