DENVER (CBS4)– The Boston Patriots changed their city name to embrace their entire region of New England. The Arizona Cardinals dropped their city name to embrace their entire state. Could the Broncos be next in line?
A Commerce City man is spearheading an effort to make the Broncos name more representative of the entire state.
Broncos fan Michael Scanlon is proposing the unthinkable.
“Broncos country is so much more than just Denver,” he told CBS4’s Tom Mustin.
Scanlon works for the chamber of commerce in Commerce City. He’s pushing a solo plan to change the Denver Broncos name to the more inclusive “Colorado” Broncos.
“Denver is a great city but there are tons of great cities,” he said. “Colorado is a one of a kind brand, and I really think it fits in well with the Broncos.”
