Seattle to get expansion MLS franchise

Quote
MLS spokesma Dan Courtemanche said Friday the team could start playing as soon as the spring of 2009. MLS seasons run from April into November, and it's likely the team will play at Qwest Field, at least initially.

The Sounders actually draw quite well here, well enough that they pack Memorial for a big weekend game.

So, we lose the NBA and get MLS. I'm thinking that's better than a fair trade.

Now if we could do just a little better than Junior Hockey (which I support, willingly) things would be good...

I've watched a bit of the Sounders once or twice.  GolTV I think. 

I'm thinking there's not much of a gap between the top of USL (Seattle) and the bottom of MLS (Salt Lake).  Well, there might be but you never know, RSL might get up to their level next season.  Wink

Just announced here as Paul Allen, the Sounders owner and somebody else.

I think I read the success of the local USL team weighed heavily in the decision, as well as a wealth of local talent to build on.

Fark!

Hard to compete with Paul Allen and hollywood I guess.  We had the backers, a pretty good plan for a stadium, and an agreement between all the local soccer organizations to come together for player development - but I guess the sure thing with Allen and Qwest Field was too much to pass up.

Tis a shame - we have a good soccer tradition in St. Louis and would have been good supporters of a team.  Cry
