    Detroit City has released its "now play nice, kiddies" policies for the fans this year. First, I would like to say, "It's about time." There were too many times where I went home with throbbing headaces from the too-rowdy DCFC fans. (I mean that literaly having headaches; not figuratively or an exaggeration.) I have also said the same thing to team owners when I've seen them (at Oakland U games, etc.). Maybe they are listening to some of us fans. (Even ESPN Outside the Lines have had shows about rowdy fans at college basketball games, and some NFL fans say that that game-day atmosphere is not enjoyable. Same principles apply here.)

    The press-release seems to imply that the teams agreement with Detroit Schools to play at Cass Tech could be threatened if the fans got worse.

    Not sure if there is anything to discern from the "we want to be sustainable" and "to be here in 15 years" lines. (If I had a jaundiced view of this, I would wonder if he is taking a jab at the Bucks?) And another head-scratcher about having a full-time GM.

    Seriously?

    Maybe a youth baseball game is more your style.

    Lansing United’s bid to host the NPSL’s Midwest Region playoffs was accepted by the league today.
    The East Lansing Soccer Complex will be host to a four-team tournament including the three conference champions and a fourth wildcard team.
    “As an inaugural owner and playoff participant, Lansing United is excited to be able to host the Midwest Region playoffs,” owner Jeremy Sampson said. “This is an amazing opportunity for our fans to continue to see their team compete and a chance for soccer in Mid-Michigan to continue its growth. I would like to thank the city of East Lansing and Greater Lansing Sports Authority for assisting us in making this event possible in Mid-Michigan.”
    Lansing United (8-2-4) won the Great Lakes West Conference after a 2-2 tie against Detroit City F.C. on Sunday at DeMartin Stadium. United finished with 28 points, while Detroit City finished with 27 points after each gained an additional point Sunday afternoon. The Central Cnference champion Quad City Eagles (7-1-2) and Great Lakes East champions Fort Pitt Regiment (6-5-3) will represent their conferences. The Minnesota United Reserves (5-2-2) qualified as the wildcard team.
    The three-game tournament will take place on Saturday July 19 and Sunday July 20. Two semifinal games will take place on Saturday. Fort Pitt will face Quad City in the first semifinal at 4 p.m. Lansing United will meet Minnesota United Reserve in the second semifinal at 7:30 p.m.
    The winners of the two semifinal games will move on to a 5 p.m. final on Sunday. The winner will represent the Midwest Region against the winners of the South, West and Northeast Regions.
    Tickets will be $10 for admittance to both games Saturday or $10 for the final alone on Sunday. A $15 weekend pass, which allows access to all three games, will also be available. Children 12/under will be $7 per day or $10 for a weekend pass. Tickets will only be sold at the Stadium on game days.

    Five years later, Detroit City FC is one of the most exciting sports stories in a sports-crazy town. The semipro team, consisting of college players from the area and some older former pros, now sells out the stands at Cass Tech High School regularly for matches against regional teams like the Fort Pitt Regiment and the Erie Admirals of the National Premier Soccer League. Wright says the crowds of 3,500 are so consistent that there's a thought to moving to a larger home in nearby Hamtramck.

    Just curious is any of you were at the friendly between DCFC and "Columbus Crew College Program" whatever that is; if so if any players stood out to you or any other information.

    The DCFC fanbase seems EXTREMELY anti-MLS and the team ownership/FO wants NASL. If I was an investor trying to bring MLS to Detroit, I would rather start from scratch.

    I think ownership wants what is best for the club, fans too to some degree. If that's MLS then that's what it is.

    I don't think I've read the owners don't want MLS. But they can never reach it themselves. NASL is outside their reach without help.

    they need to get a move on.... they are only a quarter of the way ($100k to start) .. their owner says "time is ticking", so they need to get going... i hope they make it... it will be good for the community... obviously good for DCFC... although i support a rival team in the NPSL, DCFC is doing a lot of things right!!! them and Chattanooga have to be the flagships of NPSL... those 2 teams need a challenge cup
