    Ah. It will take decades before the us is good at soccer. It’s a game of skill development that requires you to pluck the best when they are barely walking. It isn’t a game like basketball or football where you can pick it up and have a good career because you are born big and fast.

      Yup. Soccer stars are tied to a club at birth.

            Yep.

            Breaking every record -- never had an expansion team this successful in pro sports. It is crazy.

            To be fair, they had a really generous draft that allowed Vegas to select a player from every team with teams only allowed to protect a dozen players. Vegas did a GREAT job of building a team out of that draft.

            Also, it looks like Seattle is getting an expansion team in 2020. Makes sense -- the league is currently 31 teams. Hard to divide a prime number into even conferences.

              I've never heard of anything like that.
