So, NYC is about to play Portland for the MLS championship, and I haven't heard a word about it on DMTree?

Another question is why don't I have permission to post to 110%?

should work now. i dont follow mls. and because of streaming services gobbling up different leagues following world soccer is super annoying now. they are slowly killing and replacing it with an inferior product while not reducing the price. progress!

PDX = Soccer City USA

Woman won 4 of the last 5 trophies and men have the best end of season of any team by a mile.....

Timbers host the game and we will destroy NYC and take the trophy this Saturday!

  • Another step in the endless process of soccer conquering the US. Around here the main coverage angle was will we end the local title drought, going back to the Giants in 2012? Well, if one of our baseball, football, basketball, probably even hockey teams won the title, you'd hear fireworks and people in the streets. MLS; not so much. It's a bigger deal if some immigrant community's home team wins a World Cup game.

    • not doubting that was the local angle because i caught a whiff of it on reddit but curious what your source was.

      i did read this past week that soccer has passed hockey as the fourth most popular spectator sport in america but i assume that is based on viewing habits primarily of world soccer and not mls driven. still, average attendance for the nhl is about 17500 while in probably half the games per season the mls pre-covid was over 21000 in admittedly larger venues.

      • Mostly mainstream local TV news and the Post. The TV stations still maintain a sports reporter, but have largely relegated coverage to the crawl at the bottom of the screen. The Post is heavily invested in sports, but NYCFC was not the lead story on the back page, though there was a banner at the top proclaiming "City's first champs since Giants!" Only one page with one report inside, compared to the endless sidebars about NFL and NBA (and that's not counting all the betting stuff.)
