2011: The Year of Change - a links post

Two teams are being added to MLS in 2011

Portland got a kit sponsor | I feel like it should be Horizon Air, because aren't they Alaska's little brother?

Vancouver announced their coach | This was a Teitur v. Yallop, and one was available. A great choice for our nothern brethern.

Will the USA, Canada and Mexico all have players counting as domestics next year? Is NAFTA really going to be that big of an influence on the sport? Will MLS use this rule as a way to help the Canadian teams overall, and help the league as well. It would also anger the FMF a bit, and that may be a plus too.

World Cup hosts will be known, and the USA passes 1 Million. If you haven't yet, please register your support for the USA an Seattle.

USSF Division Two will be in major flux as the NASL bid is in with 6 for-certains (minus Edmonton?) and 4 who-knows, and what about Austin, will Rochester stay in D2, or move to D3?

We'll know how good adding two officials actually does, as the Champions League will have tried it.

Will Versus become NBC Sports, and will MLS be on it? [correction made from earlier, thanks to readers who are also editors, because I missed it twice]

Oh, and tickets are on sale for the US Open Cup Final. Oct. 5 is time for Trophy #2 in the Sounders young history. Get your seats and watch the Rave Green win a title.
