However, I do think that the level of play in the MLS over the past 3-4 years has come up to the point where it's almost on par with the SPL and leagues of that ilk. That makes me at least start to question the value of having guys like Clarence Goodson, for example, playing in Norway.
SPL is pretty bad outside of the two big clubs. However, by playing in Europe the guys get to participate in Champion's League, and Europa even if their domestic league isn't that great (assuming their teams qualify).

Biggest problem with MLS is that the skill level just isn't very high... until they get high skill developing guys into the league and then going to Europe, it's going to remain a problem.
