Hmm...well, actually I've noticed that there are in fact a number of other projects that abbreviate all their team names (PSP is a good example that I can think of right off the bat). I still think that it would be better to abbreviate long team names such as this, since otherwise the long usernames might mess up the columns on the stats pages.
