What They're Saying: Arthur Blank

"Some of the major markets have not performed the way the league would like them to. They are being very selective about the expansion markets now. Not only in terms of just the market but in terms of the capability of the owners and whether or not they are willing to make the investments; not only the financial investments but the investments of energy, passion, thought, etc. to get the things done they have to get done."

-- Atlanta United owner Arthur Blank, while acknowledging MLS's increased standing among soccer leagues around the world, says the league most continue to do things better. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
