  1. I honestly hate that the MLS isn't a premier league (sorry, bad pun) on the world stage, because of what you say here. There are SO many great players in the States, and it would be nice to be able to hold on to some of them for longer than 2-3 years. That being said, I do believe we're at a tipping point in the US, that depending on how the MLS performs, within 5-10 years, soccer could be knocking on the door of some of the larger sports. Will it ever replace any of the "Big 4"? Doubtful, but just being in the conversation, making SportsCenter HAVE to talk about the MLS, and just getting on t
  2. I'm curious to know if anyone has heard of an update on parking at the new stadium. I spoke with someone with the team on Saturday, and they said they'd let people know "soon". Whether that's tomorrow, or 6 months from now, who knows, but I didn't know if anyone in here has heard anything. The matches are drawing 20k+ for the most part, and combine that with the novelty of the new stadium, it could become a flustercluck real quick.
  3. I have a feeling, can't say for certain, that they likely oppose the project in the guise of opposing the name of the park area. The Facebook post I got this from made it sound as though the opposition came from the fact that it wasn't a public park, but was on private property. I don't want to speak for the family, but to me, anything that would bring attention to Mr. Edmondson would be good for his legacy, and could open the eyes of a new generation to his many works.
  4. Just saw on Facebook that there's a community meeting scheduled for Tuesday at the Midtown Hills Police precinct to show opposition to the project based on the W. E. Quarry. According to the flyer posted, the family never gave their approval to use his name for this project. Obviously, this likely won't change anything, but just thought I'd throw that out there.
  5. First, extra points for using "jackwagons". Second, I hope they don't make the chains too tight, they might break the pillars, and pull the buildings down themselves. Wait a minute...
  6. I've had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Ayre several times, as he was at the council meetings about the stadium, and being a Liverpool fan myself, he makes appearances at Party Fowl, where the official Supporter's Club meets, and I can say that he's an incredible guy to talk to, is very cordial, and I believe that he can make this work, whether behind the scenes, or getting his hands dirty. He has a great mind for the game, and while comparisons between the Premier League (or any European league for that matter) are far and few between, especially in the financial structure of the leagues, I thin
  7. I agree with you on pretty much every point. 2022 will be very telling as far as how big MLS has gotten in this country, as that is when a new TV deal would take hold. As I mentioned prior, there is a tremendous gap between European leagues, which while I don't have actual viewership numbers, is likely growing faster than the MLS, somply because those talented players that we see in the US often go to Europe for the money (Christian Pulisic), and that includes young MLS players (Miguel Almiron). This is obviously a tough task, as I know several people that won't watch MLS, simply because
  8. When I typed this out, I purposely tried to stay away from football, to avoid the whole "he just hates football" mindset. I do watch, though my interest isn't what it was in the past. That being said, the NFL, regardless of TV ratings, isn't as "powerful" as they were a few years ago, simply because football as a sport isn't as big as it was a few years ago. I hope you're right in that the MLS is screening these ownership groups, before just handing out teams. I maintain that the MLS, and perhaps I was hasty in saying they're the last great hope for soccer in America, but I do feel that the sp
  9. Let me preface this by saying I'm a HUGE supporter of Nashville SC, and a huge supporter of Nashville's entry into the MLS in 2020, going as far as having season tickets for next year. That said, I'm fearful for the future of the MLS, I certainly hope I'm wrong, but there's just some things that don't feel right about what the MLS is doing in regards to mass expansion. The MLS was started in 1996, because in order for the U.S. to host the 1994 World Cup, the nation had to have a top tier league. (i.e Premier League in England, La Liga in Spain, etc.) The league was always fighting irrelevance
  10. This is the problem in a number of cities, not the urban environment, not access to and from the city, not anything other than leaders that are out for themselves and their cronies. I had always heard negative things about Detroit growing up, and while some were deserved, no doubt, a lot of it stemmed from those in charge being corrupt. Yes, the decline of the auto industry had a LOT to do with it, but when you have mayor after mayor dipping into the city treasury to help themselves and those around them, you get what you have in Memphis and Detroit. Thankfully, each is slowly recovering, I ca
  11. Toronto, already jammed with towers is only building more. In this video, released just last week, the guy filming counted over 45 cranes in the downtown core, in addition to the 31 buildings of over 600 ft. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovaiZejy_pI&t=
  12. Just Googled the Municipal Auditorium, and while on the site it shows nothing for today, Google is showing another cheerleading competition this morning, so plan accordingly.
  13. If you'll allow me a space to rant, I'll move ahead, or if this should be in a particular thread, rather than its own, I apologize. It's been a while since I've posted on here, through rant, photo, or comment, but this one came to me at work today. It's about the near vitriolic hatred some around here have about the growth and development. On Facebook (yes, I know, the great bastion for free and open dialogue that it is) I'm a member of a couple of groups that discuss the history of the city, and for most of the time, it is indeed that, but too often, it turns into an indictment on the ci
  14. Thanks Ron. I also think 5th and Broad could be fun to watch from this vantage point as well, but you would definitely have a front row seat for the courthouse.
  15. The addition to the Library parking garage means it’s now open at the top, rather than the cavern that it once was. So of course I went up to take pics!
