Something I was wondering since the MLS announced their affiliation program with the USL, who houses the players who are loaned? Does the parent club put them up in a hotel room? Does the feeder club do that? Do they stay with current players? Are they responsible for their own room and board?

My guess is they're still drawing a salary from the parent club, so they're on their own for housing.

7 MLS'ers named to the USMNT for the game vs Honduras. Not too bad since the MLS isn't a real professional league, so says the head of FIFA.

SKC and Sounders have the most representatives with 2 a piece

Well, we aren't qualifying for the World Cup. Not with that shit show. We made Honduras look like Argentina. No midfield. No defense. They just kept coming right down our throats. Meanwhile we're just lobbing hopeful balls most of the game. Totally fucking lost without Donovan. Pathetic. Especially liked how Omar Gonzalez stands there like an idiot when the ball comes loose in the box, staring at it instead of beating his man to it. Of course Cameron set that whole thing up with an amazing gaffe. How could they look so out of gas only 5 minutes into the game?

I should add that I didn't expect a win, but certainly a result shouldn't be asking too much, and we just looked like we deserved to lose by more.

Found this rather interesting...

Quote:
HB 219 - General Bill - by Nelson (CO-SPONSORS) Santiago

Professional Sports Franchises: Adds Major League Soccer (MLS) to meaning of term "league"; provides that previously certified applicant is not eligible for additional certification under certain circumstances; requires DEO to reserve two new facility certifications for new MLS Franchises.

Other corresponding "Sports Franchise" Bill... equally as compelling in scope

Meaning? MLS has to expand by 2 more teams before they're considered a league?

No.... it's parking 2 franchise licenses with DEO for future expansion

i.e. cat's out of the bag...

Read this first http://www.myfloridahouse.gov/Sectio...9&Session=2013

then the 2nd link above, then go back and read the first link. May help in clarifying

I'm assuming it has something to do with Rick Scott announcing he wants to use tax dollars to subsidize Orlando City building a new stadium.

So it says it will go into affect(if approved I assume?) on July 1st, 2013. So I'm guessing we'll hear about Orlando or some other Florida city being awarded an MLS expansion by the end of the summer?

The would probably join the league in 2015 after the agreement with SKC ends and the stadium should be completed by then.

I think that's a pretty safe bet.
