To the casual observer, MLS might strike him as a league lacking enthusiasm, the foundation of any popular sports league. Ives Galarcep of the North Jersey Herald pins the problem on the dearth of entertainers in Major League Soccer. If you had the pleasure this weekend of watching Ronaldinho, the world's best player, beat up on Athletic Bilbao, you know what he's talking about.

In fact, far too many MLS games are downright boring. Some will say that's not entirely fair-the league does boast the likes of Dwayne De Rosario and Christian Gomez in addition to having had great players like Marco Etcheverry and Mauricio Cienfuegos. But who replaces these guys?
