    good news in view of the cost of travel now with gas prices what they are an other costs of living, job lossses, etc..we must continue to provide entertainment at half times, that even surpasses the previous. Many, (like me) like to watch in the comfort of our homes rather than drive a long distance an fight traffic an high priced seats. I think pay per view stiffles the promotion of soccer as many just will not pay for what they already feel in high prices for the cable an satillites...basically, those that can afford it go to the games, those that can not, enjoy it at home an support the teams in other ways like purchasing gear from the representative teams they are fans of...in Iowa, we do not have a MLS team that is near enough to go to except in Chicago or KC...both, long drives....I am glad to see that the locals are mostly getting more support in these economic times....
