FWIW, Precourt reportedly turned down $75 million for a 50% stake in the team from local business owners, so $100 million isn't going to force him out. As he evidently values the team at more than $150 million.

 

You're probably looking at a $200 million price tag. At least.

Yeah, the more I think about this with the expansion timing and all, he could look to get one of the cities that misses out on expansion to overpay.

That $75M deal was likely more about him not wanting partners then it was about the price.      Not sure how he could justify $200M, given the challenges in that market.     But if the league is going to basically flip it for $150M, it would make sense to expect something around that number.

I wish fans would organize boycotts of league sponsors and keep them going until the proposed move is killed. There is precedence for this: in the late 70's the Habs (who were owned by Molson) were singlehandedly blocking the WHA merger. Fans in QC, Edmonton and Winnipeg organized a gigantic boycott of Molson products. The Habs decided to give their blessing to the merger shortly thereafter.
Let's Go Buffalo!!!

Which specific sponsors?  You want people to trade in their AT&T phones?    Not wear Adidas?    Coke is going to suffer from the MLS fanbase drinking Pepsi?

I'm doing my part by boycotting Kuboto tractors.

I apparently don't support basically every single one of those sponsors already and I didn't even know it. I don't care if the Crew stay or move though so it wasn't for them.

So... do you boycott Coke because MLS, or support Coke because Monster?

Im not supporting any Southern New Hampshire University sports teams.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

I think this Austin thing is a bluff to get help for a new stadium in Cowlumbus. Austin is not Los Angeles.

Too bad we don't have a "discovery" on Austin. We could have gotten even with those Cow bast000s.
