Premier League team names based on their crests

What if Premier League team names were based on their crests?

Premier League crests are weird. Whereas most logos in American sports were created or altered in the last 40 years to look good on TV, jerseys, hats and anything else that can be sold -- even urinal cakes -- European crests are regal. Or try to be. Maybe they're just historic. More likely, they were just made so long ago and the names and identities of the clubs have changed so much that the branding just isn't as clean as it is in the U.S.

Thank god that's the case.

Some European crests are hilarious. Just look at the Premier League, and thankfully for us, Buzzfeed did. The wonderful folks over there named the 20 teams in the league based on their crests.


An Atlanta MLS team would be wise to consider adopting this crest.
