    Was there ever a doubt? I’m sure Portland will keep theirs as well. Heritage cup will be a 4-way competition next year. Very cool

  2. Don Ruiz says:

    There shouldn’t have been any doubt, but I think Vancouver worried some fans by not using the nickname in the release announcing their entry into MLS. I haven’t heard any similar uncertainty about Portland.

  3. Torcedor says:

    Couldn’t be happier about the logo re-design. We don’t need another San Jose-esque badge making our league look like a joke.
