    In other news, the NISA's Arizona team has moved from a junior college stadium to a high school stadium before ever playing a game at the junior college stadium.

    So it's going really, really well for this league. Georgia fails instantly and gets re-organized. Their somehow league champion moves to the NPSL. Any club they've ever had of any significance or wherewithal has moved to a better league. This has been a disaster from the jump.

    Still better than the new Arena Football League.

    Apologies for using the colloquial definition of professional rather than the NCAA definition.

    So NPSL, UPSL and NISA Nation define themselves as (semi) professional leagues.

    USL L2, formerly PDL, does not.

    Anothe way to think about it is NISA is an incubator?...
    It's just not a model that can succeed for lack of funds and some teams still not understanding you gotta put butts in seats.
    Fold NISA into NPSL as well as NISA Nation....Nation teams initially in a second tier, maintain NPSL regions, introduce pro/rel and we're on our way

    ===============
    All of these rules give me a headache and makes me really want to remove the NCAA from our soccer environment. If you want a degree and like to play soccer, go to college.
    If you want to be a professional footballer, get on teams or academies run by the teams and hope you have the talent to succeed.
    Its just one example our our soccer politics that keep us from becoming a soccer power.
    Too many divisions and professional leagues and one league throwing its weight around too much.
    Amateur leagues and such when they should be in a different set up
    All the colleges leagues- NCAA rules etc.
    Pay to play at the youth level when we should be just "letting them play"
    Kind of a mess. Not sure If and when it can get better.

    Minor pro leagues won't be able to survive on academy products. They will always be scouting NCAA at least for roster filler (unless you declare the college game outlaw due to the rule differences and tell NCAA players that their post-collegiate options are the MASL and rec soccer).

    -------------------
    Kind of makes me think of what MLS would have been like if we set up like baseball. Draft out of college or players you found elsewhere, players then to A>AA>AAA> the show. Or MLS version MLS-3 > MLS-2 > MLS-1 > MLS Premier.
    As baseball just proved, it costs lots of money to run a large farm system and they cut teams. Thus MLS can't probably afford to do it either.
