Well it's probably good for the sport to see teams from different leagues play each other even if some players are rested as you say.

It's better than a total non-descript name like Toronto FC.  That's brutal.  About as much originality as an amoeba.
That is the actually the global standard. Unlike North American pro sports teams, soccer and other sports team grew from the local community club. So, if this happened in Toronto, the soccer team would have been TFC, the hockey team would be THC, the basketball team would be TBC etc.. Plus, we would seen 2 or 3 more Toronto clubs who would have the were with all to field Div 1 teams.

So, that leaves the nickname to be developed organically rather than driven by the flavour of the month corporate culture with the classic example being Raptors who came out with a cartoonish logo that doesn't have much ties to Toronto.

Ditto! Terrible name.
Yup, I agree. It just sounds so arrogant.

Not sure what you just said but Toronto FC still sounds as boring and dull and it gets.Remember though, I totally don't understand the sport of pro soccer and it's quirks and mannerisms.  Are you saying soccer teams like "organic" (whatever that means in a sport context, not a clue) non-descript names like Toronto FC?   :-\
