So here is the one-and-only thread on this forum dedicated to the pros and cons of ditching the current system in the United States and adopting promotion and relegation between different leagues/divisions. Everybody is allowed to post here. Anything I deem relevant to the conversation is applicable. As the moderator of this forum, I am the only person who gets to decide what is appropriate for this thread. That means that I don't want previous conflicts between posters from other threads, forums, or social media platforms carried over here. On the other hand, the topic of pro/rel is going on outside this thread and outside BigSoccer.com, and many relatively well-known people in the US soccer community are involved in it. References to such people and other conversations, social media statements, etc. are absolutely part of the conversation here. Finally--if you cannot make the distinction between having your ideas attacked, criticized, or even mocked; versus being personally attacked, this thread is not for you. If I find the time, I might go through the last thread on this subject and asset-mine some of the more level-headed posts for and against the concept. Others are free to do so as well. Or, start fresh and lay out your case here. Keeping in mind, of course, that any and all posts in thread are subject to analysis, criticism, and so on.
