Ljl soccercucks

For the 2017 season through April 3, which totals 15 games, MLS is averaging 261,667 viewers compared to 284,842 after 11 games during the same time period at the beginning of the 2016 season.

260k people nationwide watching this sps "league". Home shopping network gets more viewers

Just shut it down

The teams are popular and profitable on a local level, so there will be more of them

The problem with TV is that there are four leagues with huge TV coverage that are better (EPL, Mexican League, La Liga, Bundesliga)

the teams are profitable on a local level? I honestly doubt it. is there a link for this?


^ . . ^ El Gato ^ . . ^


9:02 PM - June 18th, 2017

I buy this. League is set up as a loss leader allowing local teams to grow and experiment. Will find link.

9:05 PM - June 18th, 2017

Here you go. Most teams turn a real profit or a tiny loss. The issue is that the league has significant issues and ultra-lucrative tv deals have not materialized. MLS may have to go OTT. NYC, Chicago, and Toronto are the only teams who lost more than $5 mil and could be lots of reasons for that.

Cr. Your salary is pre decided and you have to play for the team that drafted you. But it's better than hustling for $45k.

All else equal, would you rather play soccer or be a faggot paper pusher who gladly lets Ari rail him raw just for the opportunity to be staffed on an "interesting" matter?

Work backwards from there.

League seems to be pretty healthy. Gates are good. As long as they have that it's not going anywhere.


blisss


9:12 PM - June 18th, 2017

Just not gaining traction in TV. Newer teams are buoying gate numbers league wide, most of the original teams are struggling in that department. Think the lack of a very recent World Cup has hurt both gate and TV this year. But I agree the league is pretty healthy for a US soccer league (NASLOL?) and it's here to stay. Going to cash in big in the 2026 USA/Mex/Canada WC.

9:15 PM - June 18th, 2017

EPL ratings in the US were also down this year, probably because the average fan isn't as aware of soccer three years after the last World Cup. Russia next year should help

Its definitely been improving in quality as well. I watch regularly now because my team (TFC) is killing it. Compared to even five years ago the players are much better overall and the best players are better. Better players seem to be coming over and a few years earlier in their careers than they used to. And clubs are slowly starting to develop and sell off their own talent.

It'll be a major milestone when MLS teams are winning CONCACAF Champion's League consistently and that's just past the horizon.

Once europhiles and Mexicans get over their prejudice toward the league it'll be golden.

10:33 PM - June 18th, 2017

Lol actually MLS was better in the late 90s. DC United and LA Galaxy won the concacaf champions league back then


Jo$h Hartnettt


10:17 AM - June 19th, 2017

it was the "champions cup", and it only had eight teams. and you would only play four games max including the final. also the winner didn't go on to the world club cup until 2005. they killed that and introduced the the champions league in 2008 with 16 teams. now its harder to win, there's a group stage, home and aways, and liga mx teams put more effort in to it.

Its a highly localized sport; teams from pretty much all over draw fans. Texas might be an exception.

Nah, Texas teams do well. But they have way more competition for things like tv.

not sure why you wouldn't include basketball on that list. but when i hear people say "it's a regional sport" and bring up hockey they always mean it's only really popular in canada/rust belt/northeast/midwest

Soccerfag here....this is totally random, its like how many TVs were left on the station when the game came on or how many female bartenders turned it to that not knowing what it was.

MLS is almost entirely about going in person.
