When did you start following pro soccer in the US? As in going to games and/or watching on tv, when available? Inspired by FlashMan’s most excellent thread in this forum on the different perspectives of MLS old-timers and newer fans (which you should visit if you haven't already), I’m just curious about how long MLS fans around here have been fans of US pro soccer in general. I think it’s interesting to see what rough proportion of MLS fans are more likely to be fans from back in the day who are just glad to finally have a high-level league in the US again, or fans who came to MLS before or around the same time that they became familiar with other leagues or competitions, or maybe something else. Maybe it’s irrelevant, but as FlashMan’s thread I think points out, you may have different views of MLS based on what sort of soccer, if any, you’ve spent most of your life following.
