Interesting article.

Although...there's a typo in this paragraph

                     "It was extremely frustrating," said Austin captain
and scrumhalf Rick Medina. "We were in total comments
                     from the beginning to the end. But we are looking
forward to getting another chance at them in the Westerns.

I assume thats..."we were in total command..."

How come there's no Pacific NW teams?  I'm aware of Old Puget Sound in
the other competition, in which it sounds like they're doing a lot
better this year, and Seattle's Canadian play, but were none of the
others interested or not qualified in some way?

What's your opinion on the success of Seattle's plan of improving their
play via Canadian opponents versus playing in either of the two US
leagues?

Thanks,

Dick  (good stuff, by the way!)

Well, MLR started in the Midwest, and like any good retail business, has
expanded only to states adjacent to staes already established in the
business. That's why the PNW is almost always last when retail organizations
expand. Nevertheless, now that they're in California, maybe they can bring
in an Oregon team like ORSU, or further north bring in Tacoma.

As for being interested ... well that's definitely a question. The region
has some issues to address that being part of MLR could only help.

As for Seattle. They're not exactly tearing up the BC Premiership, while
they remain a power (often using their second team) in PNRFU. I think it can
only make them better, but may also contribute to the inter-club
divisiveness in the region.
