What They're Saying: David Carter

"Chivas in the L.A. market is beyond an afterthought. I think even most soccer fans aren't aware that they are in this market. So I think there's going to have to be a substantial reboot, and you can't do that quickly. Certainly, they've atrophied over the last few years to the point where if they take a year off, it's going to be like 'if a tree falls in the forest.'"

    MLS is insane to keep a 2nd club in LA. LA can barely support 1 club. The Galaxy never sellout in their beautiful stadium in perfect weather.

    With so many new cities, with lots of hungry fans, ready to embrace an MLS club, just move them there. Dont be knuckleheads, and I'm from LA!
