Weekly Soccer Column: Galaxy struggle for traction in crowded LA sports market

It figures in a column about the Galaxy’s visibility among general sports fans in Southern California, the piece would go AWOL — on our own web sites (and we’re still awaiting the return of the dedicated soccer page on our websites since a radical redesign last week, in case you were wondering, BTW).

Still, you can belatedly read the column online as the Galaxy embarks on their final 10-game MLS stretch as well as the start of the CONCACAF Champions League tonight in Carson here.

Incidentally, regular Galaxy sellouts at home may be a thing of the past in Carson, but not elsewhere.

The Vancouver Whitecaps announced today that fewer than 1,000 tickets remain for Saturday’s game against the Galaxy.

    David Beckham’s impact won’t be a long-term as people believe. Besides, even with more media outlets than ever before, those media outlets tend to focus on the major sports to the exclusion of everything else. ESPN Radio in Los Angeles has become All Lakers All The Time, even during the off-season, merely because the station has the contract to broadcast the games. If the Dodgers weren’t playing so well and in such a dramatic fashion, they’d be ignored, too.
