"Hate" is a bit dramatic. A lot of people don't follow MLS for a variety of reasons. They may not like soccer, they may not like sports, they may not have a local MLS club.

MLS does not have the biggest media presence.

And do you see the national team win much these days? I recall the B/C team, composed of more MLS guys, was the first to win at Azteca. Then Jurgen's Euros dropped the ball in Honduras. Yeah, huge disparity there...

I also want to know why other sports fans hate the supporting culture in MLS and why they don't want this culture to be in their sports

By "supporting culture" do you mean MLS fans or some kind of booster club?

as evidenced by this thread, it's not so much the soccer we hate, it's the soccer fans

I hate how some teams put "FC" at the end of their name. The Bears and Raiders are a football club, Seattle Sounders are not, they are a Soccer Club.

Weird, two posts from people who should clearly not be here giving their dislike of football.
