MOST COMMENTED

[MLS SPOTLIGHT] The Seattle Sounders have always done things a little differently -- beginning with an average attendance of more than 42,000, almost double any other team in MLS -- and they'll let season-ticket holders and other club members vote on whether to keep general manager Adrian Hanauer.

The online vote will begin on Oct. 7 at noon (PT) and conclude until Dec. 7 at 11:59 p.m. (PT). More details on the voting process will be announced next week.

Hanauer was a fan of the NASL Sounders as a child and became the managing partner for the USL Sounders in 2002.

He is part of the investor group led by Hollywood executive Joe Roth that launched the MLS Sounders in 2009.

The Sounders have polled their fans and season-ticket holders before.

In March 2008, more than 14,000 votes were cast for some derivative of “Sounders.” Season-ticket members have voted on the name of the association (Alliance), band name (Sound Wave), and Golden Scarf recipients to name a few.

Sounders season-ticket members will participate in the general manager elections every four years.

The chairman of the Alliance is actor/comedian Drew Carey.

Membership in the Alliance is complimentary for season-ticket members, and non-season ticket holders can join for an annual fee of $125.

Benefits include voting privileges, membership pin, membership card, discount at team shops, an invitation to the annual meeting, e-letters during the season and more.
