Occasionally, we media types are told we cover too much of one main stream sport, and don’t give others enough attention.
Over the years I have been told Saskatchewan’s soccer community is huge and that I don’t give the game the respect it deserves.

We will get a true gauge on what kind of market this is when Laliga’s Valencia faces the New York Cosmos at the new Mosaic Stadium.
A soccer team that features Nani and plays in the same league as Real Madrid and Barcelona should draw well on a late Saturday afternoon.
If the new Mosaic Stadium is over half full for a match of this caliber, then I may need to re-think my approach. It it’s not, it’ll be coverage as usual.
