    My 'local club' aka not MLS is soul but like typically American plastic, the hipster fans made scarves and shit that look European. Probably have chanting sheets lol. I guess in enough time they will seem more genuine to me. No MLS team in my area but I'd rather watch euro stuff anyways

      We copy NHL in hockey and Europe in soccer. Culture is all about taking influence elsewhere and molding it to fit local culture. Soccer culture has basically been built from scratch in America just a while ago so of course it looks like larp still. And South America were massive England larpers when they first brought soccer in. Place is full of clubs named Liverpool and Arsenal. Our local youth teams took their names from Bundesliga in the 90's so we aways knew our local rivals as Bayern Munchen, Dortmund and Leverkusen.

      I feel like most people who go to MLS games aren't even real sports fans. Its just something to do on a Saturday afternoon. Like my Local MLS team averages near max capacity but is anybody really that passionate about it? not really. The won the championship a few years back and no one really cared.

    Sorry to bring reason and common sense to a good shitflinging, but the US + Canada are so damn big that it would be too impractical to have relegation in a national league. You'd have to change divisions every season.

    American soccer would be in a much worse place if there was pro/rel

    It was basically built from scratch in the 90's and is still being built today, before then the only soccer was the school system.

    In order to build this, you need capital. MLS successfully attracted capital, and still does, people are paying $500M for expansion rights. A league with pro/rel would have never attracted this investment, and you wouldn't see the development of youth academies and nice soccer specific stadiums that we have today.

    Also, I don't understand why lower leagues are non-relevant just because they don't have pro/rel. Can't they be relevant for their own sake? College sports are popular here, and multiple levels are popular without any pro/rel. People don't cheer for their team to go to a higher level, people cheer for them to win the championship.

        The problem is the teams at the top don't wan't it and MLS has too much power they are trying to kill our cup competition thats been running since 1914 so that they can replace it with a cup where they play against mexican teams so they can get chicano $$$.
        Our federation the USSF bent the knee to them and if MLS isn't even willing to give lower division teams even a few games against their teams they would never allow teams to move between leagues.
        I'm a season ticket holder for a team in the league you posted in the OP image because im sick of MLS's bullshit even though I have a team in my state.

        We don’t care for that concept, it’s always been about cheering the individual rather than the team to rise up the ranks to the top level. That’s specifically what I was doing the last time I attended a small club's match.

        Doesn’t mean they’re not relevant if there’s no pro/rel
        They have their own championship that teams aspire to win

        But the main point still stands: with pro/rel MLS would not have gotten nearly the capital they got and American soccer would be in a much worse place

    It's going to happen soon enough. It'll start with pro/rel between the divisions of USL, and then it'll connect to MLS eventually. Splitting MLS development teams form USL was a necessary step in the process.

    Before MLS, this was a barren wasteland. College and semi-pro regional leagues were what's left after NASL collapsed in the early 80s.

    Notice that from the original 10 MLS teams, only one is defunct today (NASL lasted about 15 years).

      The alternative to MLS isn’t some English style league system with pro/rel

      Pretty ironic that for the other two defunct teams, one was specifically created to appeal to Mexicans while the other was in Miami that now has the most globally talked about MLS team. And it would have probably gone belly up as well if it wasn’t being sustained entirely by glamour and then a league wide scheme to bring the worlds most famous player over. There is just no correlation between what people assume makes for a popular soccer team here (hispanics) and reality.

        Chivas USA was peak MLS moronation. Why the frick would Chis follow the B team when they can just larp as lifelongs for the real Chivas just like they do for L Tri?

        But I give MLS credit for learning the lesson and shutting down that stupidity.

        Miami Fusion was doomed to fail from the get. Just like today, they tried to appeal to the Hispanic community by signing aging legends. That lasted for a couple of seasons but once the novelty wore off, all that was left was c-tier level of play and a glorified HS stadium.

    MLS and USL are in a sort of pro/rel situation though, just based on financials instead of performance. My guess is that USL members mostly exist as a proof of concept that soccer is a viable business in their respective city. Like how the Portland Timbers made the jump from USL to MLS. If someone decides to pay for an MLS franchise in Detroit or Tampa, there's already an existing team with an existing fanbase and venue that you can buy out instead of having to start from scratch.
