Default Thank you David Beckam

For putting MLS on the map. No other athlete on the planet would have done what you did bro, mucho respect!!!





http://www.mlssoccer.com/news/articl...ls-cup-matchup

OK. Is everyone ready? MLS Cup 2012. Saturday, December 1, at 4:30pm ET, on ESPN, Telefutura, TSN, and RDS, with a live chat on MLSsoccer.com. The LA Galaxy vs. the Houston Dynamo.
And in case you haven't heard -- which, frankly, seems impossible -- the match will be David Beckhamís grand finale after six years in MLS. In a press conference on Thursday, Beckham bid farewell and reiterated his intent to stay involved with MLS after he is gone.
"Just because Iím not playing here anymore after the weekend, my commitment stays the same and I will do anything to keep these players coming over like Robbie Keane, like Thierry Henry. I want to see this league continue to grow."
Don't expect to see it grow with the New York Cosmos, as has been rumored. "That's definitely not true," he said. Same goes for for recent rumors linking him to AS Monaco: "I heard about Monaco on the way to training this morning from a friend in London who said: 'I hear you are going to Monaco.' That was the first I'd heard of that."
And he's definitely not headed to Chelsea, if manager Rafa Benitez's assessment is anything to go by.
So, again, your guess as to where he's going is as good as ours. Maybe even as good as his. "I've got some interesting and exciting options on the table," Beckham said. "I am very flattered by some of the options that I've got. I still feel I can play and I'm not considering retiring."

A lot more people in Houston watch College Football.
Especially when a large percentage of their population are LSU and A&M fans (SEC schools)

Last years MLS cup got a .8 rating nationally.Last years SEC championship got a 7.4.

I'm an old guy, and it took me a long time to understand the dynamics of the game, simply because I didn't watch it enough.
The World Cup and the Olympics has changed that. Still not a fan of MLS, but a whole lot better fan of soccer in general.

Look at demographics, not shocking they do well in those areas. DC does well, too. It doesn't mean the average person cares about MLS.

Donovan, Keane, and Beckham are World Class players. Fun to watch those three.

I know it is tough for some people to mentally understand the way the match flows, but those guys make the game fun to watch.

You're right they aren't, mostly the northern cities. (NYC, Boston, DC, Chicago etc)
LA in that too.

And I'm not hating on soccer, i like the sport.just showing the differences in ratings from last year, Nationally.

I believe if the MLS wanted a large national audience they shouldn't have put it on the same time as the SEC championship game. Which will be shown on CBS.

No offense, but I think the fact that your post title that misspells Beckham's name is pretty telling about the state of soccer in the United States.

I love soccer, but most people here dont give a crap.

college sports are more popular in places where there is no pro sport, aka the south.

you are right, mls will lose some ratings to the sec championship, but not as much as you think.
