    I was MLS biggest fan since 08, I wanted to watch American soccer grow and blossom but after this crew news i am completely done with this joke of a league. The crew are one of the few teams with MLS and US soccer history and yet Precourt and the league think its ok to just move one of the teams that propped MLS up when it was at its darkest days. This league does not care about its fans and feels very contrived and manufactured and it has for a long time. Thanks a lot MLS and American soccer, you are losing more fans by the minute and continue to push away your most loyal customers.

      Tim, since you’ve been very supportive of MLS over the years in the comments section here, your comment (sincerely) is very damning.

      On top of that, with MLS being so intertwined with the US Men’s National Team, it appears that soccer fans in the US are suffering from a MLS/USMNT hangover which can be seen by the poor TV ratings.

        Yes it all makes sense and unfortunately the doubters have been proved right. I can no longer support something that feels like a WWE event where i have no control of the outcome. I wanted American soccer to work so bad and there is still hope it might in the future. Its crushing because i relate more to American teams than any team i will never see live. MLS looks at the crew as holding the league down by seeing the numbers in Atlanta, Orlando, etc but the one thing everyone forgets is that most of these markets are new and still have the new car smell. Lets talk in 15 years after highs and lows, losing seasons and fan bases losing interest. The metrics show that the lowest attended teams are the same originals that propped them up when the league was close to extinction. Soccer and sports in general are fun and fans grow close to teams but if they can move the crew they can move anyone,

      Tim, I can understand your feelings, i.e. situation with the Crew. For me, to this day I believe MLS, Don Garber & Anschutz Entertainment Group “conspired” to move the Earthquakes out of San Jose to Houston. They used the excuse of issues with Spartan Stadium, attendance, etc, etc, when all along it was really about having a team in Houston.

      I still cannot (and will not) acknowledge that the Dynamo won the MLS cup in 2006. That was the Earthquakes Championship. I attended about half of all Clash/Quakes home games each season from 1996 to 2005.

      Since the start of the 2006 season (year Quakes were moved) it has soured me on MLS. It wasn’t only the move of the Quakes, I found the quality of play, players and overall chaotic/sloppiness on the field & product a turn-off. The decline actually started in 2004. For me, I found the league went backwards starting in 2005 when compared to 1996-2004.

      I was hoping NASL could be the league or at least be an alternative to watching MLS. Well, NASL made some poor decisions a few years ago and now USSF (plus IMO, MLS too) are working to get rid of NASL. I don’t believe MLS will improve or change beyond what it is now. Too many in control want to keep the status quo.

        Exactly….to keep it simple there are too many hands in one pot that are working for and against others. Its very sad.
