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

I dislike them because, in general, I like simple names. These contests seem to sprout stupid names.

WELCOME TO THE BOARD, LUKE.


Welcome indeed, after Bruce's negative review of the board I thought you would have avoided signing up.

As for the name, if Indy fans are happy with whatever they will be called and the club are easy points year in and year out, I don't care what they are named. *foggy memories of 7 goal thirsty thursday Blast game travels through matthews head*

I see what you did there.

There's not an invitation to a hive of scum and villainy I've turned down yet. Happy to be here.

"Welcome indeed, after Bruce's negative review of the board I thought you would have avoided signing up."

Just out of curiosity, where is this review?

I asked a question for the podcast about how newbies like me can get more involved in supporting Stars and the supporters' community.

As a long-time very casual soccer fan, who is apparently experiencing his mid-life crisis by becoming a much more serious soccer fan (better than abandoning my family and buying a sports car, no?), I will probably be asking a lot of dumb newbie questions.

I don't remember it being so much a negative review. Regardless, welcome and don't worry about dumb questions. we all love to talk about soccer and this team, that's why we're here day in and day out. so no matter how small the question I'm sure we can get 3 pages out of it.
