KC 2008 ???

What's up with KC?

With Arrowhead set to be renovated, they were due to be without a home for 2008, now it appears that it will be for 2009 as well; and there doesn't appear to be any reilef in site from the local politicians, so the question remain ... can KC survive?

It looks like they will be playing in a converted minor-minor league baseball park for the next two seasons, at least, with no relied in site, IMHO.

On FSC FFF, Onolfo said that the owners are committed to building a park and growing the game in KC, but how much longer can they wait on the powers-that-be who appears to have no interest in keeping the Wizards in KC ... St Louis beckons, IMHO.

It would not be a good move to relocate this side, but it would be worst if they were to fold.

This is worse then playing on field turf with the NFL lines... :thmbdown:


The only reason they had a team was because Lamar Hunt (KC Chiefs owner) was a big soccer fan. In all honesty a place like Philly or St. Louis would probably do a lot better job at supporting the Wizards.

... funding is approved, BUT !!! they still have hurdles to jump and blazing hoopes to traverse before this thing is set in stone ... remember Salt Lake and DC.

It is a GIANT step forward, but I would hold off on the celebrations 'till this deal is finalized; i's dotted and t's crossed.

This move sets up St. Louis as a definate site for furure expansion, IMHO. Another regional darby, like Houston & Dallas.
