Just asking.
Its a legitamet question.

I guess a couple things make me believe that it could work if the following were to occur.

1) MLS is a legit soccer league. You will get decent players and watch decent players
2) It will not be locally financed.
3) It will not be ran by the regular group (Petrone , Ongaro etc)
4)Build a stadium 5,000-8,000 people and have this the hot ticket in town.

I think it can be done, just needs to be marketed right.
