Treat Angels in O.C. outfield as outsiders

The Angels vs. Anaheim saga is over at long last ["Anaheim absorbs its loss in Angels suit," Front page, Dec. 22]Personally, I believe that the Angels name change from the Anaheim Angels to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Jan. 3, 2005, was a slap in the face to the people of Orange County, and a despicable act by the Angels management. However, that act was not illegal, and the name change should have never been fought in court.

There is a way Anaheim and Orange County can still fight the name change outside of a courtroom where taxpayers' money won't be involved. They can do this simply by treating the Angels like a Los Angeles team. Treat them as though they are actually from the city of Los Angeles. Give the royal preferential treatment to the teams which still represent Anaheim and Orange County, including the minor league franchises. These are the Anaheim Ducks, the Anaheim Arsenal and the Orange County Flyers.

Personally, I think The Orange County Register gives far too much coverage to the Angels.
