MLS is a pyramid scheme. I wouldn't be too excited about getting a team. They keep expanding because it's the main way they make money due to new franchise fees. Each city pays in like 100-200 million dollars for a new team:

It's not all that popular. There's MAYBE 10 MLS cities total that show up to the games consistently. Probably less. Attendance is down in a significant way league wide and shows no reason to reverse itself:

If anything MLS should contract down to 10-12 cities.

Wow, can't believe i just typed all that shit out about poverty ball

MODOT's on-line survey is BULLSHIT!
It will not accept ant comment that does not endorse one of the three "alternatives" that involve building a new bridge, while they list repair of the existing structure as one of the allowable choices.

Obviously they have already made their decision and will allow only those responses that support their choices.

I have no problems with MLS expansion and it should do well in St. Louis, which is a major soccer town. However, at some point, the talent is really getting watered down with all these teams to play for.
