the actual name of the angels is the los angeles angels of anaheim, so the location IS referenced in the name. this could be a bonus answer but it SHOULDNT be a real answer.

Foxboro, MA IS in New England; just not in Boston
Feb 2nd, 2010 at 18:00 GMT
Tampa Bay actually references the region, like the "Carolina" teams, so the Tampa Bay teams are not poorly named at all.

You are Saban4pres, tat is why its not one of the answers.
Feb 2nd, 2010 at 18:06 GMT
As tjconn728 said, the city is called Tampa. "Tampa Bay" refers to the region. Also, "nonetheless" is one word.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim has been removed (I didn't realize it had the specification as part of the name when I created this quiz.) There are several answers as bonus answers... such as the Tampa Bay teams who play in Tampa, but not the one who plays in St. Petersburg. New England is also a bonus answer as it technically is in New England, but isn't the city/state they play in. Foxboro Patriots or Massachusetts Patriots would have kept them entirely off the list. Carolina teams are not part of this as their name is actually part of the state name, even if it isn't the full state name, (Like Washington Wizards is acceptable even though they aren't called the Washington D.C. Wizards). @tjconn728 - This isn't about being poorly named teams, it's about teams that just aren't located where their names advertise them to be.

the new york islanders play in uniondale, new york
Feb 2nd, 2010 at 21:53 GMT
@lightning44: Yep, they play in the state of New York... and that's why they aren't on the list.

fedex field is in landover no hyattsville
Mar 10th, 2010 at 20:26 GMT
I appreciate your comment umterps2012, however, Landover is an unincorporated community. The exact location could be argued either way whether it's Landover or Hyattsville based on zip code, but the fact remains that neither 'city' is a part of the team name, so if you guess the team, you get the answer. The quiz isn't looking for city names, it's looking for team names.

St. Petersburg is in the Tampa Bay area, so the Rays shouldn't be on there.
Aug 1st, 2010 at 21:25 GMT
Pretty sure St. Petersburg is in Tampa Bay.

What's with all the deception in the NFC East?

And the AFC East (Jets, Bills, Patriots)
