Covering the Coverage

Preseason is heating up around the league, so we thought it would be worth checking to see if local papers are taking notice.  We’ll start in Salt Lake City, where the always excellent Michael Lewis offers up this detailed piece on the roster makeover for RSL.  The piece includes interviews and a look at some of the team’s injury problems for the coming year.  The Trib always offers outstanding coverage of the team and this preseason is no exception.

Salt Lake City isn’t the only market that gets great local newspaper coverage of her soccer team.  The Seattle Times offers a great article looking at the Sounders attack.  The piece focuses on the amount of offensive firepower returning to the Emerald City.

It’s not just recent additions to the league that are garnering attention in their local papers.  The Chicago Fire earned some ink in the Tribune with this substantive piece.  Interviews with Frank Klopas from the team’s training destination are included.

Finally, we’ll close in Kansas City, where the Star offers this take on Sporting’s 2012 depth.  The article includes interviews with Peter Vermes and players and takes a detailed look at the roster for the coming year.
