So I'm watching the the Revs-Galaxy game and it's been a blast. Back and forth play, crowd going nuts, players contesting every loose ball.
I like soccer, but I've never been a huge MLS fan. The league is taking a major step forward this season, both in terms of quality of play and fan intensity. In particular I find New England to be a compelling team. Taylor Twellman looks like he's getting even better. He's the Alan Shearer of MLS if you ask me.
I'm curious is anyone's catching the bug. I figure there's got to be a few Crew fans on the board.
I've honestly given it a shot at being a Crew fan. I'd really like them to succeed, but I have a feeling the league doesn't really seem to care much about them. I get the impression that the league steers top talent to the big cities and gives teams like Columbus and KC the developmental talent. They got lucky in the past with guys like Brian McBride and Brad Friedel, but it seems like that's the only way they'll find quality stars. I may be wrong. I haven't followed it in about 5 years. Got tired of DC United winning every year.
