I love promotion and relegation but it's a complete nonstarter in a league that is minimally financially viable as it is.

swedish league playing right now...the world football calendar typically does leagues aug-may and summer tournaments/qualification. so every country, even where it doesnt make sense, follows suit. except for the us.

i want it for all sports but it basically a death sentence for whoever gets relegated. nobody is buying tickets for a 2nd division mls team

nordic countries have to be real good at snow removal so they can probably get a clean pitch relatively quickly. theyll play through a smaller storm. the usmnt played in one against costa rica a few cycles back and it was basically an international incident (for them, didnt much register here)

She didn't want to join the North Korean professional women's soccer league?  They pay with coupons at the rice and dust commissary, and bootleg minis of Hennessy.
