    I'll be honest. I never heard of the roadrunners. Are you talking about the hockey team?

    Not a full MLS team?

    Sorry, I don't follow soccer at all, I just chimed in because it was the first thread on Tapatalk

    Werent the road runners minor league? Is this soccer team minor league?

    They are a USL team which is professional Division II. Phoenix Rising is one of 12 cities trying to land a MLS expansion team. There are 4 expansion team being added in the next two years. Phoenix is believed to be near the top of that list.

    What if we changed "Mercury" to "Rising" on the existing forum?

    I don't like the idea of 'changing' it from Mercury to Rising. I would like to see a Mercury/Rising forum.

    Bruce Willis would be proud.

    If he wasn't such a jerk.

    Exactly why I would do it. Once the forum is created, that section will eventually be picked up by search engines and more trsffic/people will find it when searching for phx raising.

    To that point, I did a Google search on "phoenix rising soccer message board" and this thread was the first item that popped up.

    There doesn't appear to be a message board for the Rising out there right now. If they get the MLS bid and have more resources to put into their official website they will probably have one, but as of right now the official team site does not have one and there doesn't appear to be an active message board for the team that I can find.

    That was my thinking. We get out in front and become the original message board for the Phoenix Rising FC.
