Season begins tomorrow.
Of course this is the thread for Vito to post for players to watch.
If there's any bad highlights/commentary moments I'll post them here too just for laughs.
What is this sport called soccer?
El hombre le hace caricias al callaballo.....Pa' montarlo.
Interesting that Man City and the Yankees will pair up to form a team..
Is it true that the MLS is beating the NFL attendance wise?
PUT CRESPO IN LGI
As for attendance figures it is the 3rd most attended sport in America....HOWEVER some clubs fail to achieve a 70% average capacity average. The numbers are severely skewed as far as attendance goes. In order to judge MLS popularity you need to look at numerous factors most impotantly is the Television deals in the US. MLS has a 3 year deal for 27million....in comparison the NBA has a 960 million deal and NHL a 200 million deal (both achieved prior to MLS new deal for 27m). Also the EPL recently signed a TV deal here in the states for 3 years at 250 million. Don't let the attendance fool you it is not a league taking over the bigger sports leagues here in the US. The fear internally is that deals like the EPL and more and more "world football" coverage will hurt the MLS market share. Still thought the MLS holds strong offering the cheapest average professional sport ticket in America and a rabid fan base in each city its presence is in. It's more of a niche league that is getting steady slow growth....like a long term stock your investing in!

This is the cringiest shit I've ever seen. My goodness this is embarrassing and awful.
Song sheets handed out before an MLS game
''but we don't give a crud''
That's some intimidating stuff right there.
