I think StL moved to Spfld, then completed the season, THEN folded. Then StL got the new (or at least to the PDL) team, the Lions, waaaaay out in Cottleville, St. Charles County, a town which my Webster Groves (StL County) uncle hadn't even heard of. I havent heard any bad things about the Lions FO yet.
Honestly, even though I have no connection to Spfld., I'd love to see Spfld. get another team, if only because Mo. State U. is pretty well regarded, and it might be a good summer gig for a few of those kids.
