I completely agree, CONCACAF is a complete joke with only two competitive teams, and it artificially inflates the FIFA rankings of USA and Mexico giving people false hope in World Cups.

Better competition would yield better WC results in the future for Team USA .

It's like the more mainstream projects almost have to be seen using the more traditional types of visualisation. Has anyone else noticed that?
yes. which is why SLC had actual drawings, while most of the others are rendered.

Im glad MLS are getting their own soccer specific stadiums. I hate soccer being played in a large baseball stadium with a weird diamond-shaped seating arrangements. and i hate it being played in large football stadiums because the field dimensions dont meet requirements. soccer deserves to be played in small match box stadiums like in europe...

so kudos

but but but... i insist they change pizza hut stadium... that stadium sucks.

Is that the reason why the only way American's won agaisnt Canada in the Gold Cup was through garbage calls by the referee?

That's your own obviously biased opinion and doesn't deserve an argument.

Those are awesome. I especially like KC's idea, does that roof block the hot evening sun?

Chicago has had one for a while. KC and DC aren't for sure things, but I do hope they get done.

It is easy to label someone biased because of nationality, and insulting to say someone isn't capable of objectiveness because of it. If you don't think Canadians are capable of objectivity regarding that soccer game, I suggest you sample the opinions of soccer fans around the world who watched it.

Those that watched it almost universally accept that the Canadian goal should never have been waived off. Canada was robbed whether you want to admit it or not. It is you who has allowed bias to cloud your objectivity.

Horrible officiating costs teams wins all the time. It is excruciatingly frustrating to watch, but it happens, and will continue to happen. You just need to accept it, and move on. I've moved on, what I can't accept is such a blind assertion that the win was deserved. I played sports for many years, and would never ever want to win like that. The USA won, but their players will always know that they stole that one. At least the ones with an ounce of sportsmanship and integrity anyway.

Revolution’s the goal: Somerville talks stadium with Krafts

Thursday, August 2, 2007 - Updated: 08:18 AM EST

Somerville is emerging as a contender to land what could be the Boston area’s next big major league sports stadium.
Major League Soccer’s New England Revolution and Somerville officials have held preliminary discussions about building a 20,000-plus seat soccer stadium on a site not far from Charlestown, Mayor Joseph Curtatone confirmed.
The 100-acre tract of vacant lots, industrial buildings and rail lines off Innerbelt Road near Interstate 93 has long been targeted by Somerville for redevelopment.
The talks come roughly a year after the Revolution - part of the Kraft family’s sports and business empire that includes the New England Patriots [team stats] - began searching for a stadium site. Robert Kraft recently attended an event held by the Somerville mayor, though Curtatone contends the visit was unrelated to the stadium interest.


“We have had very preliminary inquiries and conversations,” Curtatone said. “It’s exciting to think that an organization like the New England Revolution and Kraft family would be interested in Somerville, but we are not surprised.”
A new Revs soccer stadium could have between 20,000 and 25,000 seats and cost anywhere from $50 million to $200 million to build, based on other new stadiums Major League Soccer has built around the country.
These stadiums are specifically designed for soccer, with fewer seats than big football stadiums, like Gillette Stadium, where the Revs play now.
They also often double as concert venues, one local sports executive says. With a central, urban location like Somerville, the Krafts would immediately become players in the local concert industry and a powerful competitor to the suburban Tweeter Center, which is not far from Gillette Stadium.
The Krafts’ interest in Somerville comes after inquiries in Boston as well.
A site in Roxbury targeted by City Hall for redevelopment - near the Ruggles T Station - was for a time considered by some local real estate executives and city officials to have potential as a stadium site. But City Hall recently awarded that tract of land to a nonprofit looking to build an arts complex.
Kraft family executives a few years ago also examined land at a Boston development site near Chinatown.
“We are still talking with a number of communities,” said Brian Bilello, the Revs’ chief operating officer. “Obviously Somerville is one of those communities.”

At this rate and with the state of the DC government and the DC United proposal DC United could be the last team in the league with an SSS.
I still think we'll beat out New England, though.

Probably will ^. NE has just began talks, and will not have a new stadium probably for minimum another 4-5 years.

Of course, when dealing with the DC government, 4-5 years is considered pretty fast, so it could be a race.
