"It's frustrating and continually surprising to me that such an authentic team that is so deeply embedded in this community, that has been a great partner in the District is struggling to get a stadium built. And yet we have teams that are being launched around the country that have had a much easier and faster path. I applaud Victor's patience and his willingness to continue to work through the process, but when you think about how great this could be, it's disappointing that we are going to have to wait so far for that true vision of the team to be realized."It sure is frustrating.
Seattle will have soccer specific stadium as will the new Philly franchise. Most of the teams in the league either have a soccer specific stadium or are further along in the process of getting one. That DC United, a four time MLS cup champion, one of consistently largest attendence clubs around can't get a stadium built is just ludicrous.
I personally hope that DC United heads to the burbs, although I kind of wish it would be close to my house.
