That guy is optimistic, but he's also a fool. Rockford metro area has the state's highest unemployment rate at 14.8%. Nobody has the money to go buy food, let alone soccer tickets.

30 AHL Teams?

Since the AHL absorbed the IHL teams years ago, it was presumed the league's goal was to expand to 30 teams, one AHL team for each NHL club. They're up to 29, but where's the 30th team supposed to go?
