After reading of the demise or demotion of a few more teams I'm going to put this over here for the masses. The USL needs to re-structure the professional leagues and find a way to make it viable. Drop the two leagues (A-league and PSL) and set up one league with seperate conferences. Maybe you keep the "A-League" name, sure why not. The problem is the Rochester of the league won't want to stoop so low, but without the stoop they could be left without anyone to play. They don't want to water down the league, but they just finished a season with Indiana, Cincinnati, Calgary and El Paso barely making it to the finish line. Northeast Division -------------------- Montreal Rochester Syracuse Western Mass Long Island Westchester New York New Hampshire New Jersey - If Connecticut comes in with anything that gives you 10 teams in that region. -- Mid Atlantic ------------ Richmond Charlotte No Va Royals Charleston Wilmington Atlanta Va Beach and you might be able to get Carolina back up, or maybe a strong PDL team could move up. Central ------ Milwaukee Minnesota Cincy (yeah I know) Indiana Pittsburgh Reading Toronto? and its getting thin, but maybe St Louis would want in. West ------- El Paso Utah San Diego Seattle Vancouver Calgary Edmonton California Portland Play inside your division home and away Play your conference opponents 6-8 games and you have something. That might make the league viable and with the opportunity for teams to have some stability. --- The league needs some national sponsors, and to date we have seen nothing of the sort. that's a different thread, but something that needs to be addressed. The league's marketing efforts are poor at best, they have no presence other than FSW and so much more needs to be done, but this is a start in the right direction. If they want to, pm me and I'll send you the address for the check for saving the league. -- Wish Kenn Tommash was here for this one.
