There have been threads before in the past about how Hartford, CT has a stadium and a deep pocketed prospective owner but is being blocked from pursing an expansion team by Bob Kraft's insistence that CT is part of his team's territory. Now I'm not sure that given the bigger cities like Philly that don't have a team that Hartford should be at the top of the expansion list. But after going to Rentschler Field for the first time yesterday for a UConn football game, I couldn't help but notice that the stadium would be absolutely perfect for MLS. If expansion in Hartford isn't in the cards, what if New England started playing some of their games there? Based on comments I've read, Gillette is a terrible soccer stadium. I know there is bad blood between the city of Hartford and Kraft, but really, with all these teams that don't have SS stadiums, its a real shame that a perfect one in one of the country's wealthiest metro areas sits vacant save for about 5 UConn football games.
