In Topic: Hamlett is in so far over his head

The vast majority of teams in the league aren't playing that game. Most American leagues have a handful of teams with owners who are intent on spending as much as possible to try to be win (NFL has Kraft and Jones, MLB has the Dodgers and Yankees, NBA has the Lakers and Mavericks) while the majority of owners just want to make a profit off their investment and disinterested in winning. Even European soccer leagues, the vast majority of teams are not even really trying to win titles. 


I mean, just in the Eastern Conference we have teams like Toronto, Inter Miami, New York City, Atlanta, and maybe soon Chicago who are willing to spend the money.

I don't think I get why people try to blame all of these executives who keep trying and failing at drawing people.  


I think you could have a total genius but it's just that MLS hasn't fully taken in this area.  Too many things around here to compete with, and if people like soccer, they still tend to be Euro Snobs.   Really think that's it.



I used to think it was winning but it's not even that. (although that does help a little)

There is no one thing that would change things but multiple. Red Bulls winning is part of it but in this market obviously wasn't going to be the "one thing"

We ain't splitting league revenue among 40 teams nor adding pro/rel

Because we are 2nd to last in the league in spending. 

Yep. That is my point. Bet we are close to last in marketing/promo spend as well.
