So, yeah, go read this ... MLS Territorial Rights and What They Mean for Sacramento Republic FC We've had a number of discussions on this board about the 75 mile radius. If (and I emphasize if) the Quakes actually now have (or have always had) 100 miles -- well, that's a wrinkle. -- I don't think this is anything that will really upset SRFC's MLS bid. But San Jose might have to be compensated more greatly than we were assuming. Then again, if MLS wants SRFC (and I think they do), MLS will find a way to make it work, and San Jose will have to accept that. It's not like this hasn't been an issue before. MLS has already brought two teams into existing MLS markets. Heck, maybe you let San Jose keep the 100 mile radius (perhaps only carving out Sacramento's city limits), but you give SRFC 100 miles as well, which lets them encroach upon San Jose's territory. Indeed, I like that idea quite a bit. Make the teams compete for youth talent.
