Of course these proposals come and go, and this one hasn't even gotten off the ground, but it sounds like the best investment group we've seen here. And the Rams owner also owns Arsenal...there's a rumor that he may be involved in the Union Station operation, and that could bode well for a stadium in the years to come.
I'd be down with that. More midwest clubs would be good. Or southern clubs.

But what is MLS doing? Getting an even bigger boner for having a second club in New York, specifically the fact that they want it at Flushing Meadows and by 2016. F**k, with as many people in central Florida that want MLS back, they could probably be up and running by 2014 if they got an owner to make a successful expansion bid this year.


[sarcasm] Also, Flushing Meadows is in Queens. Why not Queens Park Rangers USA? QPR USA kinda just rolls off the tongue doesn't it? [/sarcasm]


EDIT: Good god, I just had a thought. I hope they aren't giving it until 2016 so the new Cosmos can get established in NASL only to get a bump to MLS because of their franchise name. NY Cosmos is easily recognizable in the international soccer market, but it's not always for good reasons (i.e. having a big hand in destroying the original NASL)

I'd love to see an MLS team in the southeast.
FL doesn't count.
I always thought North Carolina would be a good market.

Ha, doesn't count?

Well I know there's been a ton of interest in Atlanta.

White bird?

Chilliwack huh? Do they still put on the youth soccer tourney? the misses is from Chilliwack, used to visit all the time. Got my first and only case of Ecoli at Cultess Lake RV park. Did you guys lose your hockey team? Unfortunately, the only time I get up there these days is to be a palbearer. Canadians and their smokes.....

Cheers and welcome.

"Because they had two and both tanked about 11 years ago."

Florida isn't really a pro sports place, I think the NFL teams, at least one is thinking relocation.

I thought early on in MLS there were teams in Florida. Where did Valderama play?

I don't think NY can really support another team.

Yeah dude, they had two... you quoted my posted stating as such. Miami Fusion and Tampa Bay Mutiny. Valderrama played for the latter.
