\"My feeling is that we need it (possible MLS team name) to be something huge and new, and not have it just be that the (current) Sounders are adding four players and moving up to MLS. That\'s not to say there won\'t be a way to keep some of the tradition and refer to that nostalgia. But I\'m leaning toward a new brand.\"---Adrian Hanauer, June 2004. The Seattle Sounders have been the ONLY name in outdoor pro soccer in Seattle in the last 30 years. Generations have grown up supporting this team, this name. Proud supporters of the SOUNDERS ask you to join our cause of making the name SOUNDERS a part of Seattle\'s pro soccer future. Let the tradition live on!
