Default MLS almost ready for play-off

My bro Luis Silva is carrying his team DC United to the cup, thats good news for the National Team since Luis Silva is wayyy better than players such as Davies, Suzi or Bedoya.

http://www.mlssoccer.com/video/2014/...august-31-2014

I have been also watching the CCC Champions League, MLS teams are doing good.

Seatle, DC, Kansas, Salt Lake and The Galaxy are looking strong.

I've enjoyed watching Dallas also. That's a physical bunch. I could see that style taking hold in the US.

I'm glad Jermaine Jones finally found a club.

I watched most of the DC United game yesterday. Still wish we would have brought Eddie Johnson to the world cup, especially since Altidore went down. Hindsight is 20-20.

He has looked pretty solid lately. He is dangerous when he wants to be, no doubt. Hamid is a beast.

Haha oh yeah, Jermaine Jones is home, now we just have to bring Tim Howard back.

Chicharito to Madrid? I think MLS should go after him as well.

Bringing Tim Howard back would be insane. It's time for MLS to loosen the purse strings and allow the owners to actually own the teams. They have done a fantastic job of keeping the league afloat, but now it's time to let them fly. If MLS had just one or two teams that could run the table in MLS and CCC, viewership would skyrocket. That would give the bandwagon fans a wagon to jump on, as well as underdogs for all the other people to cheer for.

Better TV contracts, more money, more home-grown talent.

... and I hope they do it FC Dallas style, in your face. Those guys are large and play with attitude. Watched them take down Salt Lake the other day with 10 men, that was impressive.

For now I think is ok to keep it safe financially but eventually we will move into that direction, bandwagon fans will have to wait a little and enjoy epl.

I like the way they have been doing it for now. Very important to keep the league on a strong financial footing. Eventually they need to re-align the schedule with the rest of the world. Tough to get generous TV contracts when your playoffs are competing with College and Pro Football games.

True that! I tried to find an EPL team to follow but I just can't bring myself to pull for some random squad. I guess that's why one reason I'm proud to be a Gamecock. We might not play the best football, but it's my home team nonetheless.

I love watching good soccer but I am in the same boat. I have no tie to any EPL team. I just can't claim one my team but I do watch

Hopefully Atlanta will jump in full force. But I do have ties to Dallas, that may end up being my squad. Especially after watching them stick it to RSL a man down the other week.

I wish we would scrap that minor league baseball garbage and grab a MLS feeder. We already have a top tier baseball facility and team to cheer for.

I still don't understand why you need a team to watch a sport everyweek.
I enjoy good sports.

I dont have an EPL team but I'll watch the marquee games (Everton-Chelsea one example).

I'm slowly trying with the MLS.

I assume you enjoy bad sports as well given the fact we are having this discussion as Gamecock fans. We certainly don't have a history of playing well, and reside in a league that is greatly inferior to the NFL.

I've been trying the EPL, I just can't get excited about foreigners (unless we're talking women's volleyball, send Sweden right over). Just me I guess.

Well that's different because I have a rooting interest.

I am a gamecock fan/alum. But If I wasn't and went to a different school without football, I probably wouldn't watch.
And I watch mostly the big games because they are relative to us.

I hope Blank knows that he needs to make some splashes and announcements this next year. I expect the first major announcements in summer 2015 and a "signing" to be early 2016.

Hopefully he picks a US young star instead of ANOTHER European leftover.

I'll be more willing to get MLS a chance when ATL gets going .. I wish Nashville would get a team down the road.

I ended going to the graveyard last night, we beat clemsux last night in ot, they almost got about 3 fights going, that was awesome.

I may come to more carolina games, they are not that good but they play with heart.
