An appeal to fans who love tradition &history

Hi, from Seattle, to all Bluebird fans, from the Emerald City Supporters. The Seattle Sounders have 34 years of soccer history behind them, and are quite possibly the winningest team in Seattle sports history (they've won four league titles, four regular season titles, lost in the championship final 3 times, 2 conference titles, 5 division titles, and have only had 4 losing seasons in that time). The fans have picked this name by a resounding margin in several earlier polls (mlsinseattle.com, Seattle Times, Seattle PI, BigSoccer, ESPN, etc...), was the leader in focus groups, and was submitted to the MLS for approval. But the league rejected the name, suggesting instead names that had done much poorer in the focus groups. Fans have spent the last two weeks campaigning *hard*, and while we wish Seattle Sounders were a ballot option, it's not. BUT we got enough pressure placed on the league that a write-in option was included in the final ballot, which was a huge concession from them. We have support from the Seattle Times, The Post-Intelligencer, the Olympian, Soccer America, the LA Times, KJR, and more.

1. Go to the MLS In Seattle web site, www.mlsinseattle.com. Click on the "Vote" panel and go to the voting page. There, click on "If you have not placed a deposit — Vote Here." Enter your e-mail address, plus your name, etc., …

2. Next, you’ll get an e-mail message back from MLS In Seattle, mlsinseattle@votenet.com. (Note that the message could wind up in your "bulk" or "junk" e-mail folder depending on your settings.) CLICK on the VOTE NOW link in the message to go to the ballot web page. Click on the BALLOT tab to cast your vote (you may need to turn off your pop-up blocker to get to the ballot) …

3. On the ballot — PLEASE CHOOSE THE "Write-In" candidate option AND WRITE IN exactly SEATTLE SOUNDERS and click "Vote."

For EXTRA CREDIT, have your whole family vote with their individual e-mail addresses and even ask your friends to vote. It’s one vote per unique e-mail address.

Yahoo addresses are having issues, so please do not use them. Hotmail is sending the email to the junk mail folder, so look for it there.

Voting ends March 31st, at 11:59pm PDT (6:59am Greenwich Time)
