Reposted from Rex Kramer:

Not sure I completely agree with the length of that suspension. This editorial explains why better than I can:

Not sure if a team in Las Vegas would work, then again.... it would make for a hell of a road trip.

Las Vegas is itching to get a professional team to call their own. A couple years back, I went for a weekend to Vegas with my friend. One night, I wore my FCD jersey and was approached by 3 different locals who all mentioned that Vegas might get an MLS team. I enjoyed having the conversations with them. They were all extremely excited to have something more than UNLV to call their own.

If they build a stadium, there would be NO other place to even consider hosting the All Star game again. Ever. You want an atmosphere around the All Star game, take it to Vegas. Done deal.

Don Garber at the Sports Facilities & Franchises Ticketing Symposium 2011

Quote :

Q: Next year MLS will welcome a team in Montreal, which
is the league’s 19th club. You have publicly said you support growth.
What markets appear best for growth?
Garber: We are focused on New York. It’s a big market.
The Cosmos have a great legacy and they have a great soccer history that
so far the Red Bulls have not been able to tap into. For the most part
Red Bulls fans come from New Jersey. The challenge for [the Cosmos] is
to build a stadium, and as we all know New York City is not the easiest
place to build. And we’ve put a high price on the 20th team. In 2007 we
were asking around $7 million, and last year [teams] sold for $40
million. This could be in the $75 to $100 million [range].

Q: Is the Wilpon family still a viable option for MLS given their recent negative press?
Garber: We have talked with [the Wilpons] about MLS.
They have a good situation when it comes to stadiums in the site around
Citi Field. Willets Point is one of the largest pieces of undeveloped
property in New York.

Q: It’s the elephant in the room. I have to ask you at
television ratings. The league has had growth in attendance but in TV it
has been relatively flat for the last three years. How do you grow
those numbers?
Garber: I had lunch with [an NHL friend] and we spoke
about their deal with NBC and Versus, and talked about our situation as a
challenge and an opportunity. We have to convert those fans who are
part of the global game. We are similar to the NHL; however they are not
competing with Russian hockey like we are competing with the Premier
League. We need a product to convert those fans, and we do it by having
good stories in local markets and better promotion. You think about what
has driven hockey, it was strong local teams that had great local TV
deals and passionate supporters. The soccer audience is big. Chelsea
versus Manchester United had 550,000 viewers this year.

Q: Kansas City will open a soccer specific stadium this
year that is branded with the Livestrong brand. Are you worried that
the brand may receive negative press given the [recent doping
allegations against Lance Armstrong]?
Garber: It is a beautiful facility, one of our best.
Think of a Midwest version of Red Bull arena. The ownership is great,
they are young, technical-minded guys. They think differently. I think
Livestrong was an innovative deal, and with the brand’s recognition in
the cancer fight, I think they can do well with that. Clearly they will
have something to manage if something does happen with Lance Armstrong.
We are hopeful they won’t have to.

Q: Will they have the ability to revisit the [naming rights deal] if there is an issue with Armstrong?
Garber: Yes. I hope they don’t. Lance Armstrong has been a great story for Americans.

Q: You worked at the NFL for 16 years, and you worked
alongside Roger Goodell. Did you ever envision him becoming the next
commissioner?
Garber: I didn't think it would be him. He was a guy of
few words and even in his mid 20's I don't think any of us thought he
would be in that role. But 10 years later I think it became very
apparent that [Goodell] could do it. He had great relationships with all
of the owners and he really understood the brand. And he's very well
spoken.

Q: How would you describe your leadership style.
Garber: I'm a walk-around-the-office type of guy. I try
to be very accessible. I encourage taking risks. I remember at other
jobs feeling like you were always looking over your shoulder, and that
is not my style. To me, you can't win in this game or get to where you
want to be by being pulled there. You have to be pushed there.
