    Funny. If he brings a team down here I would not follow it.
    a) I don't like Beckham
    b) Calling a team Miami Beckham United or something like that is outright pathetic
    c) A south Florida team belongs in the tri-county area. It will fail if it is strictly Miami based.

    Currently I am going with my friend to the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in the NASL. They average about 4500 per game. I used to go to the Fusion back in the days.

I thought I would see just how many on here follow it. I know loads of US based fans of English and Spanish teams but oddly I don't know a single MLS fan... any of you guys support an American team?

    Personally I am a Manchester United fan and also support a team in the local semi-professional league in Northern Ireland - the quality inst great but I enjoy it.
    I watch some MLS games but, the quality of play is not close to the English Premier League, and even the Mexican league. IF there is a Miami team, I would watch and go to some games. Hell, I went to a number of Ft. Lauderdale Striker games years ago,

    I hate it. There is a DC United. Plus Miami United was used before and is used again.
    Miami United was short lived and rebranded into Miami FC in 2006. They drew like 20 people. Once they moved up to Fort Lauderdale they increased attendance. to maybe 2000-3000 average. The rebranding into Strikers in 2010 gave attendance an additional boost. Currently they draw about 4500-5000 which is pretty good for a minor league soccer team.

    Currently there is a Miami United playing in Hialeah. They are playing in the NPSL.

    If Beckham would have any smarts at all (I always considered him a numb nut) he would dig right into that. Move the team to the tri-county area and just redo Lockhard Stadium. It is a 20,000 seat crap stadium (its old) but the infrastructure is there (lights, utilities etc). Both areas behind the goals are bleachers and easily removed. The sideline seating is easily removed as well and can be rebuild. There is abundant parking areas plus the stadium sits on a lot right next to I95 and between two major East-West bound roads (Commercial and Cypress Creek Road). Can't have it any better than that.

    Partner with Traffic Sports USA (who owns the Strikers) and name the team Florida Strikers. Keep the bumble bee jerseys and off we go.

    Instead he pissing around in the port area and the downtown area and just stumbling around like an idiot.

    Any major team requires the support of the tri county area. Joe Robby realized that first. The Panthers followed and the Marlins made the mistake moving back south. I believe the Dolphins and Panthers draw about 1/3 of their season ticket holders from the Palm Beach County area. I am one of them. I got my Panthers tickets immediately after they moved to Sunrise. It was just easier to get there.
