World Cup Buzz at related • 2 views

MLS Commissioner Don Garber re-opened his dispute with Jurgen Klinsmann last week when he said that the league would continue to pursue U.S. national team players regardless of what the national team coach thought of that approach.

One thing I get the pleasure of having on what feels like a fairly regular basis these days is talks about MLS expansion.

Instead of slowly transitioning the league's marketing to its new superstars and priming the way for its new high-profile clubs, the top office has instead been sidetracked by controversy. The Frank Lampard "will he or won't he" and "was he ever" has again thrust the league into the spotlight as "the retirement league" and not a growing global alternative to the traditional European power leagues.
