Anaheim Angels Arte Moreno has announced his intent to chage the name of the Anaheim Angels to the Los Angeles Angels. Moreno's purpose is to broaden the appeal of the 2002 World Series winning team to more markets on television. Arte Moreno has been an awesome owner, and all of his changes have, up to now, been favorable, well received, and appreciated by the fans. So here's the problem: 1 - Disney agreed in 1996 to change the name from "California Angels" to "Anaheim Angels" in exchange for receiving $30 million in funds to renovate the stadium. That contract is still in force with anyone who purchased the team after Disney's ownership. 2 - Anahiem, and, more generally, Orange County, is no longer a "bastard stepchild" of Los Angeles County. The OC has its own unique identity, distinct and separate from LA. 3 - Fans don't want the name change. The OC board of Supervisors doesn't like the name change. The City of Anaheim is threatening legal action if Moreno goes through with the name change. There have been weekly protests by fans outside the stadium holding signs saying "Keep the name the same". Residents' vehicles display bumper stickers with the same slogan.
