My vote would be to just clean up the crest a little bit, rather than try to create something entirely new.

Keeping the name “Michigan” Bucks may sound fine…but historically has been an automatic “two strikes” against teams hailing from Flint. Flint residents are still very proud of their city…problems and all. Teams often when they relocate to Flint will keep or revert to “Michigan” in their name as a way to pad losses should the team fail. That way…they can move the team to another Michigan city and not have to incur and rebranding.

Also how about Vehicle City FC or SC. And yes I know that the city of Flint was part of the Sit Down Strike. I think Strikers sounds too corny. Most of my family worked for the Buick plant. So would love to see some kind of homage to the Buick plant.
