    its a pyramid scheme desperately trying to piggyback off plastics watching la liga and EPL

    imagine being so desperate to emulate the barca/Madrid rivalry you create something as moronic as El traffico and try to pull it off with a straight face

      You keep pretending as if MLS is a pyramid scheme when the teams lose money when most sports teams in the world lose money

      >you create something as moronic as El traffico
      That's a joke moron

      Like calling the Iowa-Iowa State rivalry El Assico. Not to mention the fact that the El Classico name is actually a rip off of the Argentine Superclásico anyways

    Because Soul is something that is exclusively tied to Europe. It's built on obsessing over Roman influence and unmotivated laziness in maintaining things that were built to last.
    Soul is paving the same road over and over with inferior materials for authenticity, soul is going to tiny shops where lazy people drag themselves off their ass to serve you, soul is serving the meat next to the cheese and bread and laughing that Americans are inclined to turn these into a Sandwich instead of enjoying the 500 year traditions that the salami, cheese and bread represent and the full flavors.
    Soul is only for lazy Europeans who never move from their childhood home. Soul is for the Brit whose never eaten anything but a pie, Soul doesn't exist in America, even New England, New York and the Mid Atlantic are just dense emulations of Europe

    the major league rugby competition had an owner that named his teams the "austin gilgronis" and "la giltinis" after himself (adam gilchrist) and the drinks. those are obviously 2 of the dumbest, most moronic names imaginable but i have a hard time deciding if they are any worse than the "st. louis CITY" and "real salt lake" and "fc" shit.

      Idk
      As much as I find Real Salt Lake cringy, it's so much better than [City Name] FC/SC

        At least Real Salt Lake's owner said it was a direct copy of Real Madrid

        What I don't like is how low effort the naming is, the last 11 expansion teams use the FC/SC format. Portland was the last team with a regular name.

          The MLS went through phases. First it was the American naming phase with the Galaxy, Burn, Fire, Metrostars, etc. Then that gave way to half-foreign names. Real Salt Lake, Sporting Kansas City, Houston Dynamo. Obviously rip-offs but still unique in how much of rip-offs they were. And now it's in the full Euro LARP not-even-trying phase where every team is United, City, FC, or SC. Inter Miami is actually a call back to that second phase, which makes them stand out when put in a list of the new teams over the last ten years: Orlando City, New York City, Minnesota United, Atlanta United, Los Angeles FC, FC Cincinnati, Inter Miami, Nashville SC, Austin FC, Charlotte FC, St Louis City, San Diego FC. Montreal Impact also changed their name to CF Montreal.

      It's plastic, single-entity organization wherein My Little Sawker (tm) owns the teams and the "owners" are actually partners who've bought into My Little Sawker.

      Unlike My Little Sawker, the Japs took their time to establish a proper pyramid and that there would be enough fan support and demand to have pro/rel.

        The entity structure is just a loophole for anti-trust law.

        It has nothing to do with competition or how teams are managed

      The Japanese league isn't new
      They just reorganized in the 90s
      Would be like calling the English league new because the EPL was founded in 92
