Not can't. Won't. Even when Pele came here to play for the Cosmos, interest in soccer wasn't much more than minimal. This just isn't a soccer town, period.

That was then, this is now. I say move to Red Bulls to Newark,NJ and start another expansion team in NYC and name them the Cosmos.

Do you do any research before posting?

Red Bull Park which opens next season is in Harrison, NJ.

The owner of the prospective NYC2 team is the owner of the New York Mets and if they were granted a team, they would likely build the stadium near Shea.

The naming rights of the Cosmos is still owned by someone. They have said repeatedly that they will not give them up.

The MLS doesnt just place and move teams wherever they want. Owners own the teams and make those decisions.

To say nothing of the fact that even if all the other conditions were met, there's absolutely no way some new stadium is going up anywhere near Citifield (Shea's been torn down, you know).

From what I have read, if the Met's owner (I always forget his name) is granted a team, a stadium would be built near the Met's stadium.

I have never been to NY so I know nothing of that area but thats what has been reported. I dont know if they plan on tearing something down or what.

Whoever wrote that report is on drugs. Nothing of the sort is going to happen.

Still, wouldn't it make sense for NJ to have its own team and NYC have its own team?
