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."

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.

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.
