Not what I'm reading, though none of the reading is easily comprehendable.

XSL will have Chicago, Detroit, Milwaukee, and New Jersey... and whomever else wants to climb on board. I think these are the single entity holdovers.

The rumor I hear is AISL teams either folding or going every which way, one to PASL, perhaps Rockford to a league with Baltimore, Philadelphia, Orlando, and, um, Monterrey?

Of course, Mr. Reeths offers that indoor is hurting. I'm just saying it's been that way for years, with the stragglers finally going nuclear about right now. The original MISL parlayed a couple gimmicks (one of which was the forerunner of the "game ops" most teams use these days) and the death of the NASL into success for a time. The stadia going up for MLS cements the likelihood that indoor will never see top talent again. From there, it probably needs to be a mid-market phenomenon or bust.

Might be homeless soon. Although Philadelphia has some alternatives. I don't see Rockford and Chicago going head to head.

Baltimore is done, the Blast won't have an arena to play in this time next year. So, don't count them in when discussing mergers. The Kixx are relocating to North Phily :eek :( the Apollo at Temple).

It may be best to cut expansion fees drastically and concentrate on a region. I agree that mid-size markets should be the priority. Allowing them into the game with lower fees would allow a league to regionalize and cut travel costs. Really, if an indoor soccer league would follow the indoor football model, it would be better off because in soccer you can play 2-3 games a weekend instead of just the one in football.

Ed Hale? please, have you ever wondered why his bank is offering such high rates on CD's? Because dude needs cash, he's the jack azz that financed all those empty condominium communities in the city. He can't afford to build an arena.

Where is Hale going to play? The Towson Center? Face it, his boy O'Malley just packed his shyt.
