Yes I’m late with this for you guys, but I had to put it up after getting distracted with a couple of things on a personal level, but once again the popular American Soccer Show is back here on Once a Metro.
There is a lot of discussion about what happens in the sport when we talk about the lower levels of the game that isn’t in MLS and when you talk about a club that has had some difficulties as well as they are now up in the air to exist, you need to discuss them.
The Fort Lauderdale Strikers is that club which was big in the 70’s of the original North American Soccer League, but now is considered to be a nuisance with the mismanagement by their former Brazilian owners who just allowed them to fall into a black hole of financial ruin.
The club just went thru an auction of who will control the name and other aspects of it, but was won by current Tampa Bay Rowdies owner Bill Edwards and the man who started all this when he was in the NASL giving financial help to the Strikers.
But as always I am very happy to have a colleague like Neil Morris of WRAL Sports Fan to inform me about why these things have happened and the legal issues that went to this auction for the Strikers name and give credit to Jake Nutting from Empire of Soccer following these incidents.
