    I like soccer, but the sport is hanging in there pretty well considering it's horrible history. Everyone here loves the world cup. And MLS is doing ok. Beckham won't save anything, but he helps keep people going to the games, which are entertaining when you do go. Beckham will do more by not playing than playing. He's got to do commercials. I think it's better sport than going to a baseball game to be honest.

    Adu was the best chance to market the game, and the DC united coach screwed that up. He was the real marketing piece and curiosity. But in Real Salt Lake he will never be seen. He needed to be in DC or NY.

    A world cup that is on national tv at a decent time, and that the public can rally around, does wonders for mls.

    MLS isnt even a league, its more like a.......retirement league, all the good players play across seas then when they are to old to dominate over there, they come here....MLS is an embarrassment to the US...

    Beckham is a marketers dream. Soccer will probably never be big in the USA but Beckham will be.

    He's a class act & will get a big following.

    MLS is much more than that, U.S. is ranked what, top 15. Do you think that happened without MLS. Do you think we made it all the way to top 6 before MLS? Before MLS we were were't even in the top 32. Maybe not even the top 64. The league is making a huge difference in our play. IF you think it is a minor league you are sadly mistaken. It's where the Americans play. And we are on the rise the soccer world. Adu is going to win the next world cup for us.

    MLS is a retirement league, no talent plays in that league, maybe its talent to us, but they stand no chance to Brazil and Italy..
