Re: Official 2009 Des Moines MENACE Post-Season Thread I have heard that about PHX moving to KC a while back but I thought it fell through. I hope it didn't. I also thought Travis said that the NY Islanders may come to the midwest. They probably should, what they're doing now aint working. What did the FO expect when they hold a press conference about making an announcement regarding "the future of the organization"? I think we all knew a coach was going to be announced but I felt like they lead us on to believe it was something more. Give us at least a new location or something. (i.e. Raccoon River Soccer Complex...? Build a small stadium out there. It's still in West Des Moines and its not Valley...Just a thought.) Are they afraid people won't show if we move to a pro league? Yeah, the cost will increase but the revenues will offset that (in my semi-educated opinion). Hell, only half the people on this board attend games regularly, but I bet if we were D1, that'd change. For US games on several occasions we packed bars with over 25-30 loud soccer fans on weekday afternoons. Only about 4 or 5 of the 30 attend Menace game. And there are pockets like that all over the city from what I hear. I don't think people realize what a great soccer community we have. If we had a team to united behind, it be something special. I'd bet most of these soccer fans would show. Plus it'd be nice to have more fans to even out the ratio of fans to families who bring their kids just because their kids play in rec leagues but don't really follow the sport. Of course we need families but it'd be nice to have a more soccer intelligent crowd. I still have my fingers crossed that something bigger is in the works but I will definitely think twice before getting my hopes up and speeding out to a press conference. Anyway, so who's going to the Drake game?
