    Take your pic. It's reduced in choice given that I can only make 6 opitions to choose from.

    If you have one that's better, post it and let me know.

    Comments welcome as well.

    Sad

    It's a sad statement when there are only these few cities to choose from when talking about supporting soccer (and I have to assume you're talking national team given the choices you've given). Is no surprise that pro soccer is having problems given the lack of national team games being played here. The USMNT served as a showcase for their top flight talent (most of it MLS) and gave the sport some credibility with the fringes.

    WHY?!? WHY?!? why is Vancoucer more of a soccer hotbed than Toronto, which is a multicultural metropolis?
    I cannot figure this damn market of Toronto out.
    Although the only competive soccer now is the Lynx, and that might explain a lot of things.

    I think it has to do with Vancouver filling the stadium whenever Canada played there (unlike Toronto), with the Whitecaps drawing consistently more at the gate then any other Canadian team (although the Impact is tops this year) and having the most local media coverage and credibility.

    PS: 75 Southsiders travelled to Seattle for a game. Would fans of another team in another city do that as of tomorrow? Nope.
