    MLS is like communism, with the way they try to make very team even so they force them to give up players of equal value. Then will never ever compete with the European leagues in terms of quality if they don't use a free trade system like they do.

    It's sad that we have huge talent in this country and ALL of them choose to play out of country because it's better. And the one guy here, Donovan, the league commissioner is not allowing him to leave for Man. City, more money, and better soccer. So pathetic.

    In short, **** MLS. It will never be anything as long as it is like this. Boring crap soccer with crap players.
    Firstly Jay, you have mentioned this before, so I am going to ask what "huge talent"? Donovan is a very good player, he played for Everton, a team that is comensurate with his skills, on a top 4 team he would be at best a squad player.

    Secondly, moving to Man City would be a big mistake for Donovan, joining a team that has David Silva, Yaya Toure,Nigel De Jongh, Gareth Barry, Shaun Wright Phillips, Adam Johnson, Stephen Ireland and Patrick Viera all in their midfield would have been a terrible mistake.

    Thirdly, have you seen the debts that quality is costing a great many teams in Europe? All the teams in the Spanish league are 4.5 billion dollars in debt. Barcelona have just announced 100 million dollar loss, this after winning every trophy that was on offer to them over the last financial year. I would take a fiscally prudent and well run league any day over the debts that some teams are saddled with.

    Finally I don't find the standard of the MLS that bad, I watch quite a few games and I think it can be decidedly more exciting than some leagues over here.

    Yeah I do think the statement about the MLS being boring and sucks is not true. I'm not hardcore, but I think the games are a lot of fun to watch.

    And very good points about the debt of some of those Euro teams, Crazy_Ivan. Amazing really to think teams/leagues can go soo far into a hole like that.

    Oh that is very cool! I was looking on their site, and the prices are pretty good I thought. I might get a package for the LA Galaxy, but I'm not sure tho. I have Kings season tickets and that costs a good amount already.

    What's made MLS last and sustain it's growth is it's business model. They knew that just re-inventing the NASL wouldn't work, so they put together a plan that kept salaries under control while at the same time taking a long view on the league. And look at it now. All the new teams in the league are flourishing, and look at all the new soccer specific stadiums that have sprouted up. And the Galaxy and a few others are actually profitable, something Man United can't say. Nor Liverpool, nor Real Madrid, Barca, Inter etc.

    Sure, the league isn't the same quality of the EPL, La Liga etc., but then again it's not trying to be. The MLS is building something for the future of USA soccer, and that's not something that can be accomplished in a decade.

    So, come back after 2025 and let me know what you think of the MLS. As for now, it's doing just fine.

    As for myself, I love going out to the HDC. It's 10 minutes from my front door, and it's an outstanding facility. As for the comparison of the fans to Ducks fans, tell that to the Angel City Brigade or the LA Riot Squad!
