I mean, I'll watch games if they're on but the European leagues are so much more entertaining. With Fox Soccer and ESPN showing more games I've been able to follow the European leagues more. I believe NBC Sports has a deal with the BPL next season too so that should be awesome.
It's amazing how MLS is thought of more highly over in Europe compared to how it is thought of in its own country.
15 years ago, MLS was garbage. 7 years ago, it was slightly better but still bad. 4 years ago it was slightly better.
Now it's pretty solid.. Which is why you see so many of the European teams struggle when they play MLS teams during the summer and also going after so many different MLS players.
It's not the EPL yet but no league in the world is... It's certainly better than the SPL (coming from a Celtic supporter) and several of the other leagues over there. Keeps getting shown clearly by supposed EPL stars coming over here and performing like **** regardless of age.
