My question is: Why does a pro league have to be created in the USA top-to-bottom? Investors decide that they might be able to make money out of it. Then create franchises in the markets they think are best suited. If it doesn’t work they cut their losses and the whole thing collapses. Why can’t people organize themselves in clubs, compete against each other and if enough people watch them, earn some money. I know most American sport fans are usually fans of their local college or high-school teams which means there is not that much space for pro sports. But in Europe every town with 20 000 has at least a semi-pro team. Why can’t cities of 500 000 or more support sport clubs in the States?
