We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

shame if they change the colors and name.  Like them both.

crest could be improved but don't dislike.

Sale - sure why not

 

Seems like they are trying to boost interest by doing all this stuff.

They did both when the franchise moved from SJ.
Won 2 MLS Cups with those players.
Then, in a TSM moment, lost in 2008 to eventual
Western Division Champions NYRB!

and have not been a powerhouse since,
although they got their revenge on us in 2013:

Lustre has worn off the brand new SSS.

So many cool possibilities for names. So of course they'll go with Houston FC

Maybe the new teams in the southeast will give them some good rivalries and stir some interest.

 

They had such a difficult time getting that SSS. Now they also have a women's team and free public transport to the game.

In 2008, I saw their dumpy old stadium.

Attendance reported as 30K for that playoff game.
In 2013, saw their fancy new stadium.

The Metro lines were under construction then.
The franchise is valued highly in MLS,
but like RB, player payroll is low.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Changing the colors would be terrible, the orange makes them stand out more and this league definitely doesn't need more teams with red or blue in their colors.

Perhaps more people identify with basic colors.
