“[MLS] is not technically one of the best in the world but, undoubtedly, it has improved its level with the signing of great players and one important thing is that it is very competitive. For us it was important to have Julio Cesar playing and he’ll be playing in a competitive league."

-- Brazil’s technical director Carlos Alberto Parreira on Brazil's starting goalkeeper Julio Cesar joining Toronto FC. Parreira coached MLS's MetroStars in 1997. (Bloomberg)

    Who seriously believes that MLS teams could avoid relegation if they were dropped into the "Championship", otherwise known as the English second division? Real question is whether any of them would even challenge for promotion from the third division.

    From a competitive and technical standpoint "Promotion/Relegation" is the absolute "key" in the MLS and "all" the Leagues in the country. Without it "we have what we have...'not to good!" Business wise is a whole different bowl of wax. "1" League $$$$ far apart from the other 2! Amazing, we have Economic Professors in this country who think they know the "game" but have "no clue!" The young American player...the dreams they have...that's what we should be thinking about! Solution: "Get your asses to college and get an education!
