At some point in the off-season, though they did not announce it. They just said Kokalis was the new coach at the preseason presser. To be fair, they weren't THAT bad. The point seems to be that some of the handful of folks who care about the team liked the coach and apparently thought he got a raw deal. (Even though he had no pro coaching experience, the team inflated his resume a bit and, as you say, coaches get fired all the time.) Hasn't so far. You can find a more affordable house out in the sticks, too, if you don't mind more of a commute. But affordability can only go so far if people won't make the drive to Kissimmee. And they apparently won't. (The ballpark there is being redeveloped into a soccer stadium for Orlando City B, with various other fields, so maybe Osceola County can become a soccer destination, but it has not happened yet.) It's a rodeo arena, yeah? Size-wise, this is the type of place this league needs to be in. But it is out of the way, and...yeah, they have never shown an ability to market. Mesquite has had exactly two games and there were loads of empty seats at the first one. And Sonora used to draw way more. So either people don't know that (marketing) or it's location, yeah? Would love to hear your marketing plan. Don't know who you'd consult in this league, don't know who exactly has figured it out. And the only other Orlando circumstance was the Sharks 12 years ago, which did not go well, either. But Orlando had less of a soccer culture then than it does now, you would imagine you could out-do the Sharks. Dates are hugely important. What good does it do to get an affordable arena and get bad dates? Is it worth noting here that the Blast's attendance dropped five percent last year and they didn't sell out their home opener? Maybe Cedar Rapids!
