The NFL needed this game to start its rise to being a legit sports league. MLS needs A similar game, one where stars are playing against each other in a prime time game. The game goes to penalties and the nation watches as the star player from one team scores the winning penalty shot. That is what MLS needs, our league, our fans, and our players suffer from an inferiority complex. We have to defend our league even when we know that the infrastructure and management is bush league. That is a fallacy of unabashed support.
