    Nope. MLS reviewed the possible cities for expansion, but no vote was had. They said they had no plan to vote. They did say Cincinnati took a positive step forward with their stadium deal.

    .@fccincinnati gm @jeffBerding should know by this evening if team is awarded an @MLS franchise, according to source close to team. @JohnLondonWLWT with reports at 5&6. @WLWT
    MLS' statement is awfully similar to the one they issued after the first meeting in December, where days later they announced Nashville.

    What are you getting at? You frequently seem to hint at things and never make an actual statement.
