TURF WAR? In Orlando, Mike Bianchi asked, "Could it be that Beckham's attempt to bring an MLS franchise to South Florida will trump Orlando City Soccer Club President Phil Rawlins' aspirations to do the same in Central Florida?" Rawlins said, "It's what I've been warning everyone about. We got a head start and have had an advantage, but that advantage can quickly be eroded if other cities start getting their act together. You're seeing indications of that now." Bianchi: "If Orlando's ownership group is smart, they will contact Beckham immediately to try to get him interested in Central Florida's effort instead of South Florida's. Instead of competing with Beckham why not join forces with him?" (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 6/2).
