What They're Saying: LAFC's Rich Orosco

"Our opportunity in L.A. is how do we tell the story differently. We're going to be big into music, art and fashion. The design aesthetic. We're going to be a great outlet for creativity. It's one of our club pillars."

-- Rich Orosco, the "head of marketing for culture and community" of Los Angeles FC, which will join MLS in 2018. (Los Angeles Times)

    If they are going to be so creative, maybe they could come up with a better name than Los Angeles FC.

    Unless they build a real youth academy now not 3 years and USL teams now they will be horrible. This looks like a mess waiting to happen.

    It's not hard to Build a Competitive Team in MLS, in the First Year...Especially In LA...Look at Orlando and NYFC...The Level of MLS Players is pretty Standard, as are their Prices...Plug in Ronaldo and a Few other Underwear Models and BINGO...Team-in-a Box.!!!

    thats funny, but if they want to get a fan base that is above 20k a match and any TV pull they really should not be lame. It would be a perfect partnership for a La Liga team to dump oldie but goodies to them.

    Casillas, Ramos, Xavi, Iniesta(soon)...etc..etc.. Get Zidane to Coach; Player-Coach.???..Hell he could probably Still Out Play 95% of the Players in MLS...as a Bonus, He could get Real Madrid to Loan us his Sons.

    Marketing guy better first understand the product ... Family Entertainment. The entertainment is on the field = uniquely creative winning soccer - as unique as the players / a style of play created just for them. Folks like it when their team is a winner and they like it when they can identify with their team - a sense of belonging to a group that is unique and entertaining ... as themselves. Now - get to brain storming ideas! (...and quit running up big tabs and calling them off sight strategy sessions!) hahaha
