  1. North American Pro Soccer 2017

    It's getting better: http://www.mystatesman.com/sports/soccer/crew-anthony-precourt-lays-out-case-for-mls-soccer-austin/iIgaOfMaFOBcoah5cV2chL/ And yes, we did think that Atlanta, Portland and Orlando would do well. They had the track record. No, not all games start at 7:30 at night. Seriously dude, you don't know that?

    The Crew do not own Huntington Park. I was floating the idea of them playing there
  3. North American Pro Soccer 2017

    I know that the Crew don't own the stadium and MLS doesn't like that but could the Crew play at Huntington Park? Guess it doesn't matter if the owner isn't interested.

    https://twitter.com/danpearlman/status/921057671805054976 I don't know how to embed a tweet here. Anyways, apparently people have been asking for a refund on their 2018 season seats in Columbus and the answer is "no".

    They once did. They won't again

    Well, there you go! That's interesting.

    I know it's not the point of the thread but...huh?

    That's the what.....how about the why? lol. Seriously, why would it not be a knight?!

    I was thinking a little more about this on my drive into work today. Besides for the fact that, with all the expansion teams coming in, there should be plenty of money for him to upgrade the stadium or build a new one what about these factors; I'm not sure how long the stadium sponsorship with Mapfre goes for but there must be a fee to break that, right? I do know that the Crew agreed to rent the land from the city until 2020 (or maybe it was 2022? I forget the year) Regardless, breaking that lease will cost money too. While I won't pretend to know what the costs would be how on earth does moving the team make any sense economically? Plus, isn't Austin (and I don't pretend to know anything about Austin) a very similar city in the fact that it's a university town that has a huge football following? Aren't they similar in population size too? Last I checked the minor league soccer teams didn't have much success in Austin either. This all sounds like I'm dumping on Austin and I don't mean to, I'm sure it's a nice city but I just am failing to see any advantage. /end rant

    @MJWalker45 @tutorhunky I don't recall it being in the middle of no where but I also can't claim to know that much about Columbus. I've only been once (for that game) and I know nothing about the transit. If it is too far away and that is keeping fans away then I guess that needs to be addressed. I guess I could ask questions all day but it doesn't really matter the current owner seems hell bent on moving the team so that is probably what will happen.
  11. I love that you built that in from the get go by the way. Just one of those little things that makes this project so cool

    Theoretically, it could be changed again to add more suits? I mean, if the stage thing isn't bringing in revenue wouldn't that be a solution? I've been there once. Probably 8 years ago now. Yes, it was pretty bare bones but it also looked like it wouldn't be that hard to make changes. If you take out the stage and the seats on either side of the stage on that end maybe you could have 3 or 4 suits across? Maybe make a couple levels. Maybe it's just that I've seen BMO go through like 5 changes or maybe I'm over-simplifying it (heck, I'm no engineer)...It just seems like there has to be a better solution.

    If I recall, there was a list of cities that were considered and season seat deposits were offered. Columbus sold them out the fastest or had the most sold....I don't recall exactly but it was this unexpected positive response to the point that it was kind of a no-brainer. (I stand to be corrected on the specifics) I agree with most here, seems very sketchy. Columbus isn't even the club with attendance issues in this league. My understanding is that FC Dallas and Colorado are the clubs with the lowest attendance. I know they've had issues in Chicago too but I think that changed this year. This was just a big shock to hear. What I keep wondering is what would it take to upgrade Mapre? It can't be more than building a new building of the same approximate size in another city.

    Yeah, I remember voting on that one I think you are correct, I can't picture anything other than Wings winning.
  15. NLL Expansion 2018

    Well, Philly has announced the top 3 names for their team and are asking for people to vote on them: -Fire -Founders -Wings There's no way that Wings doesn't win, right? http://phillylax2018.wpengine.com/team-naming-contest/?mi_u=423341250
