No way, that is an awesome name...
The name is hella good.
Doom Ledge Cup?
NorCal Derby is better
Long story short ...
You still have the Quakes to root for!
I said we're doomed.
I didn't say we're debased.
If you are debased, you would be a Galaxy fan!
So with Sacramento most likely in, need some cup names there and if you are to assume STL gets in, they will need a cup name for rival games with KC (obviously), CHI (since hockey and baseball have created that feel for years)
Not sure if STL would consider MINN and maybe later NASH, but they are geographically close enough for reasonable travel. Austin of course will have DAL & HOU (some kind of Texas Version of Cascada (?)
MIA obviously with ORL, not sure if ATL is to far to be a rival.
NASH has ATL geographically close and a case could be made for Cincy and STL.
Bottom line, despite a large country , we are seeing travel and if we add teams in such a way as geographically close, can only help that.
To me, big gaps still exist between ATL and DC (NCFC anyone?) CHI and TOR (Detroit?)
The future will be fun..
Is Sacramento in for sure?
They've pretty much done all Garber asked for- great downtown stadium site with transit, an existing team with history of good support in lower divisions and they went out and got another deep pocket owner added and have total support from the city /local government. Nothing in life is a sure bet, but if Vegas took odds, I'd put some money down.
IF Garber/MLS doesn't select, any future owner should be wary about all the hoops to jump through and still not get a team.
Good instant rival with SJ, Nor Cal and So Cal (LAFC/LAG) will be good also and then geographically, SLC not too far and Portland to the north, so they have reasonable distances for traveling fans.
I’d love Sacramento to join the league but before, I actually think Garber wants St Louis as well as another east coast team.
I think you should have some sort of cup with Cincinnati and Kansas City to honor your shared NBA heritage, but that's just me.
There is always USOC.
