Ok, I've hardly posted ANYTHING since the team has been moved. I'm so angry, I can hardly work up the energy to come on Big Soccer anymore. So here's my question. What were MLS' reasons for locating a franchise in San Jose as one of the "original" teams? From day one, I heard the stadium deal was a "bad one" for MLS. They didn't have an owner, so why would they decide to locate here? Because of geography? Previous history in NASL? The "youth" market looked so tempting? Sure, the fans wanted a team here, but what did MLS expect to happen? Did they think that someone would leverage their dot com company and buy the team? That they could strong arm Spartan shops into giving them a better deal? It just seemed like MLS threw up a prayer pass into a packed secondary hoping that someone would jump up and make the catch. Even if the fans would have some out in serious numbers when the team sucked, how would that have changed things? Would that have made the city decide to build a stadium? No.....Kraft and AEG might of lost less money, but they still would have lost money. I would just like to understand the logic of MLS' move.
