He said the nickname would likely please backers of the old Baltimore Colts while enabling him to avoid a legal battle with the NFL. While the name may be similar to Baltimore's old NFL team, the logo is not. Speros displayed pictures of four possible helmets, all featuring the profile of a horse's head against a silver background. The old Baltimore Colts, now the Indianapolis Colts, have a blue horseshoe on a white helmet.
