    Lost $19m, but doesn't include Soccer United Marketing (TV) revenues. Being an MLS owner / operator gives a proportionate share in SUM, which is organized as a separate entity.

    I'm convinced that the most important thing Tim Leiweke did was clearing out 95% of TFC's FO. Sometimes to change a culture you need to change the personnel. Chicago might be another disfunctional FO...

    LA is the biggest media market in the country. NY is the second. If things were fixed by the league, it would have been an LA - NY final.

    That's a good point.

    It might be he was a good MLS 2.0 (2007-2013) manager, but couldn't keep up with the changes in MLS in the last 5-6 years.

    Interesting that the Chicago Fire are giving all their Day One SSH free seasons tickets next year. Now that's only 68 people, and Day One is 1997, but it's a nice thing to see them doing this.
