I'm not trying to be a fan, nor am I trying to bash soccer. Just curios if fans thought the MLS was lame for ripping off the names of other established clubs.
Soccer is one of the only sports will multiple names. I don't know how or why the tradition in soccer started that way but it did.
We picked, voted, on the same of the Sounders F.C. so I don't think many fans consider it "ripping off."
