    The one comment most of us can agree on at this point is the development of youth players in the U.S. has a gap that is at the end of the DA age limit 18/19. With improving player identification and development, the gap between DA and the MLS must be closed. Enter the NASL and possibly the USL teams which are generally becoming MLS affiliated or owned League2 teams. These 'SL teams are ideal for player rehabilitation from injury, bubble MLS 1st team players that need play time to work on known issues and gap players from the DA program that will get their first introduction to pro-level training and play. Slow but sure progress as long as the unaffiliated league2 teams don't try to push there way into the MLS on the cheap.

    No doubt the lower divisions are going to play a huge role. NASL is a positive to the landscape as long as they accept their place and coexist separately from MLS instead of always trying to compete. A merger is their best bet, and that could be a possibility way down the line if they ever have more than just a handful of stable clubs that actually have value. That means they have facilities, a fan base, and player development systems. This bs of NASL trying to beat out MLS in same markets and challenging MLS on legal and intellectual merits while they flail around with 8-12 teams, many of which are on rocky ground, ain't gonna cut it though.
