I was listening to the radio, and apparently MLS doesn't want regional team names, they prefer city specific. It has something to do with future expansion. For instance, if they award a team to Raleigh, they don't want there to be confusion (I imagine for marketing purposes) if the Charlotte team lays claim to the entire Carolina region.
every team has idiots that want the backup to be the future. it rarely works out that way.
this fanbase is no different on that front.
treatment of Cam aside, the treatment of Allen is quite similar to most backups that win a game or two early.
