THE STARTING 11: Chivas USA re-brands

When he watches football... he likely doesn't watch Chivas USA

While we are no fans of changing team identities unless absolutely necessary (i.e. Sporting Kansas) sometimes you just have to admit things are stuck in the Roller Hockey era and need a different approach (i.e. Crew, Revolution, Rapids, Impact) While not lumbered with a 90's Nike-infused identity, Chivas USA were branded in a way that alienates Los Angeles football fans who have a built-in hatred for The Goats' parent club Chivas Guadalajara. Despite a history of mostly under-par performances on the pitch, it's in the stands, where attendance is thin at best, where the worry must lay. Could these changes in identity be enough to get fans down to Home Depot Center? When Galaxy isn't playing that is. Oh... and when it's not a school night.
