If California does succeed is leaving the USA and becoming its own country (Calexit is the name of the movement, which is gaining considerable steam)......well......lmao.......what would their Starting 11 look like?

Who would coach their Californian National Team (CNT)?

When would they host a World Cup?

Starting 11:

--Zardes-Wondo
Lleget-Klejstan--Arriola
---Larentowicz
Bornstein-Birmbaum-Orozco- Beltran
----Bingham

Coach: Landon Donovan!

Year They Host a World Cup: 2030 because they do have the infrastructure and the stadiums after all.

Can throw Corona, Roldan and Gooch in there too, I believe. I imagine some states maybe have never been represented on the USMNT? Would be interested to see stats on USMNT participation by state of origin. I think Justin Mapp may have been the first from Mississippi, for example.

Not sure if this is a joke but the guy who tried pushing it went back to Russia.

It's much bigger than one person. Here is a recent article on the current status of Calexit (still in its early stages, but it is gaining in popularity and media coverage).

a January poll from Reuters showed 32 percent of Californians would back a break from the U.S.

That's less than 50.1 besides the fact that this has happened in US history. It isn't going to happen no matter what. Texas has talked about for 150 years. It's fine if you want to put together a California XI but it's a pipe dream at best.

I hope Calexit actually happens. If they succeed in breaking away I hope they take Oregon & Washington State with them. We'll get rid of a huge # of cry-babies all at once.

There's a better chance of Jefferson becoming a state.

Good luck with that !

California couldn't even afford to fix the oroville dam when it broke apart 8 months ago

If anything we need to freeze all immigration and get rid of Puerto Rico as a territory..... trifling ass country

I'll stay out of the political stuff here, but I have always thought it would be interesting to have a "State of Origin" tournament with players representing their various states. Maybe not every year but every few years. You'd have some real minnows with the states that produce barely any pros, it would be interesting and different.

Why, because we're not a bunch of racist morons? Oregon and Washington are like 20 years ahead of the rest of America. Everyone in the entire world is laughing at Trumpland. Laughing. Does that not bother you people at least a little bit? The Bush years were bad enough, but this is a new level. Amusement, fear, and disgust are the emotions that Trump provokes in any remotely rational human being. You would think that it would be a wakeup call if 99% of the world's population thought someone was an idiot (63 million people voted for him, which is less than 1% of the world's population...and living abroad, I can tell you for certain that everyone outside of the US is still in shock that he could win an election).

Obama was god awful, but at least he sounded halfway intelligent when he spoke. Trump is literally a walking SNL skit. It's to the point where the comedians don't know what to do, because all you need to do to make people laugh is show clips of him talking. His own speech is that bad. Any sane, rational person would elect a leader that doesn't embarrass himself every time he speaks, someone who doesn't constantly provide material for comedy shows, but a lot of Americans love every second of it. Because he's "politically incorrect." And then we wonder why we have such a bad reputation.

Texas, Florida, New Jersey all have some good players... while my boys from Illinois are also better than people think. The youth teams in Georgia these days aren't half bad either.

Back to the Calexit team...the players would have to apply for a one time switch with FIFA...and you assume they would want to.

I would assume the obvious choice would be JK for manager

...and your stadium infrastructure is on shaky ground.

Stadiums not there? I mean why can't we use the soccer stadiums and NFL stadiums for their national team games? There aren't enough of them?

And I thought about JK for manager, but I figured that LD was a bigger cali hero.

My stadium reference was supposed to be a subtle joke about earthquakes
