ok, before any of you guys start bashing the MLS, please read on a bit before you post your thoughts.
For those that are not farmiliar, MLS (Major League Soccer) is the professional football/soccer league of the United States of America. MLS was founded in 1996 and with its 11th season about to start (April 1st) it consits of 12 teams. official site - www.MLSnet.com
First and foremost, I am not gonna be dumb and say something stupid like MLS is better than the MAJOR Euro and other world leagues such as the Serie A, EPL, La Liga, Bundesliga, Argentine and Brazilian Leagues, Eredivisie, French League 1, and the likes.
I still believe that the FIFA world league rankings are unfair ranking MLS at 64th in the world.
MLS has produced many talented players over the years, some of whom have gone onto bigger stages, for example (Brian McBride - Fulham, Bocanegra - Fulham, DeMarcus Beasly - PSV) to name a few.
I think it is a very respectable league for only 10 years in the making and believe it will be one of the worlds football powerhouse leagues within the next 20 years or so.
MLS still lacks some of the skill, speed, and finesse compared to the BIG leagues, but improvements on and off the field have been apparent in each of the its first 10 years. A record, 6 of 12 MLS teams will feature their own soccer specific stadia in 2006.
While this may be no big feat to the rest of the football crazed world, it is a great one for the MLS growing up in the US, where soccer/football is considered no better than 5th behind NBAbasketball, NFLfootball, MLBbaseball, and NHLhockey.
with this, I would now love to hear some questions, comments, and criticism from football fans all around the world regarding MLS.
