"If a fan wants to see a hockey game, they can go see the Wolves. If they want to see the best in hockey, they go see the Blackhawks. If a fan wants to see a baseball game, he could go see the new
Chicago Dogs. If he wants to see major-league baseball, he goes and sees the White Sox. The same is true for us. If someone wants to see the best soccer, they’re going to see Chicago Fire Soccer
-- Chicago Fire president and general manager Nelson Rodriguez
on the impact of the proposed USL team coming to Chicago, which he described as a "hypothetical."
He added that was why the Fire was valued by Forbes at $240 million and "minor-league expansion fees" are at $3 million-$5 million.
