Rumor: Miami Wants Back in MLS


And they want to play in this proposed baseball stadium.

No. No. No. Not even for old times sake. You can read about it half way down the page here. I'm assuming there weren't Jai Alai facilities large enough to accommodate a pitch so this was the next best (or is it worst) thing.

What do you think? Would you be cool with an RFK redux or is the time for begging for a seat at someone else's table over?

Boo baseball. Boo Miami.

Screw that. I know it's kind of revolutionary, but...how about playing in a proposed soccer stadium?

Miami is a lousy sports market, especially in the summer. I hope that MLS will recognize that even before entertaining a shared stadium plan.

I agree with everything commented so far. However, two things... I've read a lot of interviews where latino players ask if there's an MLS franchise in Miami, because they want to play there. Plus, that's where Boca Juniors were rumored to be looking to make and MLS team, which could be really cool.

If the Fusion couldn't make it, they shouldn't let a franchise back in there unless the stadium is set in an area where there's a population wanting to see soccer. If Boca Juniors wants to put their team there, they should foot the bill to get the ground broken for a stadium there BEFORE the team starts playing. This country will not take the sport seriously if leadership at MLS doesn't, and keeps these teams in lousy playing conditions.

This will be aquaman's secret lair in the offseason, and the only thing that's going to happen in this joint is a seahorse race if Al Gore's right.

Down with investing any money what so ever in FLa. hey can't count votes, Cubans, or individual retirees claiming the dead spouses social security check.

Has anybody bothered to look at Miami FC's avg attendance in the USL-1? Roughly 860 per game (no, I didn't leave out a digit -- they are averaging well less than 1000 fans).

Miami should only get a franchise after Sioux City's bid falls through.

Victorm, it mentions it half-way down the Miami Herald article...the second link.

We don't need more stadiums like that. I'm a DC United guy, and I hate that we play on a baseball field. Baseball will always get precedence, and you're going to end up not having many weekend games because those spots are taken by the higher attended sport. I think MLS is in a position to hold out for a city that wants a SSS a shot.

DC United doesn't have that many weekend games. WTF? DC has as many league games on weekends and during the week as any other team in MLS as long as you overlook the following....

Getting the MLS Cup
Superliga
CONCACAF ChampionsCrap

Yeah, that's right folks, they have a fuckton of games to go to and many of those OTHER competitions that they've earned or (dare I say) been gifted the right to play in, are during the week. Same as they would be for any other team, at any other venue, in any other league, in any other country (including this one) on this fucking planet!!!!!

What a joke.


PS. The fans have a winning team, great atmosphere, FO support, and now non AEG ownership with an SSS on the horizon and they still find shit to whine about.


P.S.S. Let keep this on track. Down with any investment in FL.
