    They just finished tryouts, so I doubt it

    I can also confirm that the new '04, '05', and '06 teams that just had tryouts will be folding. Big money owners won't float the $800,000 being spent for the next couple years until MLS. they will now be charging $250 a month per player for the older three teams. They are going to finish this academy season which ends in May, then evaluate whether or not to keep the oldest age groups. Also a slight possibility that they move the three youngest age groups to Graham Smith's son Adam Smith at Elk Grove FC and then buy them back if they go MLS but U.S. Club unlikely to allow it. Upper management did not inform the coaches until just a week or two ago and a few have already left.

    Does this have anything to do with the new purchase agreement between WS and Nagle?

    So one our erstwhile opponents put a "name the team" poll up on their website. The results were predictable, of course...

    Question...with the NFL owners approving the Raiders move to Las Vegas today, does that make it more or less likely Miami Beckham United becomes Las Vegas Beckham United?

    I think it increases the odds for both Las Vegas, who now have a nice new stadium coming along, and San Diego, who now have a lower shot of the potential return of NFL disrupting it's stadium/development plans.
    Not sure this will have a critical impact on either City chances though, but bottomline for this thread is that two cities received a small, potentially difference making boost today. Sacramento was not aided by this move at all.
