    "The incoming governor's plans would be a blow to the city of Harrison, which had worked for two years to build a $120 million soccer stadium next to the Passaic River.

    The latest plan for the stadium relied on $90 million in bonds from the Hudson County Improvement Authority, with the team contributing $30 million.

    But Codey said despite Harrison's continued efforts, the deal is now dead.

    "The county doesn't want to back these bonds," he said.

    Officials in Harrison did not return phone calls seeking comment. A MetroStars executive could not be reached for comment. The Jets also declined to comment."

    Quakes remain in place for another year! I'm glad the league settled this relatively early to give folks a chance to increase ticket sales again next year.

    Fingers crossed on Metros Stadium that situation is only temporarily FUBAR.

    The Metros Stadium has always been FUBAR, never temporarily...and it will continue to be so for years to come...

    Nick S.---I believe the unemployment office has phoned about your soon-to-be-claim for unemployment...problem is, you haven't worked for 5 years.

    Joselito Vaca is back with family in Bolivia. There's a brief Spanish-language interview, which makes it sound like that he'll be back in MLS next year, either with the MetroStars or Chivas.

    Also, his knee injury will keep him out of Bolivia's upcoming qualifier. (Jaime Moreno was called up but won't be playing either.)

    The Copa Libertadores idea sounds really intriguing from the viewpoint of increasing the competitiveness and respect for MLS, however I always get hung up on the massive distances that would be travelled with this sort of expansion. I know currently a couple of Mexican teams compete each year (to be 3 teams in 2005), but Washington, Chicago, New York, Boston, Columbus are significantly farther away than Mexico City, Guadelajara or even Los Angeles from South America.

    I'm not saying that would necessarily be a deal-breaker, but assuming there is a distance that would make this sort of travel for a series of games impractical, how far is too far?

    I mean, it would be one thing if we were able to schedule a road trip like basketball or baseball where you have a series of games over a period of time before you return home, but these would involve flying down for a series of individual games separated by at least a week in the middle of the MLS regular season. The only part of the tournament that would not have scheduling conflicts would be the first part of the group stages in February and March, which is MLS pre-season.

    Personally I think the obstacles are going to be too great and fundamental to overcome. My best hope is that whatever we're calling the CONCACAF club championship be increased in stature, and then have a home and home against the Libertadores champion instead of that Tokyo cluster-********** that nobody seems to really want to play anyway.

    MetroStars Planned for 2006 in Harrison , NJ
    NE --- Gillette Stadium opened in 2002
    RSL --- Planned for 2007 (no location announced yet)
    SJ --- Seeking new ownership and stadium
    NE and KC play in NFL stadiums. The other 10 teams will be in SSS by 2007, according to MLS.

    AEG may be sell some clubs. MLS want 14 teams by 2006 or 2007. SJ will stay for 2005 but moved to Texas by 2006.

    The article about the Santiago Bernabeito says that RSL will play 16 games a year there.

    Hey, we'll have playoffs and CONACACAF Champions Cup, too!

    Yes, I do know that I should not drop acid & take peyote until after 9 in the morning.
