Yea, I prefer our Nickname convention, provided we choose decent names.

New York City FC is just sooo.......................BLAND. Like naming the new coupe on the street. "New Coupe 2013".

Hell, I'd go for EMPIRE FC, it least it ain't so litteral.

I'm pretty sure RSL has a partnership with Real Madrid. Either Way, I don't have a problem with the name.

They did, not sure if they still do. Still self appointed and still stupid. Fake Salt Lake is much better fitting =)
