    i noticed that there are several fans of indoor soccer on myspace who have made pages for their teams....there is one for the MISL, Blast, Blast Cheerleaders, Kixx, Wave, and one for the Cougars (by a kid who never answers friend requests)...one of the Zinsy legion used to have one for the Steamers but has since taken it down...now my question is this:

    why haven't one of the STORM fans made a page yet??? c'mon you guys! you seem to be a very loyal group of fans, get on there and make a page complete with pics (especially when the season starts) and news and schedules (when released!) ...i was totally surprised not to find one! i thought you guys would already have the best one out there....

    myspace may indeed be trendy or whatever but there is no denying that it is a useful tool for informing people who are fans and those who might be potential fans..people surf other people's "friends" lists out of curiosity...you could meet up with other fans and at least do something (however small) to get the word out and help support the team (and league)...and it's fun...

    i urge fans of their teams to do what they can (even if it is something seemingly trivial as a myspace.com page)....i hate the feeling that i have in my stomach now that i know we have most likely lost our Steamers and i don't want any of you to have to feel the same...

    good luck in the upcoming season to all involved..

    My space can also be a space where very undesirable people hang out. I stress , I do not mean anyone in thie big soccer forum are not good people , but there is an element there that if you are not careful , you could get into trouble.
    My x girlfriend caught her daughter lying on my space about her age, she is only 13 and she said she was 22. I am sure tons of people lie like that and that is a forum in which I just will never particiapate.

    i understand what you are saying but what does that have to do with making an informative site about a team?? i'm NOT saying use it for dating possible minors...i'm talking about posting pics and schedules and game recaps...

    oh well..i'm not from chicago but maybe i'll make one for them just to feel connected to the game still

    I get your point too , but the sites are not restricted to just the subject matter of the site. If it can be done and kept strictly to Storm talk , it would be just fine.

    um...it's YOUR page...you control everything...you can delete any comments or people (actually you don't have to let them on in the first place)...heck you can set your preferences so that you have to approve everything that is posted...it's not like a messaging board or anything...

    well, I always thought Myspace was a buncha crud. The only kul thing about it is, my neighbor's site (damn it she is so fine), then someone informed me that Pornstars have their own pages (found that interesting), but this actually is good that people have team sites up.

    I guess I will need to initiate this storm page. We need to get any friggin crud we can get to put on this, atleast before I create the reignmen site(argh) But, I think this is a good idea.

    oh by the way. Since I was in the dells ive been drinking alot of BLATZ and ive gone to think it would be funny if baltimore would become the Baltimore Blatz. Just saying this cause you know milwaukee wont do it...maybe the millers.

    While we are recognizing fan sites on MySpace we should probably send kudos to some of the forerunners ...... fans who created and maintained actual web sites dedicated to their teams. Two come to mind.

    The Dallas Sidekicks Historical Archive by Alan Balthrop
    One of the most in-depth historical indoor soccer sites anywhere.


    St. Louis Steamers Unofficial Site by Jim Fossell
    A first-rate fan site. So good in fact that the Steamers hired Fossell to take over their official web site in 2004. He stopped updating the unofficial site in September of 2005, but much of the previous material is archived there.

    If anyone knows of any others, please recognize them here. These things are truly a labor of love for those who do them.

    Two of the pioneers of fan indoor soccer web sites were the unofficial St. Louis Ambush site, which no longer exists. I think it was by a guy named Jeff Lorentz.

    Another was Sidney Nusinov's unofficial WISL web site, which I can't find anymore, so I assume it no longer exists.

    Both are worthy of mention.

    It still exists on The Wayback Machine. I also had a Washington Warthogs site in 1996 and 1997.

    A really well-done site was Kevin Mitzel's de facto official NPSL site.
