American greyhound racing has pro-rel. Every day. It's a $1 billion a year industry. It works.
Ives: You said MLS said expansion has to stop at some point. It's NOT their call. FIFA MANDATES a 20-team cap to any nation's top tier. So when the NASL Commissioner (who by the way, actually ran the nuts and bolts of our failed WC bid) talks his usual excuses to why we don't have pro-rel, have a bit of perspective.

I'm sorry, I just don't see New York "deserving" a second team. If the Cosmos were in MLS they should just rename the other guys "New Jersey Red Bulls" and be done with it. I don't want to be jumped on, but I thought FIFA is trying to lower the number of teams in the top domestic leagues, and people are talking expansion past 20? I say they should announce they're stopping expansion and look to move bad teams, and start a real second-tier at least by minor league. Designate each team must establish a minor league team. Focus on non-MLS cities like Orlando, Charlotte, Phoenix, St. Louis, yes, even Cleveland, Indianapolis, and Cincinnati. Each city must have a suitable stadium for 12K+ seats, which could be readily expanded. Hopefully start in 5-8 years. Maybe in 30 years we can have promotion and relegation within those two tiers, who knows? But to grow the game we need a serious second-tier one way or another. Just waiting on growth is ridiculous when there are so many other sports options for Americans.
