For something specifically Melrosian, it should be the Canners, in honor of Friends Baked Beans, which were made in Melrose before a factory on Eastern Ave in Malden became the center of production.
Another local reference would be the Vulcans, for the vulcanized rubber that became the basis for the rubber shoe (aka sneaker) factories in Melrose and Malden.
I propose the “Railers.” This is similar to the Raiders but is in reference to Melrose having 3 commuter rail station, and highlights the importance rail had to the development of the city.
I like that Tom, I feel like I got railed every time i get my water bill.
Way to hijack the thread…pretty lame man.
COME ON MAN!!! Don't be a Lame Duck.
