So in Nigeria a bunch of teams were trying to lose on purpose likely because of a fix. The scores were 79-0 and 67-0

BBC Story here

One of the teams involves was Police Machine FC which I think has to be the coolest name for a club I've ever heard.

Police Machine FC and a fix going on? Doesnt seem logical in the slightest LOL.

Africa really has to settle all this corruption. Which is a tall task to say the least.

It is a cool name, I wish MLS would get the memo to name clubs with cool names!

Gotham City FC > NYCFC
SC Houston (Space city) > Houston Dynamo

Other franchises that need name changes: NE Revolution, Columbus Crew, FC Dallas, SJ Earthquakes, NY Red Bulls

I'm not crazy about our MLS teams going with names like (City Name) F.C., (City Name) United, Real (City Name), etc. I think its cheesy that we feel the need to copy language/usage characteristics of other parts of the world. If our teams perform as well as some of those well known teams, awesome. But there is nothing wrong with the American tradition of City Name and Mascot. I'm proud of what we've done in the totality of the American sports heritage. We should be ourselves and not someone else.

Between Egypt shutting down for a full season to this. Other than South Africa most of the other leagues are in big trouble.
