Google isn't the end all/ be all. A guy on the basketball board gave me the "Google is your friend treatment" and proceeded to post an 100% incorrect "fact".

Sure, but a research link was simply provided. @UCFB fan got it.

Barring some more efficient and effective alternatives, alphabet & other search engines enable quick info access, e.g., # of teams in major US/Canadian sports leagues. Any results are on the user to validate. Surely, you must have a more reliable resource. Trust, but verify.

I'm too lazy to search Google. Plus, some people have sites they know that provide that info so I trust them vs searching on Google.

However, it was well played in terms of a response! :D

The new owner of the NFL Panthers, David Tepper, is driving this. Charlotte was not on anyone's MLS list until he came on board. The Raleigh club has a lot more history with soccer and has a plan for a downtown MLS stadium; but, lacks a big-pockted owner, which is what Tepper is. The two groups should work together as I can't see North Carolina supporting 2 MLS franchises.

The only reason North Carolina FC left the NASL for USL was to get into MLS. So F ‘em. I’d go with the deep pocketed owner because that seems to work better.
