Default UPDATES on new MISL

If anyone has any information on the current status of the MISL and what it will look like when it returns, please post it here. Only serious inquiries please. Has anybody noticed the current MISL Website and that all of the information has been removed and only links to the current teams excluding the Monterrey LaRazza are now posted? Is this what I currently predicted; that the MISL will become an East Coast / Central adventure and leave the PASL-Pro to the West with some inter - league games? Only time will tell. Once more, only serious inquiries please; since this is a response to fans of indoor soccer. I too love the outdoor variety, but truly wish to know what is the truth about the indoor version, and this forum is the best source for all fans to get information since little to no news is on the newswires. Thank you.

There was this blurb in this morning's Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:
Wave awaits changes
The Milwaukee Wave was left without a league when the Major Indoor Soccer League ceased operations last month.

But Wave chief operating officer Michael Lafferty said the club was selling tickets, operating summer youth camps and waiting for a new structure to be announced within two to three weeks.

The MISL's official shutdown date is Friday. League owners, including Wave managing partner Charles Krause, then will be meeting to talk about a new structure for the 2008-'09 season, Lafferty said.

The Wave played 15 regular-season home games a year ago, in addition to three school-day exhibition games and one home playoff contest.
The Wave has played in Milwaukee since the 1984-'85 season, making it the longest-running pro soccer franchise in the country.

"I can't comment" on specifics of the re-organization, Lafferty said. "I'm excited with the framework of how this will be coming together."

Default Kixx

Based on this story about the closing of the Spectrum, it looks like the league is going to play a shorter schedule --only 16 games.

It certainly appears that Monterrey is gone after one year. My guess is that the league is trying to cut costs even further in order to attract new ownership. Stockton is still on the official MISL website, but it would seem they need another west coast team (or 2) to make that work.

Thumbs down Blast/Mariners in trouble??

Also, the Baltimore Blast may be in trouble as well. The City of Baltimore is proposing to build a new Arena (much needed), unfortunately the city is looking to build on the site of the current 1stMariner Arena. This would make the site unusable for at least 3 years. This would also affect the Baltimore Mariners of the AIFA.

The Cougars made their intentions clear months ago. There was no way they were coming back to the MISL with no other teams on the left coast. Now the question is whether the PASL will get its act together. Both leagues are bordering on joke status.
