St. Louis gets an MLS franchise. Along with it comes a (koff...koff) privately funded 20000 seat downtown facility. As for the name......is it "St. Louis FC? or FC St. Louis?"
I'm sure glad the XFL is having traditional sports names.....MLS is getting too generic.

Nope. Dragons I almost guarantee it.
I agree. The teaser logos can confirm that the Dragons are gonna be a team name (99% sure it's Seattle).
Maybe....but are Dragons a sea creature?
Serpents?

MLS has this bad habit of making all of its team names European knockoffs. They think it makes it more like the rest of the world when reality it just looks like a pale imitation. "Real Salt Lake?" I mean, come on. How many Spanish speakers are there in Utah, anyway?!

Names like Seattle Sounders, Chicago Fire... at least they have history and are connected to their home market in some way. But I'd prefer Miami Fusion over "Inter Miami CF" any day!

It doesn't. It's also a shitty name. Hope they came up with something else.
It won't be. HAMC is very protective of their trademarks... and of course, being an actual gang, they're not above less-than-subtle measures to enforce them.

These stills make me optimistic that we'll get a red/black look for DC after all:

Presumably from the video link I posted on the first page that the XFL released on Twitter today:
