    I'm curious as to what everyone things about the stars on Pachuca's crest, specifically the 4 gold stars on the bottom. As far as I know, 3 represent the CONCACAF titles. The remaining star represents (I'm assuming) the Copa Sudamericana title.

    Should that title be represented by a star? Does it deserve a different color the way it used to be? Does it deserve a special star all of its own? As far as I know there isn't really a standard in Mexico, plus this situation is unique to the entire world.

    Perhaps the crest itself should be redesigned to incorporate the star (ala Aston Villa)? What do you think?

    I would like the Sudamericana star to have a more prominent role in the club crest, after all it's the clubs most important title, but I suppose the clubs administrators would like to place the same value on all of the international championships won.

    While Sudamericana is a big deal, I still say CONCACAF titles are more important because it is the federation Pachuca plays in. I'm not downplaying it at all, but if Boca Juniors came and mopped the floor with everyone in the CCL, I don't think they'd find it more important or even of equal importance to winning the Copa Liberatadores. There's something special about being the big dog of your region, despite how little respect it may get.

    The FMF and MLS are much, much better leagues than most of the world realizes, MLS especially. Just because we're 40ish years behind in being world powers compared to Italy, England, Germany, Brazil, etc...doesn't mean our club teams are complete rubbish. We'll get there eventually. CONCACAF is rising faster than Europe realizes.

    i think the suda americana is better than 5 concacaf titles, cause it shows we are dominant everywhere.

    It should be Blue for league wins, Gold for international wins.

    CopaSudamerica should also be Gold but should have have a special image embedded in it that says "Sudamerica" (like the Germans have the year in each of their World Cup stars) to distinguish it and other future titles from being outside of CONCACAF. There should only be a different color star if it is the FIFA Club World Cup championship.

    But if CopaSudamerica gets a star, should SuperLiga get one also, even if it is a small one? Superliga is a subchampionship because CONCACAF Champions League is more important. If you look at it like this, Copa Libertadores is more important than Copa Sudamerica (although the champions of both play each other in the Recopa).

    Normal gold stars for league titles. Bigger, brighter gold stars for CCL. Unique star (maybe with an S in it) for Southamerican Cup.

    IF they win the CWC, they gotta think of something that is cooler than just a star. Something pretty phat and off tha hook. Maybe have the year that they won it permanently on the jersey, in glittering platinum or somethin'.
