In case that wasn't an exclamatory/rhetorical question, it was 55K.

I'm 99% certain these would maintain the names Impact, Whitecaps and Timbers, respectively.

That's what happened to the Sounders. The owners wanted to change the name and didn't even include Sounders as their possible choice but left a write-in spot. Something like 60-70% of the ballots had Sounders written in.

As I have always said, when you think of Seattle soccer you think of Sounders soccer

An announcement will be made by March 19th.

Word is that Vancouver is pretty much a lock with either St. Louis or Portland getting the other bid.

Yeah, thats a great idea considering the current NY franchise has done so well.

In all seriousness, NY is in the lower portion in the league in attendance. They dont need a second franchise in NY anytime soon.
