    Not a fan, but from an outside perspective, I really don't see how "red" relates to the club. What about something like "The Rayados Nation"?

    I think Rayados is more designated to Necaxa and Monterrey. I think somebody mentioned earlier that they wanted to stay away from and ethnic link.

    How about Fallen Angels? Battered Angels?....... some what of an LA connection there.

    Really. Why is it better to join the Legion? Why should some white guy, Asian girl or African-American family want to join the Legion? Don't get me wrong, I'm just curious about your answer.

    Thank you for the offer REBANOSAGRADO, but our interest is in creating a club with loyalties primarily towards Chivas USA. I've got nothing but respect, the Legion is impressive but their primary support is towards CD Guadalajara.

    As for the meeting, you guys already know where I stand. Just give me a time and place and I'll be there. Maybe a roll call should be posted in a new thread.

    Keep the names coming, we are far away from settling on anything. To be honest none of the names have really struck me yet. Maybe we can pull from the area's history. We could be the Rancheros or even the Dons.

    I would avoid anything related to Victoria Street. We would be TSOL if the team decided to move out to the IE.

    Though my roots are from Mexico, my spanish is not so good. I feel very disconnected with Legion cause of the whole language barrier and not being a avid fan of CD Guadalajara.

    I too think staying away from "red ____" is a good idea. I'm still trying to think of a name and am drawing a blank, but "Fallen Angels" is what I like best so far.

    I can't say that I really like the lost or fallen angel ideas. I think that there is a baseball team of the same name that wears red and white. to be honest I doubt that any of us intend to be Angelic while putting down our adversaries.

    BTW: What is a Capra? I have no idea.

    whoever said "red herd" - thats the most legit one ive read on here.

    and since there's opinion against using "red", why not "the herd"?

    or
    "the buck stop" lol

    Mayhem actually sounds pretty decent. For some reason it conjures up the sight of a goat stampede, raging across the HDC field. Which brings up a few more names...

    The Stampede
    Raging Goats
    The Red and White Posse(Its in my blood)
    Chiva Mayhem(Legionario)

    While a name is a great idea, we really haven't discussed the actual formation of this group. I guess its time for a roll call to see if this project has any weight. I'll post a roll call!

    According to the wiki the iriginal name of CD Guadalajara was Club Union in 1906.

    So, how about:

    The Union
    Union 1906
    Union Empire
    Red 'N' White Union

    Where going back to Guadalajara with that one...but The Union sounds good.

    How's about District 05
    It sounds L.A.-ish and the 05 for our year of inception.

    I actually like the Union idea! While we are trying to create a supporters group primarilly for Chivas USA, we might as well show some repect for the institution that created them. A little bit of history may help us out in the grand scheme of creation. Here are a few names....

    Nueva Union
    Union Norte
    Union Libertad (for our Cuban friends)
    Union 07
    Chiva Union
    Union Ultras
    Union Boys

    How about "The Sacred Boys" "The Holly army" going back to the sacred flock moniker of chivas. But i also like the whole Union thing.

    I just thought of another one. "The Sacred Legion" or just "Sacred Legion" to keep the ties to our other chiva brothers.

    I think "The Union" works pretty good and I would vote for it.....but how about this. We call ourselves "The Wall".

    1. We can be a Wall of red and white.
    2. We can be a Wall of sound.
    3. Our anthem can be "Another brick in the Wall' from Pink Floyd.

    We don't need no David Beckham, we don't need no crowd control,
    No Alex Lalas in the boardroom, Hey Galaxy leave those Gals alone,
    All in all we're just another brick in The Wall........





    We don't need no education
    We dont need no thought control
    No dark sarcasm in the classroom
    Teachers leave them kids alone
    Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!
    All in all it's just another brick in the wall.
    All in all you're just another brick in the wall.



    If you need convincing then in the immortal words of Colonel Nathan Jessep I say "You want me on that Wall! You need me on that Wall!".

    We can sing the anthem to spur our boys in red and white when they form The Wall in front of goal. Banners with bricks painted on them with a menacing goat's head. We can have tee shirts with Nathan Jessup on them. The music is a great hook and would get everybody singing with us. We can substitute different names and teams when we sing.

    Give it some thought guys.
