I go to Galaxy games occasionally, and they are fantastic. Incredible atmosphere. But the simple fact remains that it just isn't close to the best league in the world. Americans are spoiled. We have the best Football league, the best basketball league, and the best baseball league - where the world's best come to play. The NHL will be the same when the lockout gets sorted out. The MLS is never going to be the best league and thus won't garner the attention the other 4 do.

Being the best is what brings in the money, and the MLS just doesn't have it.

And why does everyone keep bringing up the Sounders FC as an example? They are by far the exception. Using Seattle as an example of why the MLS is succeeding is like using Toronto as an example of the NHL making money. One team draws like that - the 2nd highest is the Galaxy at under 25K per game.
