What about READ THE INSTRUCTIONS do people not understand? it's very clear if you read them: "Includes teams named for a pair or group of states" new england = a group of states, carolina = a pair of states

it's a nickname for California, the point is that the team is attributed to a state or larger area as opposed to the city.

The teams in new york are named for the city of new york, there are other teams in the same state that are named for other cities (i.e buffalo) so I don't consider the new york teams to be named for the state. they are named for the city
