It can be tough to remember Buffalo's pro teams. New York City unfortunately takes most of the fame for the state's sports.

You should clarify that this is teams that purport to represent parts or the whole of NY state by virtue of their name. When you say teams whose stadium is in NJ you immediately bring the Devils into the mix.

That doesn't matter. The San Francisco 49ers play in Santa Clara which is in Santa Clara County. Abutting Santa Clara (city) and the county seat of Santa Clara County is San Jose. The NHL's San Jose Sharks play there. Should the 49ers be the Santa Clara 49ers or should the San Jose Sharks be the San Francisco Sharks?

The original name of the Knicks was the Knickerbockers and that name was never dismissed, the team and media just shortened it to Knicks. I tried Knickerbockers for fun and it didn't work, which is fine.

Did you also try "Metropolitans" for the Mets?

There is a difference. Whereas the Knicks comment is correct regarding that team, The baseball team has always officially been just the "Mets". The confusion is that the team is operated by the "New York Metropolitan Baseball Club".

Way too easy. And the Devils are more of a NY team than the Sabres. But thanks anyway.

How are the Devils more of a New York team than the Sabres? The Devils play in New Jersey and have "New Jersey" in their name, while the Sabres are named for and play in a city in New York.

Yes, I read the instructions, but consistency has to apply. It specifically says "New York state"--state in bold type, then says "even if the stadium is in New Jersey". No logic to that one! Gotta be consistent. And to top it off, what about the Devils? I know, I know...."New Jersey Devils, as opposed to "New York Giants" and "New York Jets". Still though, consistency must apply.

Man, what is with people trying to claim the Devils as a New York team? They're called the New Jersey Devils. They play in New Jersey. There's... not a lot of ambiguity there.
