How about the Clippers, who played previously in San Diego? Also, the Pistons who played in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The New York Yankees played in Baltimore as the Orioles before moving to New York and the current Baltimore Orioles played in St. Louis as the Browns before moving to Baltimore. There may be more, but those are the ones missing that I can come up with off the top of my head.

Nice game, but you missed a whole bunch of teams. Flames moved from Atlanta to Calgary in 1981. Twins moved from Washington to Minnesota in 1961. Philadelphia 76ers started life as the Syracuse Nationals and moved in 1964. Baltimore Orioles started life as the St. Louis Browns and came to Baltimore in 1951. The Hawks moved to Atlanta from St. Louis in 1969. One you had (Toronto) never moved. They may have had a different name, but the home town has always been Toronto

Also the Bears (Decatur), Lions (Portsmouth), and Chiefs (Dallas Texans)?

It doesn't accept it if you just type in "Maple Leafs," even though with every other team you can just enter the nickname. i'd suggest scrapping it altogether rather than entering "Maple Leafs" as an alternate answer, for the reasons given by CoachWall above.

The Brewers were the Seattle Pilots. Good try, but make sure you have all the answers before you make a quiz.

I guess you're counting the Angels since they played in Los Angeles first and then moved to Anaheim, but as previously mentioned, the Yankees, Orioles, Twins and Brewers should all be included. Also, to be completely technical, the Baltimore Ravens don't retain any of the Cleveland Browns' history. Supposedly the new Browns franchise is regarded as the same as the first one, even though it obviously isn't the case

Like everyone else said... make sure you know the answers before making a quiz. F-

This is why you need a source for your quizzes.

This was a horrendously-researched quiz. In addition to the other franchise relocations that previous posters have mentioned, you also missed the Houston Rockets starting in San Diego, the San Antonio Spurs starting in Dallas (as the Chaparrals), the Washington Wizards starting in Baltimore (as the Bullets) and the Washington Redskins starting in Boston. Do your homework next time.

To add to the list of missed teams, the Chargers started in LA, and the Chiefs were originally the Dallas Texans.
