Toronto FC


Admittedly, I've been asleep at the MLS switch.  Although I did write about our new Major League Soccer team once, I tend to zone out during Toronto FC updates because I quite simply don't care.

I don't care, but that doesn't mean I can't complain about them.  Today's complaint is at least a year late, but it's better late than never.  I don't understand why our nickname is Toronto FC.

I understand FC stands for Football Club, and it's a popular nickname in parts of the world where soccer is known as football, but here in Toronto we don't call soccer football.  We call football football, and it's a very different sport.

Is MLSE just trying to appeal to those who left their hearts overseas or are they pretending the other football doesn't exist?  Can there possibly be a market for professional soccer in this city?  Could I care any less?

I miss the Blizzard.
