    that New England flag is one of the dumbest flags that I have ever seen. It looks like a child designed it after their first camping trip.
    Football. Bloody Hell.

    Time for Bill de Blasio (MLS is headquartered in NYC) to seize the single entity by eminent domain and grant free agency.

    It's a terrible time to be a U28 in MLS.

    How do you figure? They're in basically the same situation as before. For context, NHL UFAs need to be 27 or have 7 years experience. 28 AND 8 isn't great, but it seems to me like it's a good place to be for five seasons, especially relative to the status quo.

    The minimum salary went from like $36k to $60k.

    And, as above, it's only a 5 year deal. Plenty of time for the league to bring in more investors and more Audi sponsorships to announce mid-negotiation.

    DCU bounced out of CCL. This CBA sucks we need a higher cap to beat these Latin American teams.

    Seems like a pretty good compromise to me. Too many people wanted MLSPU to get everything they asked for. Not how things work. They got a very liveable wage for all their players and they have the ability to improve things in a shorter amount of time when there should be more money being brought in.

    You answered it yourself. 28/8 is much worse than 27/7, especially when you consider that's the prime of a soccer player's life.

    Oh, and I won't even mention the NHL minimum vs the MLS minimum during that extra year of indentured servitude.

    Weird how the sport that earns several times more from TV and has higher ticket prices and more games has higher salaries.

    Do you think this CBA represents an improvement for players?

    Yeah Siff I'm not sure what you're arguing. The players got a lot. Especially considering that most of your new owners are still significantly in the red from their buy-in fee.

    It's an improvement, I won't argue that. Of course, anything would have been an improvement.

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Looking forward to Maloney and Igboananike putting a beat down on Galaxy to start the season.



    I don't know if Facebook forgot that SJ, Montreal have teams or if they just don't have enough supporters to create a section of the map for them.

    I guess they didn't want to separate states. Here's California's breakdown.



    And Tejas.

    No? They have a NASL team and are pushing for the next round of expansion

    Spanish speaking MLS TV audience is larger than the Anglo one IIRC.
