Article Posting Guidelines are spelled out here. Thanks
Announcement: After 15 years of life, these boards have dwindled to a place for a mere handful of folks to post links and have the rare discussion. Having born the financial burden for both the hosting and the software for that same 15 year period, and just not having the time anymore for this effort, I have decided to shutdown these boards at the end of the USL & NASL season later this Fall. It has truly been a blast to have been part of growing a nation-wide fanbase thru internet interaction, that in 1999 was slim or non-existent for the Lower Divisions of Soccer. That has all changed and for the better. Fan support around the country is nothing like what it was when I started this, so from that perspective, I feel I accomplished my small part in contributing to growing that connection into what it is today. Thanks for everyone's support over the years, and especially for all the friendships across the country that Vicki and I have so enjoyed (and still do) over the years. Thanks !! Dan Barnes

So the Vikings new stadium moves forward in the state capital this week, MLS in Minnesota is discussed at the capital, it's announced Pep is stepping down as the manager of Barca at the end of the season is it all a coincidence?

The senate tax committee hears it next. Not sure when (might even be today, but I haven't checked). It might be worth sending some notes to some legislators. http://www.senate.leg.state.mn.us/committees/committee_bio.php?cmte_id=1019

It's actually today at 3PM, so emailing probably won't do much good.

I read on Twitter that Manny is in line to be the next coach of Barca. This conflicts with reports that Manny will be the coach of the new MLS team that will be playing inside a fixed roof stadium with artificial grass and a beer dispensing exploading scoreboard.

The agreement to build a new Minnesota Vikings football stadium in Minneapolis features a key difference from the plan to build the project in Ramsey County and even from the Minnesota Twins' new Target Field.

Ramsey County officials said making a public stadium authority, rather than the Vikings, responsible for cost overruns was part of an attempt to lure the team back to Minneapolis. State officials "were under immense pressure to convince the Vikings to turn their attention" to Minneapolis, said Lee Mehrkens, Ramsey County's finance director.

He said that under Ramsey County's now-discarded stadium plan -- which also called for a public stadium authority -- the public's exposure on operating cost overruns would have been capped. In Minneapolis, the cap is on the Vikings' exposure.

...state officials have avoided a "long history" of mistakes public officials in other NFL cities have made...

Gotta admit that these fans make us soccer fans look really cool by comparison.

Speaker Zellers continues to show a lack of leadership. #Disgusted

Sounds like the Senate and House will be voting on their respective bills this weekend. Rumor is that they have the votes!
