Anyone else listening?

Sounds like we have agreements with other players already, but can't announce.

Also - he says two new league sponsors beyond Heineken to be announced soon.

Says league isn't performing as well as he would like financially but neither he nor the players anticipate a work stoppage

Sounds like when the franchise was awarded, there was a stadium agreement in place that fell apart.

My only issue with that is freaking crazy travel involved. Imagine a copa libertadores where Vancouver travels to buenos aires midweek then travel all the way back to play New England for example, unless he wants mostly for copa Americas

Weather? What does he mean by that? Because it gets cold here? Yeah, because it's so warm in England and Germany in January.

It is very Impractical to have MLS on fall to spring schedule.

Other than having to compete with other American sports leagues, why?

But Garber blamed the weather, I want to know what he means exactly. If it's because it gets cold here, then that's just a lame excuse.
