As the MLS continues to grow, what's the next step for the New England Revolution?

Jonathan Kraft joined Felger and Mazz to discuss the future of the franchise.

"I think the real issue is, and it's no secret, we need a soccer-specific stadium," said Kraft. "An NFL team couldn't get anything done in Greater Boston and had to move to Foxboro. We know an NHL and NBA arena took two decades to get done.

"I think Mayor Menino didn't really view this as a priority, so we banged our head against a wall for a while… I think Mayor Walsh has a real interest in it, and it's something we're working hard on achieving."
