    Good piece describing the three situations. As a former NY/NJ I have a lot of experience trying to explain to non NYers why a second team makes sense and can be successful. COMMUTING, COMMUTING, COMMUTING.

    Very interesting show this time. Nice to get a behind the scences on some of the situations around the league. We all really need to pull for Edmonton to get on board with the stadium issue. I think we all know at this point that having the right stadium situation is extremely vital at our level. And I hope Nick is right about the Cosmos FO being smart enough to get those lines removed or painted over at Hofstra. It would be nice to only have to live with seeing those lines in Edmonton on Strikers away broadcasts next year.

    Great show…

    I think every NASL team should strive to have a stadium like San Antonio will have, and every USL team to strive and have what Charleston Battery have.

    But as importantly, it is the “home of soccer in New York City right now,” according to Mark Abbott.

    “It is probably the most diverse community not just in New York City, not just the country, but arguably the world,” Abbott said. “So if you were to pick the ideal location for a soccer club in the world, it would be in Queens and it would be in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.”

    And before you heard it from Mark Abbott you heard it hear on this podcast from Nick Laveglia. Way to go Nick! 🙂
