MLS is top tier League 1 at worst, mid-level championship at best.

It's getting better, but there are still so many systematic problems with the league (like no promotion and relegation).

Its impossible to have pro rel here.

The real Lions Millwall is a bigger story.

Zlatan scored the winner again for LA Galaxy. I think he suits being the biggest cock in the roost.

The massive financial cost of travel which can't be sustained by lower league teams.

Baseball and the NFL manage travel be playing in regional divisions until the playoffs. It's not impossible, just another challenge. Phoenix will get in the MLS in the next expansion round. They've got a good setup and it's close to home, but I'm going to ignore it until they expand further with pro/rel.

Baseball and NFL has far more money. Lower leagues in baseball are essentially all reserve teams for major league teams and are subsidized by major league teams.

Stuff like this happens at work from time to time. Someone says 'it's impossible' or 'can't be done' and I give my usual response .. Get the fuck out of the way so we can get on with it.
