Very astute and brave post from a Sounders fan. The Galaxy have been awesome for the league and they haven't dominated as one might expect either since Beckham's arrival. If NY and LA wind up winning a few more championships than other clubs, I think the league can live with that...as long as there is still variance (LA in 2005, LA in 2011.......if that had changed to LA in 2005, NY in 2008, LA in 2011- I think in general people could live with that). We also have Cup competitions which are/can be considered championships.. This will p*ss hard-cores here off, but I don't MLS is at the stage where winning the championship is that important relative to more mature leagues (for attendance during the year). That is still more a function of the blocking/tackling of selling the sport and individual games in your market. So if it so happens that there is a more concentrated period of NY and LA championships, I don't think it kills the league either. Of course, no one wants to see 30 years of that. In the next 10-15 years, I think the benefits of having NY and LA as strong markets in the league outweigh the downsides. I wonder-truly- how long Chivas will be in LA anyway.
