This might sound like a bit of troll question, but I'm looking for an honest answer, because every time I see the club motto I think, how can "tradition" be part of the motto for a brand new team (when the team was formed)? I wasn't a Fire fan back when MLS was just started, so I don't know if it was explained or what, but obviously, a brand new team has no traditions. And I don't think the Fire were meaning that they were going to continue the tradition of "Chicago Soccer" set by the Sting or whatever. Did they mean that they thought it was important to create "tradition" as part of the club going forward? I'd be interested to know anyone's thoughts on the matter.
