I suppose you have to start with teams who have been around a while. Shows commitment to and love of the game: Seattle Minnesota ...? Seattle Sounders ownership has been amazing. Outdrawn every year by Portland and Vancouver, playing in a 67,000 seat stadium and drawing 3,000 per match...the ownership remains loyal to Seattle soccer despite losing about half a million dollars ANNUALLY. The Sounders had the smarts to restructure themselves as a "non-profit" entity. Meaning that any profits, if ever, would go to forwarding youth soccer. So the owners can write off the half-million loss every year in their taxes. Since these guys are all millionaires, the Sounders serve both as a "nice thing to do for the community" and also a tax break. Meanwhile, as Seattle enters its 12th season...no one seems worried about survival, or even the fact that small crowds could spell doom. In fact, the few hardy fans up in the Emerald City are actually looking forward to 2006 as a possible MLS year. Thanks, Sounders owners!
