Any legitimacy to this article out of Victoria? Josh Simpson looks to be involved. Also pretty much confirms Port City FC is out Surrey.

Been debated a lot in the Victoria thread

Valour FC for Winnipeg and Founders (maybe Forge) FC for Hamilton it looks like.

 

 

Okay now I'm curious about their sources. I had heard about "Forge FC" from an entirely different place, and Forge FC doesn't show up on the trademark search as far as I can tell...

Although I know Mr Grumpy Pants will point out it’s tentative and not official yet :)

That's irrelevant it's the fact it's all destined to fail that is important. 

Doomed I tells ye.

Thank god, that was the last big pre-launch thing I was worried about.

Now I just get to fret that these teams are all going to have only 500 people in the stands on opening day. :) 

I’m sure you’ll know more attendance wise in 60-90 days :)

Not sure if anyone has mentioned but.. Founders FC feels like an "Original 6" type marketing thing. Shirts, scarves etc with the "Founders FC" all the original teams. I doubt it's a team

I mentioned it before that it might be a motto, heard it suggested on Vocal Minority Pod like “all for one”. Most here assumed it’s  the name though

I thought it had something to do with Hamilton being in Ontario which was a founding province in Canada.

It could be something to do with the memberships? They've been talking about your memberships getting you access to league wide content... Could it be you are buying a membership to "Founders FC". So all the hardcore fans will be "Founders".

Boy I sure hope so. For a team name, it sucks.

...and might inspire paranoia in people in other cities over the level of influence the Hamilton team has on league decisions in a Rocco LoFranco and Toronto Italia in the NSL sort of way.

LOL, and I thought it was kinda playing on Hamilton's iron/steel making roots.

Terrible name for anything.  Heard it enough over the last year and it isn't growing on me one stitch.
