Another interesting article on this: http://fiftyfive.one/2016/12/sources-na ... -complete/

Of note, it looks like the Faths might get some of their money recouped as the B Shares are bought

So the team could be left without a viable league to play in. It sounds eerily similar to what happened to the Capitals.

Could be. Fath's stubbornness may be ultimately detrimental. We will see. If Rome is burning, Fath is doing the fiddling right now.

reminds me of the story of the 2 moms watching the big military parade and one says to the other "look there's my son" The woman asks "how can you tell it's your son"? Her friend replies "because he's the only one in step".

NASL Can Survive, Rebuild, & Thrive With D3 Sanctioning

http://midfieldpress.com/2016/12/07/nas ... nctioning/

The D2 and D3 designations are basically meaningless in the current US pyramid that has a lack of Pro/Rel. The real difference in the D2 and D3 levels is in the type of league models of each circuit. NASL is an independent professional league while USL is a mix of MLS minor league reserve and affiliate teams and a minority of independent clubs. This will not change if they swap Divisional sanctioning levels.

As 2 D3 USL teams have proven, a club can have a high level of success at this level. Although not representative of USL teams overall and the exception compared to most USL teams the league has had a small few who have had quite exceptional success in the form of FC Cincinnati & Sacramento Republic. These 2 teams have proven that the D3 label doesn’t inhibit the ability to succeed and they’re had strong average attendance’s in 2016 (17.2K, 11.5K) in D3 USL while most of the league averaged much less – USL averaged 3439 fans per game in 2016. NASL as a fully independent pro league without reserve or affiliate clubs would likely see their attendance levels maintained at close to present levels (4736 per game in 2016) and with the possibility of increasing them even at the D3 level.

Yes and looks like Tom Fath might be one of the important people and leaders very active in saving the NASL and looks like the league will be back for 2017.

Rumor now is that USL will remain D3 with many USL teams not meeting D2 requirements and NASL will remain D2 with a waiver for only falling short on the number of teams the league fields but having its clubs all meeting D2 requirements for net worth, stadiums, organizational staffing, etc.

Short version: decision is delayed until January. Seems like nobody knows what is going on, or what's going to happen then. They can only kick this can so much farther down the road with the teams waiting for a schedule. Nobody seems to know for sure what's going on with Edmonton.
