studs up: Buchholz96: The reason Chivas USA has been a "failure" is that LA/Southern CA is a huge market with many options. Also lets be honest, Latino there is 98% Mexican. They are devoted to their Mexican league clubs and they can root for the Galaxy who is consistently better than Chivas USA plus the coverage of the Mexican league in LA is probably just as good or better than it is in Mexico.You're not from here, are you?See my post above for the reason the Goats fail. It has nothing to do with the huge Hispanic hockey culture drawing fans away from Chivas. Or did you mean the NFL fans spending all of their time and money on the local franchise?The attempt by MLS to garner support (desperately sometimes) of the Hispanic market has consistently ended in failure. As it should I might add. MLS is much more successful when it just promotes the game instead of appealing to a niche of racial stereotypes.The two best recent expansions have been in the Pacific Northwest. Not really a hot bed of latino support there. Seattle, as you might notice has more sports to draw fans than LA does, in a geographically smaller market and sells more tickets than anybody else.Also, as a lifetime fan of the USMNT, from the bottom of my heart let me express my feelings about becoming more like Mexico by throwing batteries and bags of piss on that idea. Fark Mexico....right in the Azteca.
Buchholz96: Also. What do you mean "from here"? I'm as backwoods redneck SEC/Big 12/NFL/NBA nuts as any other hillbilly you'd find from the Southeastern part of the United States. I just happened to be raised playing soccer, played professionally in several countries, speak three languages, and know a hell of a lot more about soccer than the average American because I've lived it for the last 34 years. For God's sake, I named my CyberSecurity Consulting company after my favorite soccer team.
