I think putting the poker, gambling theme makes it a little hokey.
Not sure there's anything "not politically correct" about "Spades". There's nothing more "hokey" than Anaheim's Mighty Ducks... The Las Vegas Spades is a far cry from that, and if anything, comes far closer to personifying something the city is all about. Bounty Hunters would never fly, lol... Regulators is just hilarious :-)
Anyhow, I would've suggested "Stars", with the whole Negreanu association after all, but that's Dallas' team already :-)
Think about it, "that Las Vegas team has talent in Spades" ;-)
