    Boy, that escalated quickly.

    I guess they saw the writing on the wall, and realized NASL was probably not going to provide that content next year.

    And I was just about to speculate about TV for the league.

    So for 2016, the TV landscape was (for most of the weeks):
    • MLS, Fridays, one or two matches in Spanish
    • MLS, Sundays, two matches (ESPN2, FS1)
    • NASL, sporadic matches on BeIn, CBS Sports Net; speculation was mostly time-buys
    • NWSL, sporadic matches on FS1 (usually Sundays, after the MLS)
    I was hoping for some regular broadcast matches for USL, but that would be trying for too much. I was thinking Saturdays pre-college football; Thursdays after CFB starts.
