If you Google it there are plenty of similar cases of MLS doing the same thing.

You guys heard about the end of the Jermaine Jones fiasco, right. The drew out of a hat which team got him...MLS is run like a fantasy league among a bunch of college friends. Do the people that run this league have zero foresight? Also, it is a bit alienating to those true fans of the teams when your team loses by picking out of a hat.

I read that. Utterly bewildering that his free agency was handled that way. Another reason MLS is among the laughingstocks of the football world.

Another guy that just says what he thinks is Bruce Arena, this was an enjoyable read. He was basically crapping on the owners of the teams.

Good stuff.

I like this quote:

"Parity translates to mediocrity. It doesn’t translate to excellence."

absolutely true. This is why MLS teams can't really compete in the CCL or against European teams.

My favorite quote when asked why the signing of Kljestan did not work:

“Because they are children and there have to be adults in the process, and we didn’t have enough of them. I think we are back into the old days in the league when the rules are somewhat arbitrary. Hopefully we will get that straightened out in the offseason.”

I think first you should try to find the reason that why people don't watch MLS. Without getting a proper reason, you can'tfind any solution of it.
