Game day is getting closer and closer as FC Dallas continues to prep for New York.

Another call for this piece that ran yesterday on this site. We got to talk to a couple front office folks at the team to get their take on things like attendance, sellouts and more.
Injuries are already playing a big part of this season but now Mauro Diaz is back and hopefully 100% to go this week against the Red Bulls.

This was the big news that broke yesterday afternoon. While some folks will hate the idea of a team in the Motor City, I kind of love it. I know firsthand how good of a sports market Detroit is and their NPSL team is already well supported.
A little more on this story. Don Garber will also be in Detroit this week to go over the expansion plans and figure out what the next steps are for a team like this. Again, like I always say with expansion, money talks.
I'll say this after watching a couple of their last games. They're good but they're not great. I'd actually say they're on par with FCD right now.
Orlando City has had a decent start to this season but most would argue that it would be even better had a few calls gone their way in a couple of games.
Then you have Seattle, a team that should be good but isn't right now. I do wonder if this is just going to finally be the season that the Sounders fail to really get going and fail to make the playoffs.
It is rather crazy to think that MLS owns a rather large amount of web domains with FC in them. But this kind of thing happens a lot in big leagues now day and with large corporations. Heck, the last company I worked for would squat on potential client domains regularly.
