    "Soccer" America, when will you realize comparisons are ungenuinely cumbersome. Report attendances without your freaking agenda like you always do.

    What's their agenda? I think it's an interesting comparison. It shows that Portland is an incredible soccer town that supports all its teams and that Cincy belongs in MLS. Certainly Cincy deserves to be in MLS more than Miami.

    @FPGN, yes, SA is a full of agenda blog. As far Cincy belonging/deserving to be in MLS, well, that is a debatable topic. Too many of you live on this deserving socialistic mindset views on Pro/Rel and now attendace is a sexy topic to manipulate agendas

    Not sure what your point is. Is pro/rel socialist in your mind or not? In any event, MLS is expanding and Cincy has shown they support the game more than just about any market not currently in MLS (and more than many currently with MLS teams).

    What is their 'Agenda'?
    This seems like a pretty benign article listing all of the weekend's attendances, just like they do every week.

    Without comparison, data are boring and useless. I like what SA is doing.
