Team without a Place?

Or a Team without a FIXED Place

First popping into my mind - the Harlem Globetrotters

Could something like this ever happen in the big leagues?

Obviously with the potential for apparel it could be everywhere in symbol.  But essentially it would be barnstorming.  A sense of place is the largest component of a franchise.

So if one is a veteran or troop, they have the potential for franchise.  A navy can dock in many places.

And what if their field was floating? The Armada.  So many harbors.  From Anchorage to Honolulu.  Miami to Jacksonville to Boston.  Houston to Tampa.  It's one of the reasons I'm fixated on a West Coast brand - sustainability and the "absence makes the heart grow fonder" factor that'd boost Hawaii and Alaska.  And absences like the NBA in Seattle.  The NHL not there and ditto for Portland.  A northwest brand between those 3 mentioned states and big time hockey.

I like portable names like Army, Navy, Truckers, Bikers, Roadies and Outcasts.

Could an Outlanders brand suffice for the more nodal and emptier barron lands of the American west and north.  Could Boise and SLC get some more love that way?  Could American football take on a more world football (soccer'ier) tone in its next namings.  Imagine it:  Outlander Football.
