    I'm not sure why he had a hard on for either the Atoms or Fury. They both where among the worst attended teams in old NASL. Also before the Union announced their name barely any fans where voting to revive either brand. So I'd say both brands are good as dead in this city. The ASL aren't going to win over any fans by naming teams after them.

    Sorry but I don't agree about Atoms, in 1973 and 1974 they averaged about 11000 people per match, which was not bad at all for the times, and if they did not mean anything explain me then why in 2013 the players of '73 have been called to Union Stadium for the 40th annversary of Dallas' final

    Fury did not average much because they were a shitty team not because of their brand

    I agree with you about ASL, that league is a joke and I hope they will soon close shop

    Paying tribute to former teams in the area just like the Steel. You can disagree all you want, but I'm telling you people in this area don't relate to those teams. That's why the Atoms and Fury names no longer have any weight. Hell, the final four names voted for the Union where A.C. Philadelphia, Philadelphia City, S.C. Philadelphia, & Philadelphia Union. But, I suppose someone from Italy is more in the know then someone from the Philly area, lol.

    Ok I get what you mean and ok if people like those names good for them, but to me they are hideous, the Union was the one who is at least decent but how can people like these cheap imitations of european names? Paying tribute means respecting the roots and all, so they still have their weight even if people don't relate to them because they didn't last long

    You want to "pay tribute," build a ********ing statue.

    Definitely nice for a change. Hopefully Wilt's meetings with leaders in Escondido and Oceanside go well. They were supposed to meet with Escondido at the very least last week to discuss sites, possibly near the Escondido Transit Center (which would put the stadium right off the 15 and 78 as well as the Sprinter). As well as a meeting with Oceanside. I've not seen any articles on how either of those meetings went.
