The OWS broadcast should be available on the OWS website.

FiftyFive.One has learned that the Cosmos have ceased operations and the NASL is now down to only four teams. A source with information of the situation said it “appears that the NASL is officially dead.” It’s expected that those four teams will either go dark or make the move (subject to full vetting by USL and its owners) by the end of the week, if not the end of the USSF Board meeting vote on Tuesday.

This may be the end of the league here.

I don't get worked up about it until we have an official announcement.

There are way to many rumors out there at the moment.

Random source in the article says the Cosmos have lost 30 million dollars in 2.5 seasons. That's either unbelievable or crazy enough to be true.

Our owner is loosing 6-figuers each season as well so it sounds realistic.

I saw somewhere they said Cosmos were losing high 7 figures this last year. That is nuts. You would think after a the first couple years of losing that much money, they would cut back a la FCEd.

Twitter talk has every remaining NASL team, EXCEPT FC EDMONTON, in talks with USL for next season.
We need to hear from the Tom Fath pronto on what exactly is the fate of FCE.
If he is planning to go it alone next summer with a friendlies schedule against MLS, Euro and Brit teams, he needs to start planning and announcing those plans now. If he plans to join an all-Canadian league in 2018, he should be beating the drum now to get fans interested.
This could well be the most positive thing that has happened to Edmonton soccer in 4 decades.
EDIT:
Meanwhile the NASL, USSF and USL remain stuck with their heads in the sand;\:

I ran into the guys from the FCE podcast last night and they know as much as we do. For now they are planning next season in the NASL until they get an official announcement.

We think it tough for us not having answers, but imagine what they're going through, their livelyhood depends on this

Ya I was thinking about what must be going through the players' minds right about now.
