Division Change Blocked

1986: Gordon Jago, acting as the Sidekicks's director at the MISL league meetings, blocked a proposed move of the Sidekicks back to the Western Division (where they played in the 1984-85 season). He cited rivalries that were established with clubs in the Eastern Division as the reason to stay put.
