(ESPN)   For those who didn't see it, last night the MLS All-Star team beat the reigning European champions, which means that Landon Donovan is automatically president of FIFA and Sepp Blatter has to admit that Koman Coulibaly was paid off   ( divider line

This is why I hate the MLS All Star game.

If MLS wins, it's just a meaningless friendly. Let's forget the fact that these MLS players had 0-2 practices with each other before the match and are playing against teams that regularly practice together.

If MLS loses like they did against Manchester United the past two years, the league sucks and is poor quality.

Is MLS one of the top leagues in the world? No. It's only 16 years old though. It keeps getting better, and is a hell of a lot more fun to watch in person instead of waking up at the crack of dawn to cheer on some team from a country you've never been to.

Mostly because it's an inferior league that gets shoved down our throats constantly, much like the women's game. And we get accused of being bandwagon glory hounds for refusing to switch our allegiances from teams we've supported for decades to whatever crap North American league happens to be extant at the moment. MLS is just another word for NASL as far as I'm concerned.

Wanna know how I got into soccer? By watching MLS.

And BTW, after this season is complete, MLS will have existed longer than NASL. And unlike NASL at this point, the league is growing, not failing.

Chelsea fan who watches MLS. I'm glad the All-Stars won. I will never understand the need of US-based soccer fans to shiat on MLS. I am pumped to watch Thierry and Cahill on the Red Bulls for the balance of the season.

expobill: they kicked the ball down the pitch too much in the last 15 minutes trying to equalize.

Could you imagine the horror? Pushing the ball up the field to try and gain a free kick, force a corner or get in behind while down a goal? Well, that's just foolishness. Why clearly it makes more sense to pass the ball around passively and try to draw THE TEAM THAT'S ALREADY WINNING out. Surely that will work, right?

and the fans yelled something derogatory after every goal kick

Ruffians, I say! Haaaaaaarumph.

The MLS has done really well against the EPL so far in this touring season. The only game the MLS has lost has been in penalties.

I was at the Crew vs Stoke City game on Tuesday and it was a ton of fun. It was especially fun when the Crew scored in the 86th minute for the win.

IDK, I seem to recall seeing names like Malouda, Terry, Cech and Lampard on the field...

Jackpot777: Philly Union beat Everton a year ago, so the league has some talent that can win on any given matchday. Although not having twitchy Tim Howard in goal probably hurt The Toffees.

If the Union were in the EPL for a season, they'd find themselves fighting to stay in the Football League Championship the next season.

Meh. Wake me up when EPL teams field a full-strength team for their pre-season money making tours of the MLS stadia
