Major League Soccer
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
Minor League Soccer (MLS) is a semi-professional soccer league based in the United States and sanctioned by the United States Soccerball Federation (U.S. Soccer). The league comprises 19 teams, 16 in the U.S. and three in Canada. MLS represents the top tier of the American and, even more embarrassingly, Canadian soccer pyramids. The organization is setup to pretend that the country is part of the "world's game" and functions as a retirement home for former players from around the world.
MLS was founded when David Beckham arrived in 2007 attempting to attract interest of the sport in the United States. Really, it was some bullshit excuse knowing that he had no fucking chance to make it at Real Madrid, but he in his prima donna self wanted to be a tyrant and juice out MLS and suck it dry.
Thierry Henry is here cause he likes to vacation in New York and needed to kill time on Saturday afternoons. Signing in 2010 he reminded anyone that cared that after three years, MLS is not dead.
MLS has a closed shop tyrant structure of sheer communism so that the death of the league is prolonged to about 10 years. Unlike the NASL which lasted for the two years Pele played for the New York Cozmos or the ASL which was organized by expats swimming across the pond for freedom, before realizing that baseball was an easier way to call yourself an athlete and not actually do shit.
The league is made up of 18 teams that are actually franchises, but the leagues called "clubs" in a shameless effort to look aesthetic. All is negated with the mental deficient management of the league, they intend to have all the teams in the world move to the US and be the biggest league ever. When they have taken the "world's game" from the world they plan to repackage it and sell it back for eight times it's value even though they stole it.
The league ignores standard protocols such as promotion and relegation in order to line the pockets of the league itself. It was only after pressure from people who knew about the game that they began to keep time like the rest of the world. Thankfully, it has only managed to irk the lone fan in the United States, and the only American who is aware of the method's existence.
edit "Friendly" matches
The primary reason MLS is still in business after five years is that they manage to pay top European football teams to send their sixth string squads across the pond so that 51 people show up to games. Generally, the top MLS teams (meaning they've tied more than lost) field their starters and lose 7-0 to the likes of Man You.
edit International competition
Until the six American soccer fans demanded that MLS teams give a shit about the KONKOOKHAF Champions League, no teams really cared, let alone, knew of its existence. Consequently, everyone in Mexico and Central America was proud that their reserves could be MLS U-14 teams. Until 2011, all MLS teams that won the MLS Cup, a crapshoot piece of shit, or the Supporters' Shield, which those six fans adore, or this US Open Cup non tennis bullshit, were forced by Chuck Blazer to sail to Central America to play in this KONKOOKHAF Tournament.
That all changed in 2011 when Real Salt Lake reminded us that the tournament is actually exists and reached the finals, and pathetically lost. They did make SportsCenter, being the first thing from Utah on the program in 21 years, when the basketball team from that land were humiliated by Michael Jordan.
Ever since the Major League Soccer founded they have lost over 678 quadrillion dollars, at a rate of 600 million per second trying to pay for David Beckham's retirement house. Since the league has issues paying for his cross country flights so he can play for each franchise, they continously have to take loans from SUM.
Also, the league gets jeered at for Making Little Stadiums, another terminology when referencing MLS. The arenas, aptly named soccer-specific stadiums sit about 18 to 30 people so that it looks more hostile with seven or eight people in the stands.
edit Hipster soccer fans
MLS tries to create fan culture in a family friend setting. So it's like going to your local high school or college Amurican throwball game with obnoxious drunk twenty something hipsters trying to think they're trendy and hip going to a soccer game.
Hipsters, which are predominate in Seattle and Portland help their teams excel in attendance. In fact, the entire population of both cities go to their club's respective games. About 370,000 people on average go to a Flounders game, whereas 186,000 people go to a Loggers match.
