MLS- Seattle Sounders

Cast your vote for the Seattle MLS team name (write-ins added to ballot)

If you want your say on what the name of the new MLS team in Seattle will be, now is your chance.

The Seattle MLS team’s website has opened voting on the team’s new name and, not only can you choose between Seattle FC, Seattle Alliance and Seattle Republic, but there is now word that voters can write in with suggestions. This mean voters can now choose to write in Seattle Sounders (or bitter Portland fans can write in with ‘Dirty Rats FC’, but I don’t think that will win).

Vote away people. Anybody can vote, though it appears season ticket holders will have their votes weighted more heavily than the general public vote.

I want to here some creative alternatives to the aforementioned team names. Let’s come up with some good ones.

Fire away!

    I think that the 3 choices are all jokes. No one wants FC. They did that choice so that fans could refer to them as the Sounders. Seattle really has 2 choices. Sounders or Emerald City. One has history, the other says “world class soccer team”. So have a real election with these two names. I like Emerald City FC.

    I just put in my vote: Seattle Sounders!

    There is just too much rich history and tradition to call them something else.

    The new owner of the MLS team used to own the Sounders and there is no indication that both teams will continue to exist. Thus, this is the first instance of a USL team being promoted to MLS. Let’s keep the name and have some appreciation for the history of soccer in this country.

    Buzz, I have sent out response emails but have not gotten to everybody. There are a lot of people to get to so cut me some slack.

    We don’t need new names. Sounders is just fine, thanks. Plus, it has history.

    “Seattle Starbucks” has a nice financial backing ring to it. Alternatively, “Seattle Roasters” might suffice.

    Seattle CEDARS – strong, majestic and proud!

    Headline writers dream (“Fire Singes Cedars”, “Quakes Topple Cedars”, etc.) and MLS rock/paper/scissors (Fire burns Cedars, Cedars dam Rapids, Rapids douse Fire).

    Seattle Vista…after their beautiful views and most popular local product.

    The Seattle Cleveland Rockers–since Drew Carey obviously came up with the other two names (Alliance, Republic)

    The Seattle Sea Mutiny–and use the same colors as Tampa Bay?

    hahaha, that’s pretty funny… its not fetishizing, the city’s named after the guy… Fetishizing would be if we called them the Seattle Golden Showers… Uhhh, at least I heard that’s what some fetish is called

    Anyway, Seattle Olympic? why, what does that mean, that sounds like some european/broken english name for a team. The teams not from athens. Olympic is the name of an inanimate object (the olympic mountains), that’s really not in the spirit of an athletic team. try, “Seattle Olympians”, or “Seattle Mountaineers” “or Seattle Hilltoppers” as seattle was built on seven hills and is surrounded by various major mountain ranges.

    1. “A.S. Seattle,” then wait three seconds until the new supporter group materializes out of thin air, “The A.S.S. Holes.”

    2. Inter VanaJam

    3. FC Don’tMoveHereIt’sAlreadyCrowded, but the “F” in “FC” stands for “flannel” instead of football: Flannel Club Seattle.

    4. Darth Vedder FC
