Grahame Jones of the LA Times takes a look at the expansion teams coming into the league and what they might be called. As Grahame points out, it seems like a minor detail in the grand scheme of things but it's something that must be figured out.
He points out the existence of St. Louis Soccer United and wonders if MLS could stand to have two United clubs.
That might confuse non-soccer fans but if St. Louis gets a team and names it United, it probably wouldn't be too confusing to us. American sports is transfixed on city names and nicknames as part of the full team name but many clubs in the world don't have their city names on their logo or as part of their name or anything. The Buenos Aires xeneizes? Not quite.
