    Re: Road Report from Seattle

    Three other MLS stadia has FieldTurf IIRC, and they would be Giants Stadium where RBNY plays, Gilette Stadium where the Revs are located and BMO Stadium, home of Toronto FC, and this is the last year of Giants Stadium as RBNY will move to Red Bull Park in 2010. Additionally, the proposed home of a Portland (OR) team - PGE Park - also has the surface and if they get a team (more than likely) that would be four franchises.

    Re: And one of the teams playing in 2011 is...

    I wonder who will get the two remaining spots...

    St. Louis?
    Montreal?
    NYC? (I wish)

    Portland / Seattle / Vancouver would represent a nice regional rivalry too.
    They could contest the "Flannel Darby"

    if someone had told me five years ago that MLS would potentially have THREE teams in the Pacific Northwest I would have called BS. Very cool development though.

    It has been going since the NASL - they call it the Cascadia Cup. Which is less words that the I hate this region so much I'm going to shoot my effing face off Cobain Cup.

    well i don't think portland is set in stone yet (is it?). so we're looking at one more team for 2011, then two for the 2012 season.

    too much expansion happening too quickly for my taste. shades of the NASL?

    I think four teams in two years is a bit much too, but maybe Garber is trying to kill the USL .

    Well if you kill off the USL then you can avoid the whole dilution argument, since you'd be able to steal their best players. Not that there are the greatest of talents in the USL, but still...

    Who will be the hero that makes the giant banner for our first Seattle game that reads,

    "Kurt Cobain killed himself so he wouldn't have to deal with Seattle anymore"

    I think we should establish some different name just to highlight the difference between people from the rest of the country "Canadians"... and people from British Columbia "Canadians who smoke tons of weed".
