    Some stadia news: Detroits expansion bid will take a hit as the proposal to retrofit Ford Field with a retractable roof has now been scrapped. Meanwhile FC Cincinnati will begin to prepare the site for their new west end stadium in mid November as high school football season on the site is wrapping up. It will hold a groundbreaking ceremony in mid December with major construction to beginning in March, with a target opening date of March 2021.
  2. I say Orlando for multiple reasons. Whenever one of the startup leagues play, Orlando usually always has a team. Florida is a hotbed for football-high school, college, and pro. Orlando has also hosted the past two Pro Bowls with good numbers. I think Florida is big enough that it can handle 4 teams.
  3. The Raiders and Rams have long history and strong fanbase in Los Angeles. The Chargers played one year in LA prior to their move so virtually no history, or fanbase. Had it been the Raiders joining the Rams in LA I think the story may have been very different than what we are seeing with the Chargers. I dont think the Chargers should have left San Diego. Where could the Chargers go if they dont stay in LA? Depending on what happens with the stadium measures on the ballot for November they could have a chance to return to San Diego. With the Raiders going to Las Vegas, they could see about a new stadium in Oakland but the Coliseum is out of the question at this point. I dont think Sacramento would be strong enough to support an NFL team, but I know they tried to lure the Raiders I think in the late 80s/early 90s. Portland, San Antonio, or Orlando would be other options.

    Worst owners in Sports

    Mike Brown. I think football knowledge skipped his generation in the Brown family line.

    Report: Miami Marlins Getting New Logos for 2019

    The M reminds me too much of the Brewers. Better looking Marlin, liking the colors though
  7. Because the New York and Los Angeles markets are large enough that they can handle two teams. Thats why MLB, NFL, MLS, NBA have two clubs for those markets. The NHL has three in the New York market, which I honestly think is overkill but its working. Southern California has the Dodgers, and Angels and even the Padres about 2 and half hours away in San Diego. Putting a fourth club in SoCal would be oversaturation of the market. There are also other markets in the US and Canada that deserve and could support a MLB club than adding a third club to Los Angeles. The issue with Los Angeles in the NFL is that nobody in LA wanted the Chargers. They have embraced the Rams as they previously played in the market for years and they wanted the Raiders to return. Had the Raiders moved to LA instead of the Chargers both clubs would have thrived in LA and we could have seen the Chargers either stay in San Diego or head for Las Vegas.

    Syracuse Chiefs rebrand as Syracuse Mets

    This is a horrible logo. I like they changed to the Mets but slapping the wordmark across the state of New York and calling it a day is just lazy. I wouldve loved to see a logo involving Mr. Met or even the S or Mets wordmark in a roundel would have been better than this garbage.
  9. Not a chance. They're not gonna put a 3rd team in the LA market

    Nashville SC tied it in stopage time to take a win away from FC Cincinnati 3-3. Despite the draw FC Cincinnati now leaves the USL with another new record as the now own the record for consecutive games unbeaten. 23 games unbeaten since May 26th to end the season (Richmond started its first 22 games unbeaten in 2013). The regular season ends with a record of 23 wins 8 draws and only 3 losses, a goal differencial of 38 scoring 72 goals and giving up 34. We await games tomorrow to determine the seeding for the USL Cup playoffs. Cincinnati has the number one overall seed throughout.

    Austin FC

    Not yet. Precourt and Austin will more than likely get their team in the form of expansion. It just wont be the Crew moving to Austin.

    Pretty much has come full circle. If it wasnt for Art Modell moving the Browns to Baltimore creating the Modell Law that the state of Ohio used to sue MLS and the Crew, the team would likely have not had time to find current Browns owners to buy the team. Columbus is a split market between the Bengals and Browns but I think many have now become Browns fans thanks to this.

    Yeah Austin still would be getting a team but they likely wont start right away. At this point I think its more like who will start play first Austin or Miami?
