    They're playing in the north so the North will win (again)!

    Are you sure there was nothing in the press release about a team being moved? ;)

    Must say thank you to Hyundai for their sponsorship of the WUSA and this All-Star event.

    What is the surface at PGE?

    I believe you meant to say, "Mail it in, South. You had a better chance in the Blue-Gray football game."

    :p :D

    Portland will pack the house. Soccer City is just dying to have a WUSA expansion team. The West needs to balance the scales by adding a team in LA and another in Portland. If Portland can show WUSA by filling the place, it will definitely be in the running. Go South!

    LA would support a team. It is a soccer hot bed.
    Plus the weather will always be great and without any opressive humidity. What makes that stupid?

    It's called NexTurf. "NeXturf®'s design was carefully modeled after natural grass, and is extremely grass-like in appearance, texture, and performance. NeXturf® is a result of innovation through systematic product analysis, development, and experimentation. Scrutinized by independent testing experts and approved by professional football, soccer, and baseball players (from Atlanta, Philadelphia and Portland), NeXturf® is truly the playing surface the exceeds all expectations. Each component of the system is critical for overall product performance and quality."

    Maybe there needs to be an OFFICIAL WUSA Expansion Discussion thread. :D

    Maybe we need an WUSA expansion forum. :D

    I seriously doubt the league will expand next season.

    Anyone want to speculate as to WHY this match is being played a month after the championship match? I don't know...I just think that the warm fuzzy feeling of the 2002 season will be gone by the end of September. What they could have done is follow the NFL's Pro-Bowl lead and hold this match the week after FC2...preferably in Hawaii.

    I guess maybe one way to look at it is that several Gold Cup matches are being held to the north of Portland and this is a good tie-in?

    And how will the coach of each team be decided? Maybe they can coach by committee? Crow/Stone/McDermott/Jimmy for the south and well you get the idea.

    That would be interesting. A lot like a WWE death match. Should we allow them to be armed, clubs, knifes, brass knuckles, or some other equalizer?

    Can each pick a player off their team to act as a partner in the match?

    Would McDermott get a handicap due to being female? Or maybe the others should get one for the problem of being male?

    Should it be in cage or should we just turn them loose on the pitch?

    This could get FUN!!!

    To paraphrase George Carlin, "I believe the battle of the coaches (he said network stars) should be fought with guns."

    Pure speculation:
    The immediate following weekend is Labor Day weekend. The match would be guaranteed to disappear amongst the youth tourneys and family activities.

    Sept. 7-8: First weekend of college football.

    Sept. 14-15: "Tribute to a Champion" match in Boston and something near LA.

    Hence, Sept. 21st. Another 4 PM start going head to head with MLS again. :(

    Not the most flattering view of the announcement on Monday. :)

    Over here!
    How are the players going to be selected?

    So we now know all about the game itself: the format of the teams, the location of the game, the date and time of the game. Um...has anyone heard anything about how they're going to pick the players to be in the game? :confused: Most All-Star games have fan voting, so we might expect to see that. If so, isn't it about time to start that voting soon?

    Merging the treads seems like a reasonable solution to me. Threads merged. I'm sorry I wasn't here earlier, but these things really can wait a few hours. Thanks for posting the link, USAfanatic9.
