    Don't fret, it took the Timbers 5 years before they went to the MLS or 7 if you count the two years after the announcement. It takes time and if you look at the cities they have listed, they have a similarity to Portland. They all have 1 pro team, unless you could the Bangles, then Cincinnati has two. Phoenix has all four and other than the Cardinals, attendance for the other three aren't great right now. They want cities that need the MLS more than the MLS needs them.

    This sucks.


    Still think having two LA and two NYC teams is foolish

    This just screams for a tiering/promotion-relegation system, that sadly will never come

    If Phoenix Rising wants one of the 2 remaining expansion slots they better bring in a Daddy Warbucks type of billionaire to join the ownership group.
