MLS: a Soccer League without a Soccer Voice
A few names to consider: Dick Walsh, Ken Macker, Bob Cousy, David Prouty, Howard Samuels, Doug Logan. All of them, within the past 50 years, have been Commissioners of American pro-soccer leagues. And not one of them had more than the flimsiest knowledge of the sport. Fittingly, none of them lasted very long in their soccer jobs.

"I think the MLS have probably made their own problem. New York is owned by Manchester City. Frank Lampard is playing at Manchester City and doing very well. Manchester City own the world. And I think Lampard being part of a title-winning team is a little higher up in their priorities. I don't see how the MLS can solve this in the future. Perhaps they will have to slap Frank on the wrists and tell him he has to go to New York. But I don't think that's going to happen."
