I am all for this... as much as I dislike the "Angles," I am in complete agreement. In fact, I can say that my dislike for the Angels was solidified the day Arte Moreno added Los Angeles in front of the Angel name AND started those offensive "The A Team" and "L.A.'s Team" commercial spots.

Unfortunately, the reality is money... and I figure that Anaheim Stadium is under Moreno's thumb... they'll cave.

Anaheim better cave in before Arte Moreno decides to move the Angels out of Orange County altogether. Moreno is not a guy who can easily be intimidated. He fought vigorously in court so he can have the rights to call his team the L.A. Angels of Anaheim. Though, like Chris Berman, I prefer to call them the L.A./Anaheim/Irvine/San Juan Capistrano Angels. If Anaheim doesn't drop its threat, then it's possible that Moreno may move the team to L.A. for real.

Rob, if I were the Angels, I would have never wanted to be called the LA Angels of Anahiem. Everyone knows that the main team in LA is the Dodgers & always has been. Having LA in front of the Angels' makes the Angels sound like they are desperate & starved for attention. To me this also autimatically makes them sound like that "other team from LA". Kind of like the Clippers. Having the name Anahiem Angels, instead of the LA Angels of Anahiem makes it sound like that they have their own home & in my opinion seperates them from having that "little brother" syndrome that the Dodgers would have over them if they kept the LA Angels of Anahiem name. The Angels should seperate themelves from being attached to Los Angeles, because the Dodgers are already & always have been the baseball team of LA. If I were the Angels, I would want to establish my own separate identity. They could be that baseball team that resides separately between the city of Los Angeles & San Diego.

There was a credible backlash against this move whenever I went to an Angel game last year (well, I only went to three).

I, of course, always wore my Dodger hat... and, I would always tell the Angel fans that I was only wearing "our" teams logo. This didn't go over well, but -- in the end -- even I could get along with Angel fans who also hated the L.A. idea.

There were also a number of t-shirts and stickers that protested...
