I dislike them because, in general, I like simple names. These contests seem to sprout stupid names.

WELCOME TO THE BOARD, LUKE.


Welcome indeed, after Bruce's negative review of the board I thought you would have avoided signing up.

As for the name, if Indy fans are happy with whatever they will be called and the club are easy points year in and year out, I don't care what they are named. *foggy memories of 7 goal thirsty thursday Blast game travels through matthews head*

I see what you did there.

There's not an invitation to a hive of scum and villainy I've turned down yet. Happy to be here.

Well, to start there is the NPSL team CD Aguiluchos USA and their brilliant logo.

"Welcome indeed, after Bruce's negative review of the board I thought you would have avoided signing up."

Just out of curiosity, where is this review?

I asked a question for the podcast about how newbies like me can get more involved in supporting Stars and the supporters' community.

As a long-time very casual soccer fan, who is apparently experiencing his mid-life crisis by becoming a much more serious soccer fan (better than abandoning my family and buying a sports car, no?), I will probably be asking a lot of dumb newbie questions.

I don't remember it being so much a negative review. Regardless, welcome and don't worry about dumb questions. we all love to talk about soccer and this team, that's why we're here day in and day out. so no matter how small the question I'm sure we can get 3 pages out of it.
