    It has ignited a pretty healthy debate, Prime. I think the premise is interesting, though I don't see them doing a race and a soccer match at the same time. Two words: lung cancer.

    Idaho might be a perfect place for sub-MLS soccer, and could be a lynchpin market for a revamped USL Pro western division if they had the cojones to try it. All they have in the summer is short-season A ball.

    I checked it out on Google Earth. The track could pull off a 105mx68m field.

    Awesome, love to hear that they might put down turf since they are worried about soccer's impact on the baseball surface. Great way to start. :(

    Like the idea of another PDL team owned by a sports team though.

    Slightly surprising since PDL teams only play 8 home games (and maybe a few playoff games?).

    I wonder how much of an impact the Sporting KC Wizards games had on that minor league park they were playing in last year.

    If they did manage to build a new baseball stadium downtown, do you think they could do a soccer team with a stadium at the current Memorial Stadium site?
