Don't forget the almighty dollar

Kevin, you are an idiot if you actually believe everything you wrote. I figure half of your diatribe was to get soccer fans upset, which you did.

Soccer is a great sport, but I won't ask you to like it or understand it. Frankly we are better off without the ignorant. But what I will say is that until there is real money in proffessional soccer, you will never see kids progress for long term in it. Soccer is a means to get out of the ghettos and barrios of the world. In the US it is primarily Football and basketball that dominate that space. If soccer can compete on the salary level, our youth will stay on playing into college and proffessional ranks. At the moment that is not happening, maybe it will, maybe it won't time will tell. But I will agree with another post, compared to when the US hosted the last world cup and now, a heck of lot more people are interested and are watching. Which makes me for one happy.
