Starfire is a pain to get to for big-event days. No public transportation, parking is limited and there is only a two-lane bridge to get in and out of the place. And as the previous poster mentioned, there is nothing to do in the area to kill time or wait out the crowds (except for the pizza place inside the complex). But on clear sunny days there is hardly a better place to watch a soccer game than the stadium's main grandstands with Mt. Rainier in the distance. My opinion for why the WPS "succeeded' on the east coast and not out west is because of the concentration of cities along the eastern seaboard. Seattle only has Portland (and Vancouver north of the border) within reasonable driving distance, while the northeast has a bunch of cities clustered; New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, and many more.
