What does DC United toying around with signing Rooney say about the state of MLS? :lol:

That the MLS isn't as good as the top level (Premier League) of English soccer. I thought that was obvious. Is anyone making the case that the MLS is as good as the best club league in the world? :?

Bunch of whiners in that article. He's a name and he could sell tickets. The MLS isn't a top tier club league (there only ones that are are the EPL, La Liga, Serie A, and the Bundesliga) and has never pretended that they were. This is where big name players at the end of their career go to. He won't be there more than a year or two but he might sell some tickets for what's currently a pretty bad team.

Sounds like youre making an argument that Premier is better than Bundesliga, though

Don't think he was arguing that - but, it's not a ridiculous argument.

From top to bottom it could be - but like Skelly said, it would at least be an argument.

I'm a fan and I told friends about this bid a year ago...

a World Cup with venues like Azteca and the Rose Bowl all in one?

We may not win it (or even be in it) but a "North American" World Cup would kick anybody else's ASS

Since we’re hosting together, does this mean the Mexican fans will not throw bags of piss at the US players?

I had a crappy wifi connection at the time, and couldn't watch the video, so didn't know who they were. Course the article fails to mention they were Mexican. Typical shoddy journalism..Just read the comments section, which will always set the record straight as far as race when the media fails to..

Super that North American (mostly the US) got the 2026 bid. Almost ridiculous that Morrocco almost won it, though. Of the 19 stadiums needed for the World Cup, Morocco was going to build 14 of them from scratch and then still have to make significant additions to the other 5. Thankfully, logic set in and the bid went to North America as it should. I think everyone realized the amount of money that would be made from it (I think every country in FIFA is set to get at least $50M from that World Cup as a result) and it became an easy choice. Should be a good show.

I guess the good news here is that Trump can’t pull us out if the players kneel for the anthem or such, as this will be a year after his second term ends.

The bad: he still has six and a half years to get FIFA to rescind the offer. :D

We’re going to miss these days of entertainment.

Saw my only World Cup game at the Rose Bowl in 94 - Sweden vs Cameroon. A great game for my straight friends to be at - warm, sunny with a lot scantily clad Swedish women around.

Doesn't the host country automatically get a bid?
