@Denver2Portland:While some of the nicknames are lame, Dynamo is a
common club title stemming mostly in former communist/Soviet Bloc nations. It is
not a nickname in the sense used here.Dynamo Dresden, Dinamo Zagreb,
Dinamo Minsk, and Dynamo Moscow are just a few of the clubs with the title. The
title was used to refer to the electric generator created and alludes to the
industry of the city.
Bring back the Cosmos name!
I'm glad NYC is getting another team with money. This only helps the MLS
across the globe.Now what needs to happen is that the MLS needs to
drop the west and east conferences and adapt more what The Premier League does
which is just one pool. Also clubs like Chicago, Portland, Seattle, Houston,
etc., need to drop their nicknames (Fire, Timbers, Sounders, Dynamo) after
their city name and just do what what FC Dallas, Real Salt Lake, Sporting Kansas
City, D.C. United, Toronto FC do, just an easy more professional feel to their
club and city name.
It would be awesome to have a team with infinite financial resources join the
league so they can buy whomever they want and win the Cup and the Shield every
year or two.
