It take money to build championship caliber teams. Unfortunatley without the PSL (which I will be paying for several), boxes, etc.. we cannot get the talent we need to contend.

I have many fond memories of the stick but it is 50+ years old, the city does not maintain it and over the next few years before the new stadium is built things will only get worse.
Think about it, we have not had a night game for years so the city didn't bother IMO with worrying about if the lights would work or not so what happens an Epic embarressment for the team, the city and fans.
Its been great but its time to move on
the bsl's are going to help pay for the stadium and are not solely used for the football team. i do agree players prefer better conditions. since i like many season ticket holders don't live in the area,i'm not a big fan of the bsl's. played the saints last year on mon. night football
