IMO they keep the lower bowl only because it looks better and feels better. One of the few things the Caps do that I agree with. 

Avoiding empty seats there is a big priority, especially for this upcoming season.

I am confused, since BC Place announces their lower bowl MLS capacity at around 22,100, but they say they got over 24,000 for the  playoff game vs. Portland last season. How does that figure?

The lower bowl actually seats closer to 27,000 in the soccer configuration. The Whitecaps tarp off some of the seats at the top of certain sections to make their 22,100 capacity. For certain matches, they remove some tarps to increase attendance...like the playoff game. No way they open the upper bowl when they can't even completely fill the lower bowl.

He's played at both positions and would definitely be playing at CDM in Vancouver.

He’s played the majority of his games at RB, and I highly doubt he’ll be playing DM for the Whitecaps.

What???? you mean the USMNT has only just now announced their Jan camp call ups?? Oh the shame!!!  We whine that there is no word about our possible camp, but the mighty americans just released their roster today!!

Mlssoccer.com reporting that Ousted has been traded to DC United for a draft pick

If so, I wish him all the best.  I don't think DC United play at BC Place this regular season so it's too bad the supporters won't be able to show their appreciation this year.

Any comments about us going to Hawaii for part of the preseason? Is there any sense to that?

We play a friendly there, then in Nevada, then the next day in LA, which I find very odd. Is that a properly planned preseason?

Attendance for the Lions and now the Canucks is down.  I wonder if this malaise is affecting the Caps as well, and they are on a pre-emptive mode?

Economy?

Juarez confirming that he's going to the Caps, and likening his move to Coutinho's move to Barcelona in that the Caps are a "big club".

Interesting characterization but I would say it's a good move. I was sort of hoping it was TFC he was being linked to. Would be nice competition for Hasler, but for Vancouver well done. Really gives the young right back some competition. Good signing, starting material.

No, I don't think so.  I think other factors, including the quality of the product and the fairweather mentality.

He did a stint with Celtic, so I'm guessing chief scout Park is familiar with him and thought he would be a good fit here.

After talking with some people, it looks like the intention is to play Juarez as a midfielder. Puzzling decision, given he hasn’t really played there in years.
