Oh my! Now that's a heavy load to carry and the weight on my shoulders intense.  I thank you for your vote of confidence and support.  With lots of hard work, and the emerging Crocketteers on our side who will deliver a loud voice to the world, anything is possible for those who have faith, real faith.

God knows I love this game FOOTBALL. FUTBOL. SOCCER.  Grin

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                 NOVEMBER 30, 2009

 

ROCHESTER RHINOS JOIN NEW NASL

 (Rochester, NY)… The Rochester Rhinos today announced they have officially joined the North American Soccer League (NASL).

“We evaluated the situation very carefully and decided that the best decision for the future of the Rhinos and soccer in Rochester was for us to join the new NASL,” said Rhinos CEO Rob Clark. “Soccer is maturing before our very eyes.  We are joining a family of team owners who are committed to investing in our league and their teams to further the development of players and support the future growth of the sport in North America.  The NASL is a new beginning for soccer in Rochester.”

The addition of Rochester brings the NASL to ten teams, including the Atlanta Silverbacks, Carolina RailHawks, Crystal Palace Baltimore, Miami FC Blues, Minnesota Thunder, Montreal Impact, St. Louis United, Tampa Bay Rowdies and Vancouver Whitecaps.

“I’m looking forward to working with my fellow owners in the coming weeks to hire a Commissioner, create a 2010 schedule and finalize league marketing initiatives,” concluded Clark.

The NASL has applied for USSF Division II status and expects to start its first season as a Division II professional soccer league in April 2010.

Does NASL have more teams than USL-1 now? 10 teams (NASL) > 5 teams (USL-1)

That's probably what will happen, it won't make those who haven't jumped ship happy, a demotion they don't deserve.

Edmonton in NASL 2011....

http://www.canada.com/sports/Edmonton+lined+soccer+franchise/2289284/story.html

Quote
Professional soccer is expected to venture into Edmonton in the spring of 2011.

An announcement likely will be made some time this week that a local franchise will replace the Vancouver Whitecaps in a revived North American Soccer League.

The team, expected to take on the name of the former North American Professional Soccer League's Drillers, will replace the Whitecaps, who will join the new venture in 2010 but will shift the following year to the top-tier Major League Soccer, which includes the likes of Toronto FC.

Edmonton is expected to join forces with sides from Baltimore, Carolina, St. Louis, Atlanta, Miami and Tampa Bay in a new second-tier NASL.

The original NASL operated from 1967 through 1984. The Drillers were in the NASL from 1979-82.

Mel Kowalchuk, who was behind a friendly match between Everton of the English Premier League and Argentina's River Plate in Edmonton this past summer that drew less than 16,000 fans, is believed to be a key member of the organization's front office, likely as general manager.

Scratch another USL-1 team out.... http://internationalsoccernetwork.com/blog/?p=478

Quote
We have received information from multiple sources that the Cleveland City Stars have ceased operations and will not return to play professional soccer. This comes as quite a shock as positive news was heard yesterday.  There are lot of unanswered questions at this point, but it is safe to say that this is disappointing news for players, staff, and obviously supporters.

An official announcement from the City Stars organization is expected early next week.  We did not want to publish this information early, but thought it should be handled by a “soccer friendly” media outlet.



http://www.insidemnsoccer.com/2009/12/02/cleveland-city-stars-release-players-from-contracts/

Quote
Our acceptance of the USL’s termination of CCS means that all players are free of contractual obligation to our club.  Truth be told, this situation is not currently the exception to the rule.  Given the current turmoil amongst those who desire to operate the 1st division league in the US, every former USL-1 club finds itself in a similar situation to Cleveland City Stars.  No team is outside of the current turmoil and uncertainty.


so 4 USL-1 teams... including our future foes Austin Aztex

BigSoccer started a NASL forum... stating USL, NASL, USSF to meet this weekend.

I posted this on the board:

Hope to see San Antonio in NASL.

San Antonio Defenders (of the Alamo)

San Antonio Strikers

SASC (San Antonio Soccer Club)

SCSA (Soccer Club - San Antonio)

Personally I like Defenders and Alamo City FC.
