There's more talk out of Rose City about their expansion hopes, with real estate magnate Michael Keston named as the honcho behind the bid. Reading this Oregon Live piece, it all sounds pretty good until at the very end Keston is quoted as saying that Seattle's 65k seat monster Qwest Field would be a great place for an expansion team to play.
What year is it? Someone remind me. Is it 1996? No...2007, really? Then I guess Mr. Keston does not read the newspaper, use the internet, have good advisers, or has never spoken to anyone involved with the league other than a ticket sales rep. If he'd done any one of the following he would know that an enormodrome like Qwest is the exact opposite of the direction the league is moving in.
Take what you will from this article, but judging by Mr. Keston's apparent lack of familiarity on what the leagues goals are I wouldn't get too excited just yet.
