Don't fret, it took the Timbers 5 years before they went to the MLS or 7 if you count the two years after the announcement. It takes time and if you look at the cities they have listed, they have a similarity to Portland. They all have 1 pro team, unless you could the Bangles, then Cincinnati has two. Phoenix has all four and other than the Cardinals, attendance for the other three aren't great right now. They want cities that need the MLS more than the MLS needs them.
Detroit came out of nowhere.
always had the owners with deep pockets, just needed the stadium plan in place

Technology mogul Meg Whitman and her husband Griffith Harsh, a neurosurgeon, on Wednesday announced they have joined the ownership group for Sacramento Republic FC's bid for an MLS expansion franchise:
If Phoenix Rising wants one of the 2 remaining expansion slots they better bring in a Daddy Warbucks type of billionaire to join the ownership group.
So who won the bids?
