You do realize a new stadium for the Energy is about to be announced in downtown OKC?   Also, Rayo has averaged over 4K fans and the Energy over 5.5K since being OKC.   The Energy will soon (within 3-5 years) have a soccer specific stadium near the river at the old COOP site that will be MLS ready.  The folks high level at the Energy I know, believe MLS will be in OKC within 7 years.   The stadium will be within walking distance to this.

Welcome!   The off base and ridiculous comments in this thread/board require response.   

Never mind the 21C opening this week and the Criterion.....

Also, welcome to all my family travelling to OKC from Tulsa for the Dead Center Film Festival.  The premiere film festival in the state.  Oh wow, I forgot.  Tulsa has way more culture.  Maybe Keyser can hijack history and claim the Bob Dylan archives and Woody Guthrie heritage as your own...

There are salves for whatever is burning your anal area.

It's going to be okay if you like OKC over Tulsa.  Seriously, how proud of a town can you be when it's in Oklahoma?

Hasn't posted in almost three years, so yes.

I find that the d-bag ratio on OKC is typically higher than the national average.

The sports hucksters in OKC fighting over who controls the Tulsa Roughnecks name have been saying that crap for the last three years I can count... good luck with that.
I'm sure it'll go about as well as the tarp your AAA ballclub had to put over 4,000 seats at your ballpark in bricktown this season so it doesn't look quite so much like failure.
http://newsok.com/article/4748134

Also, Rayo has averaged over 4K fans

About that, I got a couple of tweets today... let's see if I can translate for you:

"Se buscan fórmulas para "replegar velas" del Rayo OKC. Dijo Yáñez."
Literal translation is:  Formulas is looking to "retract candles" Ray OKC. Said Yanez.
Figurative translation is:  Yañez confirms that Rayo V. will look to "take the sails down" at Rayo OKC.

Let's go to the second tweet:  "Presa confirma que se estudia qué hacer con la franquicia del Rayo en Oklahoma. Venderla a lo mejor, perdiendo el menor dinero posible."
Literal translation is:  He confirms that he is studying what to do with the franchise of Rayo in Oklahoma. Sell it to the best, losing less money as possible.
Figurative translation is:  RAYO OKC is gonna get sold sooner or later and your majority owner wants to get rid of you ASAP, losing as little money as possible.

Here's the full story, which IMHO proves that huckster Brad Lund likely misled Rayo Vallecano about the requirements and costs of being in the NASL.
Especially since it only took them less than half a season to come to the conclusion that 2nd division soccer at Yukon High School was a bad idea.
http://www.empireofsoccer.com/relegated-rayo-vallecano-explore-possible-sale-of-okc-49246/



and the Energy over 5.5K since being OKC.

Really?  

http://www.kenn.com/the_blog/?page_id=4366
1st season in 2014:  3,784
2nd season in 2015:  4,635
Five home games into 2016:  5,481

So yeah, you go on a Tulsa site and lie like a dog.
BTW, OKC has never had a crowd of over 10,000 fans for soccer... ever.
Tulsa has 99 of the top 100 crowds in Oklahoma soccer history.

The Energy will soon (within 3-5 years) have a soccer specific stadium near the river at the old COOP site that will be MLS ready.  The folks high level at the Energy I know, believe MLS will be in OKC within 7 years.
 

I guess that means for sure that OKC must get better tv ratings than Tulsa for MLS, US Soccer, and Premier League, thus justifying your MLS aspirations, eh?

Welp.... not here... http://www.thebentmusket.com/commentary/2014/12/11/7377111/boston-providence-top-improved-tv-ratings-for-mls-cup-final-2014
Or maybe it's here..... http://thefutoncritic.com/ratings/2016/03/30/usa-guatemala-espns-best-audience-for-semifinal-round-of-fifa-world-cup-qualifiers-877514/20160330espn03/
Or maybe the last big weekend for EPL on the NBC networks... http://worldsoccertalk.com/2016/05/16/overnight-tv-ratings-championship-sunday-increase-10-compared-last-year/
Or maybe there's an OKC sighting here in tv ratings for EPL based on a full season.... http://www.socceramerica.com/article/68858/tv-report-epl-outdraws-nhl-in-2015-16.html
Okay fine, maybe an FA Cup....   http://www.socceramerica.com/article/58225/english-fa-cup-audience-up-13-percent-on-fox.html

You notice a trend here???... I sure as hell do.
Now go away TROLL!!!

I know,  I know, the quality of life is so much better in Tulsa.....

Quality of life is just fine here, thank you very much and improving with each passing year... http://agatheringplacefortulsa.com/

MLS addiction is beyond toxic. What the Energy owners are doing to Tulsa is even worse.

No argument there, I lived in Tulsa in the late 70s; it has always been a very clean & beautiful community; however, OKC has shown remarkable 'quality of life' improvements in the last decade.  Wish nothing but the best for Oklahoma's two largest metropolitan areas. 

The Producers' COOP mill site has shut down in lower Bricktown in OKC--operations relocated to Ada, Oklahoma.   The site has been purchased by someone; however, details about a buyer hasn't been disclosed or the sales price of the land:

The sale announcement on Friday did not disclose the buyer, the sale price or what will happen with the 37-acre property at 4 SE 4.
