    Sporting News reporting that MLS has helped CONCACAF countries compete and improve. Costa Rica seems like a legit power.

    The article was even more poignant after US elimination tonight, Sounder player scoring one of the two goals keeping us out. Disgraceful result for US.

    Although I'd disagree with the last paragraph. It isn't helping US talent.

    I guess you're right as displayed tonight. Watched the game with my son to get him hyped for the World Cup...fortunately like many US fans he is far more interested in Real Madrid.

    Columbus to Austin? If true or of it pans out could or will negatively impact San Antonio's MLS bid.

    I always thought that Columbus was a strange place to have a team. Would be a shame if they moved though, imagine spending the last 10/15 seasons watching them for the team to just go somewhere else.

    Yeah, Columbus seemed like a novelty - Green Bay. Unfortunately demand seems so high for a franchise that Crew owner can leverage (or black mail) public financing. I presume that the 12 cities looking for expansion teams are precluded from negotiations with exisiting franchises otherwise there would be a bidding war for Crew.

    Phoenix has stared their media campaign to push for a franchise;

    I figure Phx will get a franchise and Hibs will visit during the 2022 World Cup winter break

    Out of 12 cities bidding for four new MLS franchises Nashville has been chosen as the first. Maybe the success of Atlanta in their first MLS season helped the choice for another Southeast team.

    Sacramento gets snubbed. I think the MLS wants to see who else can get their act together before risking Sacramento. Possibly St Louis or San Diego.

    Hopefully this is good news for Phoenix, they need western teams, and are waiting to see who else emerges before making any commitments. With Austin maybe canceling out San Antonio and Sac being snubbed, opening there for Phoenix Rising FC.
