    We used to chant that at him back in the day. Well, me and my friend Andy, anyway.

    Check out the Nashville SC webcam...
    Looks pretty far along and they've already got one wall of seats put in?

    Also held the shovel ceremony for their new training center in Antioch. Anyone seen renderings for that?

    =============
    The mere fact we have MLS teams building state of the art training facilities rather than renting or playing on some crappy field somewhere should be good enough seeing where we have come from. I think there are still a few teams out there that can use an upgrade...

    A setting?

    Would require throwing an extra twenty bucks at the photoshop guy.

    And check out the webcams for the stadium... How much effort and expense would it take to put up a decent 2nd camera, one that works most days? Seems like a few more bucks would help get more bang for their investment.

    I think Nashville is rightfully proud of their no-frills approach to the squad, but I wish their new stadium plan looked a little nicer, more plush and inviting/exciting. Remember when the city of Orlando went back to the plans and told City they had to make it less basic?

    Will see how their new stadium looks when it opens next year, then 10 or 15 years down the line. Nashville is touting the fact that it will be the largest SSS... and nothing will look much better or more inviting than a packed 30k SSS.

    Sure, you can dress it up in photoshop. The Crew's new stadium is next to a railroad wye. The triangle inside is a bare patch of dirt owned by a construction company and used for storage and parking for baseball games. But in the Crew's images, it's an urban forest.
