MLS will never be a top league if it does not sort out the following problems. 1. Playing games on fields with football lines (MetroStars, Dallas, etc.), artificial turf, and little league fields (San Jose). It is almost impossible to play an attractive game of soccer with these conditions. 2. Dumb, gutless referees who do not have the courage to enforce the rules of the game, and let big name players off the hook. Examples include Mathis contantly complaining to the referee during games without punishment, and Donovan who should have been sent off today in the game against the Metros. 3. Getting more skilled players on the field, especially in the back. There are too many backs in MLS that are just big goons with very little skill, and the referees let the goons get away with murder.
