Seattle to San Juan will be the longest road trip in all US sport. Vancouver to San Juan will be the longest road trip in all North American pro sports. Basically theres no bus games anymore for some teams. I really don't see this flying (no pun intended). I ran these numbers through travelocity. Vanc - San Juan 754 US Seattle - San Juan 459 US Seattle - Montreal 500 US Rochester - Portland 440 US Minneapolis - Norfolk Va 246 US Don't get me wrong, I love soccer and I love the a-league even more than MLS. But this is a killer. You times that by 16 (at a bare bones minimum) throw in 9 hotel rooms, and dinner and thats big attendance you need to be drawing. I think the bank manager will be re-thinking this a lot sooner than the league will. We cannot afford to lose another team, but I don't see a lot of investors looking at this business model and saying 'I can make a go of it'. This is shaping up to the old saying. You want to make a small fortune? Start with a large fortune and buy an A-league team.
