RSL News Stand: Sunday, April 8, 2012

A great crowd, some sharp play, a little controversy and a little more chippiness … last night’s opening Subaru Rocky Mountain Cup contest had the usual elements – the most important of which for RSL was another three points to cap off a perfect three-win week! Read all about it in today’s edition of the RSL News Stand …

9 points in 8 days, not bad... Thanks for making the Riot one of the toughest stadiums to play at. Focus now on KC. #RockyMountainCup #RSL

Once people experience a #RSL in person they are hook. Amazing atmosphere tonight. Great game. #RSLTID

RSL's TV broadcast team is the class of the league, methinks. Though I kinda like Portland's too.

Is there any way a petition would work to get ESPN to pick up @RealSaltLake vs. @SportingKC next week??? #mustseetv #skcvsrsl #rslvsskc
