Yeah I think people mix that up as well a bit to much. Soccer is catching up in popularity. It shows that in the poll. But most soccer fans in this country are not watching the MLS. They are watching the European leagues and Mexicans are watching Liga Mx. MLS, while improving, still has a way to go to catch MLB.

Can confirm. I watch Serie A and Premier. Have never been able to stomach more than a half of MLS.
