Kroenke is now owner of Union Station and the overhaul that is involved at that site. Plans even call for a soccer stadium anchored on the southern portion. So on one street STL could house MLS, NHL, and MLB. All plans, all off in the future, etc, etc.
I have heard about this and have seen some renderings of the proposed overhaul. They need to do something with Union Station, for sure. It used to be a nice spot to visit when downtown, but it's gone way downhill. If they put a stadium down there, coupled w/ the 'Trade and Busch all on one street, you'd have quite the sports destination.
I agree about the AC STL logo. I loved the yellow/green colors, which would be unique to MLS. At the very least, I wish they'd get a team back in the NASL so they could start taking root. You look at all the Pacific Northwest teams, Montreal, etc. that had roots in the D2 level before making the jump. I know St. Louis has a supporters group--The St. Louligans--that follow the St. Louis Lions and encourage other soccer fans to follow, but I live 2 hours away. It's hard to follow a PDL team. When AC STL was around, all of their games could be streamed online for free.
But I digress. I know Don Garber used to always bring St. Louis up for an MLS spot, but that's cooled off. All it will take is a stadium and a sound owner. If anyone in St. Louis steps up with that, the team will have a franchise.
(Also, I apologize for hijacking this thread and turning it into an MLS discussion. Honestly had no idea we had this many MLS fans here.
