When the league expands, Miami will be included.
He is a close friend of Ray Hudson's and was therefore verboten from writing about MLS at all during Ray's coaching tenure in South Florida. He's been writing the same column with a few words changed since the Fusion were contracted. It's getting old and tiresome, quite frankly.
He's also a guy with a close friendship with Ray Hudson and who happened to pull in an extra paycheck on the rare occasions that the Fusion had a televised game.
What exactly do you base this on other than unbridled optimism?
I don't blame MLS at all for contracting the Florida teams. Florida is the worst state in the country for supporting professional sports. These teams never would have been any bigger than the 10k a game they were getting. The dolphins don't even sellout. The two baseball teams will be contracted soon. MLS had no business going to miami to begin with. The onlt reason they even went there is because they had an I/O there. I feel sorry for the loyal 10k fans that went to the games there, but it wasnt enough. I would rather have seen MLS move the teams than contract them, but thats a whole other set of problems.
Not based on optimism, what do I care about whether Miami has a team.
It's his enthusiasm that's unbridled. His optimism is merely cockeyed.
(Seinfeld reference. Couldn't help myself.)
You just sounded so sure of yourself.
South Florida will have another team, only instead of the Fusion, it'll be the Del Boca Vista Phase Fours
Hello Mr. Horowitz. I'm suprised you have stayed away this long...but for your next post please don't use a sock puppet.
One of the larger myths perpetuated on Bigsoccer.
They've already sold out the Jets and Bears games this season, with two others getting close. The Dolphins do quite well, thank you.
However, the University of Miami saw their average attendance drop 11,000 a game last year, when they were winning the national championship. Go figure.
Not all true. Here is one factual error,
Preki, now 39, leads MLS in assists with eight in a second stint at Kansas City.
Here are the asist leaders through last weekends games,
1 Steve Ralston 15
2 Andy Williams 12
3 Carlos Valderrama 9
4 Preki 8
Dwayne DeRosario 8
He must of picked up that Preki was the leading primary assist man.
Nakeem, I think you shoud ease off on your use of the mind altering drugs. Now put down the crack pipe and back slowly away from the computer keyboard with your hands up clearly in view and do not make any sudden moves.
