How does this article differ from Major Indoor Soccer League (2001)? RickK | Talk 04:15, 6 Apr 2004 (UTC)

Most people refer to the current MISL, not the defunct organization. I left the link to the defunct organization at the bottom of the current organization (which doesn't even have an article, BTW. 65.81.230.48 04:19, 6 Apr 2004 (UTC) actually, User:ebeisher

Dallas & Monterey[edit]

Has there been an announcement for Dallas and Monterey returning? I have not seen one. When one is published, those franchises will be added, not before. KitHutch 15:11, 17 February 2006 (UTC)

Dallas is returning in 2006, according to today's edition of the Baltimore Sun. Tatu found an owner. OsFan 15:08, 23 February 2006 (UTC)
I think that we need to wait for an official word from the league and Dallas itself before we can pronounce them "returning." A small excrept in the Baltimore Sun is not enough for me when there is nothing on the league website. KitHutch 19:05, 23 February 2006 (UTC)
Although if we wait for the league website, they'll post an announcement in two years. In all seriousness though, I'll just mention on the MISL article page it's rumored they are returning. OsFan 20:49, 23 February 2006 (UTC)
I've been following indoor soccer for 20 years. I have heard a lot of promises from team owners and league commissioners. I tend not to believe anything until there is some concrete evidence. I would like to be optimistic, but this sport has not given me a lot to be optimistic about in the last few years. KitHutch 05:03, 24 February 2006 (UTC)
Well that's fine to believe, and I think we've reached a compromise. I don't mind them being in the defunct section as long as the rumored return is mentioned. OsFan 13:13, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

Possible expansion[edit]

I have deleted all the possible expansion except for Monterrey. Sources over two years old are not reliable for possible further expansion. KitHutch 15:25, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Blast.gif[edit]

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template.

MISL II[edit]

On team pages, why are they listed as being part of MISL II? Where does the II come from? There is no explanation anywhere. Tuyvan 17:31, 3 July 2007 (UTC)

  • This is the second incarnation of the MISL. The original league folded in 1992 as the MSL. This league formed out of the folding of the NPSL in 2001. Wildthing61476 17:34, 3 July 2007 (UTC)
The official designation of the league is MISL. I think that in the team page info boxes and record boxes that they should be listed only as MISL. MISL II makes it sound like a secondary league. Can someone provide a source that has this league officially designated as MISL II? You will not find it on the official MISL site or see it anywhere in the media. Tuyvan 17:53, 3 July 2007 (UTC)
I agree with you there, I'm not sure of the naming protocol as to why this version of the MISL is known as MISL II, unless it's to differentiate between the two separate leagues. Wildthing61476 18:01, 3 July 2007 (UTC)
Yes, that is the reason that this league is listed as MISL II. Too many people confuse the current league with the 1978-1992 originization. I believe the Dallas Sidekicks are listed as being part of MISL I and MISL II since they were in two separate leagues that had the same name. If you look, Milwaukee, Baltimore, and Philadelphia are also listed as being part of NPSL II. The original NPSL was an outdoor soccer league that became part of the NASL.

Wave Inactive?[edit]

Are there any sources to verify that the Wave are inactive for next season? Wildthing61476 20:35, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

None what so ever. Website has open tryout scheduled in September. Michael Greiner 22:31, 21 July 2007 (UTC)
I should have posted after I revert the page, I noticed that IP doing some other vandalism to other indooc soccer pages as well. Wildthing61476 23:04, 21 July 2007 (UTC)

2007-08 finals in Milwaukee[edit]

I noted in the MISL Championship Series, that the 2008 Final Game was to be play in Milwaukee. Has this even been announced yet? Wildthing61476 (talk) 16:13, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

Yes, it has. MISL Championship series website --Michael Greiner 16:29, 8 December 2007 (UTC)


Goal-points rationale[edit]

Is there any specific information regarding why the league would decide for a multiple point system? Why is it part of FIFA with all of its extraneous rules?

The MISL is part of FIFA because it is part of the USSF. KitHutch (talk) 06:06, 1 March 2008 (UTC)
The league, as far as I know, has the multiple point scoring to keep it more exciting for the fans. I've been watching for ~12 years and can say the possibility of a three point goal always gives hope when behind, and keeps you on the edge of your seat when ahead. They did have single point scoring in I believe 2002-03 and 2003-04 (I know they had it, can't remember which seasons), but I always liked the multi-point better. --Michael Greiner 11:19, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

California Cougars gone from MISL?[edit]

I noticed there have been a few edits to the page regarding the status of the California Cougars. While the MISL has not mentioned the Cougars are no longer part of the league on their website (they still have the St. Louis Steamers in the team list!), the Cougars on their site here announce they are now playing in the PASL-Pro league. I've reverted the page back to show the Cougars are no longer in the MISL as an active franchise. Wildthing61476 (talk) 15:34, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Just found a 2nd link regarding the move of the Cougars from the MISL to the PASL: here. Wildthing61476 (talk) 17:39, 8 May 2008 (UTC)
See this link from the Stockton Record here. The PASL franchises will not be finalized until after the league meeting on May 18. The lease agreement does not go before the city council until May 20. It also states that even though California is effectively out of the MISL, it is not finalized. We should hold off on making changes until everthing is finalized. I don't see a problem with adding information that the Cougars may be leaving the league. Just don't make the change that shows them being out of the league until it actually happens. Tuyvan (talk) 20:21, 8 May 2008 (UTC)
Sounds good to me then, no harm in waiting then. Though I do find it odd the Cougars on their own site talk about joining the PASL....and still have all of the references and layout for the MISL site. Wildthing61476 (talk) 20:25, 8 May 2008 (UTC)
The deal to move to the PASL has been talked about for some time in the Record. As mentioned in the article, it is now down to the final approvals. The chance of it not happening is pretty low. As for the Cougars own press release, they are just looking to the future. Just like someone getting ready to start a new job. I am sure that as soon as everything is final the website will change from the MISL layout. I have a list in my head of several pages and templates here on Wikepedia that will need to be updated as soon as everything is official. Tuyvan (talk) 20:34, 8 May 2008 (UTC)
Works for me! Wildthing61476 (talk) 20:36, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

MISL Folding[edit]

Per this article here, I believe the article needs to be updated to show the league ceased operations effective May 31st. Wildthing61476 (talk) 16:57, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

This could have been done without suggesting here first. It isn't controversial so there is nothing to discuss. Although, the article has been changed so it is a moot point now.--Michael Greiner 23:57, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
Actually I was going to make the change earlier, got side tracked at work, then when I went to make the change, it was already done. Wildthing61476 (talk) 00:12, 3 June 2008 (UTC)
