Thanks, In Tacoma.

Tacoma has a properly named club: Tacoma Tide FC. Let's help Seattle keep theirs!

I know I'm gonna get smacked around for this by long-time Seattle football fans, but I hate the name Sounders. To me its just a completely dated 70s reference. I went with "Alliance", and I think combining that with FC would be pretty sweet.

At least you voted!

I don't think Alliance stands even a small chance. It will be "Sounders" or "FC."

We still call ourselves "Puget Sounders" today, right? SO I am not sure how the name is dated. MLS can make it fresh again and take us to the top!

Tacoma has a soccer team??? That I did not know. I will go and vote, no problem, but please do tell where I can find out more about supporting our local Tacoma soccer club?

Kay never mind, found the web page. Odd that the "Tacoma" tide doesn't play in Tacoma. Though I suppose University Place Tide just doesn't have the same ring.

Glad you found it, Catherine! The Tacoma Tide are a lot of fun to watch, and the level of play might surprise you. Come on out to a match this spring or summer!


WRITE IN "Seattle Sounders!" :)
