If it was another roller derby team they might have a shot. But I don’t think so with different sports.  Maybe our legal experts can chime in. 
I'll have to ask the Rangers attorneys, or perhaps United.  I honestly don't know the law here.

Why would that stop you from commenting?

It's a money grab...the roller derby team will change their name to the Indians for the right price...

I would think it would be more publicity for them. People stumbling upon their web site when looking for the baseball team.

It's not a money grab.  It's more poor due diligence on the baseball team's part.  They should have had the payoff lined up before they made the name announcement.  This is not a case of cyber squatting.  Frankly, I think the roller derby squad probably had to sue now, or else at some point they would forfeit their name rights.

The roller derby “team” has not competed since 2019.  Apparently they Guardians have been negotiating with the Guardians but the negotiations broke down.

You know what, settle out of court and make the baseball team take the right name, The Spiders.

The Rockers.

'Rockers' was the name of Cleveland's short-lived WNBA franchise (1997-2003, third WNBA club to fold after Miami and Portland).

Great song!  (Up there with Apolitical Science).

Well, they blew their chance to call them the Cleveland River Burners.

it was inspired by the statues at the entrance to the Hope Memorial bridge near the park that are called the "Guardians of Traffic".

Besides Spiders, Rockers would have been a good choice given the RnR HoF.  A local radio station ran a poll a few months ago, Spiders and Rockers were #1 & 2, with Guardians finishing 3rd.

I liked the Rockers too.  Plus they could have played "Cleveland Rocks" on their scoreboard during every game.
