Sacramento in '14 and Rochester in '15 would probably beg to differ. They're both "independent".
They were affiliates. Sacramento with Portland/San Jose and Rochester with New England (unless they dropped that affiliation by 2015).
Fair, although I consider "affiliates" independent owned and operated teams. They just get some potential loan privileges (some of which don't see much benefit).
Sacramento definitely felt the loan privileges. 8 players from Portland and San Jose were on the team -- Jake Gleeson, Mike Fucito, Adam Jahn, Tommy Thompson, George Fochive, Alvas Powell, JJ Koval, and Steven Evans. All weren't with the team for the USL Cup, but that's a decent crop of players to help a first-year club out!
Don't know about Rochester's season. It's not like New England has had many players anyone would want to take. HA!
Congrats to Louisville City on winning USL Cup. I would've loved seeing OKC battle for the title, but it was a fun game and great finish nonetheless! Also, big props to the supporters for making the atmosphere one worthy of USL Cup! It was fantastic and helped give it the big-time feel the match deserved!
2018, here we come!

Orlando City appear to be on the brink of hiring a replacement for recently fired head coach Jason Kreis.
According to The Athletic, the Lions are nearing a deal with Louisville City boss James O’Connor to take over the struggling Eastern Conference side.
O’Connor has been at the USL’s Louisville City FC since 2015

Louisville City FC welcomed fans and local dignitaries as it broke ground on its new stadium in the Butchertown neighborhood
Though I support from afar, I proudly support my hometown club, Lou City, and I am equally as proud to see O'Connor make the leap to MLS. Given the links between the club and Orlando City, O'Connor is a natural fit. It made sense from the get-go once Jason Kreis was canned. Sad to see O'Connor go. I was really hoping he could stay on to defend the Title and open the new stadium. But it seemed inevitable O'Connor would find himself in MLS. He's one of the brightest coaches in America. With that said, I hope the Lou City brass continue the momentum of the club and hit a homerun with a new manager. The name that immediately popping into my head, if they wanted "local favor" would be Ken Lolla at U of L. He's taken U of L (much to the chagrin of this UK alumni) to unprecendented heights. His name was been attached to couple of assistant jobs in MLS and he seems ready to make a jump - if he wanted it. If that did happen I could see him bringing in Louisville native, current U of L assistant, and pro player John Michael Hayden as a righhand man.
Kentucky: Louisville stadium half way there
I was the first to be a nay-sayer when Louisville City was announced. I am still shocked they've rallied around the team (at times) and continue to exist.
Drove by the stadium for the first time on Sunday. Looks great! Can't wait to see it completed.
I'm going to be back home visiting Louisville in August, plan on catching a match, and checking on the progress of the stadium. My Dad has been going on and on about the stadium. I've promised myself I will be there for the first match in the stadium.
I drive by it everyday and it looks damn good. Will be very interesting to see where the club goes once the stadium is finished, they aren't playing in slugger anymore, and maybe will be making more money.
There is a "major" announcement at the new stadium site Monday afternoon. Presumably this will be to announce the stadium's naming rights deal.
Louisville City falls behind Swope Park 0-3 in the first half, then rattles off 8 unanswered goals to level the match before halftime and cruise to an 8-3 victory.
Barring a home playoff match - Louisville can still clinch the 4th seed with a win against Memphis, and both Tampa Bay and New York going winless in their final matches - George Davis IV has scored the final goal at Louisville Slugger Field.
Big news of Louisville City getting their academy going, by way of buying Kentucky Fire Juniors.
Hiring JOC back sure got things moving.
Adding a USL2 team:
18 sections are sold out, and fewer than 2,000 season tickets remain on the market. Louisville City FC hosts the Birmingham Legion on Saturday, April 11, in a nationally televised contest.
