    You know this whole thing is puzzling. I mean they have built a "waterfront arena" near the "port" in Stockton for starters. Someone help me here but my memory of Stockton isn't of beaches and waves. Hopefully theres a pretty big river gunning through town to have a "port".

    2ndly an arena built for an ECHL hockey team and an indoor soccer team doesn't sound exactly like an investors dream. Please don't get me wrong. An arena was built in Estero (Naples) Florida and Victoria BC for an ECHL team. I;ve never once heard of any arena in the US (or Canada) built for an indoor soccer team. NEVER.

    I just hope this works. Because if it all falls apart and they do end up playing in a warehouse like the article says I can't see people in California lining up around the block to watch and pay for the priviledge of watching double A hockey or indoor soccer in a warehouse.

    I mean I love indoor soccer but this is has the same warning signs and read lights flashing as the Edmonton Drillers owner trying to get the Drillers players to sell tix door to door because the real breadwinner in the family the Edmonton Oilers didn;t make the playoffs.

    The San Joaquin River is navigable by ocean liners into Stockton, which has a shipping port, . The local baseball team is the Stockton Ports.
