It is the off-season, slow news days, here goes.
The Montreal Impact kicked-off their first ever MLS home game this afternoon. While the Montreal Impact of the NASL was such a minor team, it is now in the MLS, the top of North American soccer pyramid. With its 19 teams in major cities (and expanding) and big-ticket names like David Beckham and Thierry Henri, I dare to say that the MLS is significantly bigger than the CFL.
What impact will the new Montreal Impact have on the Montreal Alouettes in terms of fan base? Last season was definitely not the one to be desired, with the team having difficulty to sell out the smallest - albeit the most expensive - venue in the CFL. Will the attendance get even worse with fans' budget now needs to be shared with the Impact?
