slapshot Posted December 18, 2003 Share Posted December 18, 2003 I saw this on the other board, but maybe people here have more insight on this...When did the NY/NJ MetroStars drop the "NY/NJ"? On the MLS and team website, there is no mention of NY/NJ anymore. The team is simply listed as "MetroStars", whereas every other team is listed by geographical name. I did a search on it on the team website, and the last mention appeared to be April 2002.Someone said the team was named after MetroMedia, whose owner was one of the partners of the team (or the other way around). But some other company owns them, so the "Metro" part would only refer to the NYC metro area, and not the comany anymore.I checked hqfl.dk to see if older logos had NY/NJ in them, but all logos there only had the team name alone or in the 2 crests (cityscape or shield-thing).So is the team still officially the NY/NJ MetroStars, or just the MetroStars? And are there any other North American teams in recent memory that just went by the nickname with no city? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
