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.
