American Premier Division - Phase III: Atlanta & Seattle Added (3/20)

Recommended Posts

Alamo City SC

Arsenal Atlanta

Royal Charlotte

As a guy that has lived in SA for most of his life, I kinda don't get this name.

SA isn't usually reffered to as "Alamo City" like others like Chicago with "Windy City" or Portland with "Rose City". The Alamo is a rather single event that the city is known for. And in SA, there really isn't a lot of exciting stuff to replace it with.

I would've gone with the SA Lone Stars, that's what I voted for, as that really signifies the Alamo theme the best, as it was a stand to help give Texas it's independence.

Names and nitpicks aside, I'm looking forward to this project. I'm a huge football fan, and since I've signed up here I've seen some great football series.

Yeah my entry was Alamo FC, partially because of the fact San Antonio isn't referred to as that and partially because I didn't want an overkill of "City" monikers.

Great point. If I were ThePeam, I'd reserve those titles for a few select teams that get referred to by that name on a frequent basis. "Alamo City" just isn't associated enough with SA for me to be cool with it. It's a bit of a stretch if you ask me. And it's not like you're short of half-decent names there either.

Hey guys I'm not choosing the names you guys are. So if you have any problems don't blame me.

Emerald City SC/ nickname is Enclave.

Rose City FC- FC because SC is too mainstream in American soccer.

I really hope you are making a Portland joke with your "too mainstream" comment

Capital City

Philadelphia Brothers

Bluff City Blues

No more "City" teams will be added to the polls. (It's getting out of hand.)

Wait so Alamo City and Bluff City make the cut, and you cut out slam-dunks like "Rose City" and "Emerald City", man, this voting is beyond me.

I'd definitely add "Thorns FC" to Portland's list.

Thorns SC is safe to cross off my master list, right?

Crap Kevsim, I totally missed yours sorry.

I'm voting for the second Golden State SC, pretending it says Golden Gate SC. Could you fix that?

One of the poll choices should be Golden Gate SC. Golden State SC is on there twice...

Fixed. Thanks for noticing.

9/20 of my suggestions made it in! Can't wait to see the actual concepts now that the cities and names are down!
