Much of the coverage and media discussion was done over the last few weeks after the original announcement an leading up to last night's vote. That basically ended this phase of the story. The next big media coverage will likely be when Jeff Cooper and/or MLS makes an official statement on the next steps towards awarding a team. The location question has been discussed to death and Jeff Cooper himself said he looked at several options on both sides of the river and this location worked out the best. The location is 10 minutes away from downtown. No one has issues going downtown to Cardinals, Rams, and Blues games, yet this is perceived as being a looooooong way to go for soccer, primarily because it sits in Illinois. Folks from South County will have an easier drive up I-255 than going through downtown. Some from North County will have the same option from the North using I-270 to I-255. And the Hwy 40 construction/closure is in my opinion is a non-issue. Hwy 40 is scheduled to be closed in stretches in 2008 and 2009 ONLY. The team hopes to start play in 2009, but it might be 2010 or later. So the worst case is traffic issues from West County for one season.
