He is 100% right. That's why the league has not grown. I go to the Dynamo games for cheap entertainment for me and my boys, not for football.

To be honest the league is poor...it isn't competitive. The playoffs...no relegation or promotion....

THAT'S WHAT'S GREAT ABOUT IT


Relegation/promotion is a relic. American leagues have thrived without it. It works for the European leagues but I bet if they were starting all over, they wouldn't have it either. Meanwhile, Zlatan should be ready for a drubbing when they meet.

You know, people always say that when you attack your opponent or speak down in your opponent, it is a motivation for your opponent.

I always found this interesting. In psychology, this is not always the case. Many times, more often than not, when you boast, attack your opponent, speak down on your opponent, you put pressure on your opponent. You make your opponent second-guess his/her ability, you create a situation where your opponent now has to concentrate on multiple things. You include emotion into your opponent's decision-making. The likes of Muhammad Ali, Mourinho, Ferguson and Zlatan have done this for years!

Dont let Rohr deceive you people. Being a coward doesnt mean your opponent will take it easy on you. Look at how Algeria humiliated us. Being bigger than life is usually more effective. Sometimes, it may motivate your opponent, but most times will break your opponent before the game starts!

We have fallen into the trick of looking at football through a Western Eurocentric lens and believing that every football system should resemble it.

Atlanta team is entertaining. The MLS is growing, it is slowly becoming a non retirement league. But still a long ways to go.

In 10 years, I expect the MLS to be the best league in the American continent.

We watched this very boring video, 500 times, of Sacchi doing defensive drills, using sticks and without the ball, with Maldini, Baresi and Albertini.

WITHIN THAT SAME PERIOD...


…European leagues will be saying we should have slain the beast before it became so big, with their top young players opting for the MLS over them. And there'll be an emergence of native players also.

I never got that either. Promotion/relegation works in Europe because they have a stronger footy culture there, it would kill the MLS in no time if implemented. Fans aren't going to follow relegated teams, Americans want to support teams that win or have a chance if winning the top trophies.

LOOK AT IT FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF AN INVESTOR


You spend a fortune building a stadium and building up a solid roster. Then your financial people do a long-term financial projection. All of a sudden, due to, say, injuries to star players, your team is no longer competitive and is relegated. And you're not sure how long it will take you to return to top flight. How do you now meet your financial obligations? A lot of investors could look at this scenario and pass. Other sports leagues in the US are thriving and competitive without the relegation/promotion contraption and haven't seen a need for it.

Growth is having teams that can string two quality passes together.

Algeria defeating us with an absolute QUALITY goal in the 94 minute is now branded as “humiliating us”? Nigerians keep deceiving yourself! There’s no harm in being humble especially as your team isn’t filled with World class players. There’s no harm in acknowledging that you lost to a better team and learning from your mistakes then eventually winning it. You used SAF, Mourinho and Ibrahimovich as a perfect example of arrogance but we can also use Pep, Ronaldinho, Messi as an epitome of Greatness that were respectful/humble
