USL/NASL Discussions USLSoccer.com :: USLFans.com :: TheCup.us :: NASL.com | Links | Link to US !
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

You mean kind of like the Futbol Artist's Network only locally? If you haven't seen some of their work artist's have supplied, it's pretty cool stuff.

But, when you say poster show it reminds me of the tweets i saw about the sale Timbers Army did toward the end of the season, selling a lot of Diskin's left over posters

I always though a poster show about soccer would be a good gimmick. Kind of like ArtCrank, but soccer.
Yeah, Adam Turman hasn't drawn that same chick he draws kicking a ball yet, has he?

This is the most awesome back to back posts ever on this board.

I hear Adam Turman is working on a four part poster series based on the image of a soccer ball next to the Grain Belt Bridge in the pale moonlight and a hot chick straddling a bike.

gotta applaud Portland

What do you when you have a 96 percent renewal rate in your season tickets and 6,500 fans on your waiting list? If you're MLS's Portland Timbers, you extend your brand. Thorns FC, Portland's team in the new NWSL, has already taken more than 2,000 season-ticket deposits for its first season, putting it on course to smash the season mark for a women's pro team.

In 2001, the Washington Freedom with Mia Hamm reported having more than 3,000 season tickets for WUSA's first season.

WPS season-ticket sales for its first season in 2009 ranged from 1,583 for the Chicago Red Stars to 408 for the St. Louis Athletica.

Looks like the final Silverbacks logo has been chosen. Top of the NASL website has the Silverbacks poker chip in line with the other teams

And that's what happens when you crowd source design.

To me that crest screams baseball. Hate it, hate it, hate it.

I was just trying to think about the name/designs that were come up with by MLS without fan input....











Quality.
