This year has been more about articulating the strategic vision. What we're putting into place are the things we need to do in those four areas to ensure we're on the right track over the next 10 years. So at the start of next season we can talk about what the tactics are that we hope to embark on over the next number of years. This year, 2012, was about year one, get the strategic plan in place and get alignment on that plan. Then years two through 10 we'll be executing on that plan. At some point I'll show you the plan, because it's pretty cool. And the strategic process if pretty cool, too, how it starts with vision and goes down to strategy, breaks out on players and marketing and comes together with Soccer United Marketing. It's Harvard Business School-type stuff.

If they could get usain Bolt to debut for the Galaxy, that would help. Also, MLS salaries need to be huge.

I hope MLS gains more traction. I would be much more interested in a global sport than the NFL. College football/basketball are really the only sports I watch. I would probably engage in some MLS if they were ever to get on par with the better leagues across the globe. The few MLS games I've watched were definitely not as impressive as the few European games I've watched. But 99% of all soccer viewing in my household takes place during World Cup, of which, I don't miss televised US games.

It would take more than a Harvard business plan, more like a national cultural awakening, the mls won't get the players until America starts giving a shit and America won't give a shit until we get the players

I can name one team in the MLS, the LA Galaxy. Unless the Tampa Rowdies are in the MLS- I do see ads for that around here.

I can name one player, that is David Beckham...and mainly because of his personal life, not his soccer.

I have no clue what the difference is between FIFA, the MLS, and the EPL...and I only know the acronym EPL from seeing it in this thread. I know FIFA because of video game titles.

I couldn't begin to tell you if the league is separated into conferences or divisions.

I have no clue when the season begins or ends.

I don't know how many games are in a season.

I couldn't guess at the price of attending a game.

I think there are more of sports fans in America like myself and I'm thankful. I don't care to know the answers for these things I don't know.

I know soccer is the most popular sport in the world. In America, it isn't...we found better things to do.

For me, it's hard to get into, because I can't handle that much disappointment "oh my god he's about to score, AWW! Crap, that close."

What I find more interesting about the quote is the confidence of the Harvard alumni.

"We will do it in 10 years, is Harvard stuff" Like is guaranteed that it will work.



Typical arrogant American "If we want to, we will do it."

Those are big words, like most of you say, the reality is, the big majority of Americans don't give a crap about MLS, but yet we have this Harvard guy saying most of you will in 10 years...
