Article Posting Guidelines are spelled out here. Thanks
Announcement: After 15 years of life, these boards have dwindled to a place for a mere handful of folks to post links and have the rare discussion. Having born the financial burden for both the hosting and the software for that same 15 year period, and just not having the time anymore for this effort, I have decided to shutdown these boards at the end of the USL & NASL season later this Fall. It has truly been a blast to have been part of growing a nation-wide fanbase thru internet interaction, that in 1999 was slim or non-existent for the Lower Divisions of Soccer. That has all changed and for the better. Fan support around the country is nothing like what it was when I started this, so from that perspective, I feel I accomplished my small part in contributing to growing that connection into what it is today. Thanks for everyone's support over the years, and especially for all the friendships across the country that Vicki and I have so enjoyed (and still do) over the years. Thanks !! Dan Barnes

If I were a betting man I'd put my money on Racing. It does actually fit pretty well and isn't lame. Racing Indianapolis or Racing Indy as they will be known. That seems to be the popular choice as the supporters group is named the Brickyard Battalion.

Sounds like the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has a problem with "Racing".

Quote:
James….and anyone else desiring Racing Indy or variations of it….please note that we received a message from the IMS this week letting us know they would need to protect their IP rights if the team pursued that name.

Unless the "IMS" being refered to there is your site BQ. If so, quit being a dick and let Indy have the name.

Hmmm. smile Yes, copywrite infringement. Hadn't thought of that. We are just plain running out of good names because everyone freaking owns something that is close to some name and threaten a law suit.

Copyright... well, in this case, trademark.

It's a bit of a stretch, but I imagine they have the legal power to cost the owners of the new team far too much money and trouble to be worth it.

How about Hooisers! I actually like "Racing Indy." I just hope they have a buckeyball on their shield.

Who cares what they name the club? We're just going to call it Indy for the Short Round tifos.

Indy already has 1000 reserved season tickets. If it wasn't already obvious, Peter Wilt is a friggin' pro. Missed their press conference, but lots of MLS people said they were jealous of it and their party was spectacular. Wall to wall.
And they're going to start work on their stadium ASAP.
