The Rochester Rattlers could be on the move.
In new documents, Major League Lacrosse has filed trademarks for the "Dallas Rattlers." The filings include a logo that looks exactly like Rochester's logo with Rochester replaced with Dallas.
In the filing, the purpose of the trademark is "entertainment in the nature of lacrosse games, competitions and tournaments."
A secondary logo is also included in the filings.
In response MLL Commissioner David Gross told Inside Lacrosse: "The potential option of having the Rattlers in Dallas has been openly discussed for a couple of years now. As with keeping all potential options open we filed for a trademark, have obtained a domain name and social media handles. This is not the first time the league has done this as a way to keep our potential options from being encumbered."
