Change the name of the Texas Rangers to the Dallas Rangers of Arlington
This petition had 48 supporters
For the longest time, fans of baseball in the Lone Star State have been subjected to the assumption that all of us are fans of the Rangers.
This simply is not true.
There is a heated rivalry between Houston and Dallas, and to allow one city to claim the state as their home turf just won't do.
In the same way the California Angels changed their name to more accurately represent their true geographic location, I'm proposing the Rangers be forced to do the same.
They claim Dallas as their home town, yet play in Arlington (leaving Fort Worth pretty much out in the cold). Why, then, should we all be thrown under their umbrella?
Encourage them to rename the team to more accurately reflect their location:
The Dallas Rangers of Arlington.
It certainly works for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
It makes sense to me... But I'm just a Houston Astros fan.
(They play in Houston.)
