The Future Of US Club Soccer At A Crossroads: Part Two – How NASL Can Overhaul Its Value Proposition & Bring Promotion & Relegation To US Soccer

Fair warning: This is a promotion and relegation article.  As such, it will not be for many readers.  If you find discussion on the topic of promotion and relegation upsetting, for the sake of your blood pressure, turn back now.  All others, proceed. Let’s get this out of the way:  Promotion

First Class: NASL Team of the Spring 2016

The final week of the Spring was rather exciting. Indy Eleven remained undefeated but, more importantly, rallied to score the four goals needed to win the Spring title over the New York Cosmos. It was an exhilarating performance from Indy as they thrashed the Carolina Railhawks. I wanted to wait until

First Class: NASL Best XI, Week 10

It was a vital weekend in the NASL. Unfortunately, the opening drama--the shocking upset of the New York Cosmos by Ft. Lauderdale Strikers--quickly dissipated as every team that could have taken advantage of the Cosmos lost wasting opportunity. So now, going into the final week of the Spring, the Cosmos have all

First Class: NASL Best XI, Week 6

The two things learned this week: Miami FC is playing worse than David Beckham's Miami team and Carolina has come back down to Earth. Regarding the latter, the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers apparently decided they had had enough of being the worst team in Florida. Arriving in Cary, North Carolina, the Strikers owned the

NASL Spring 2016: Week 6 Predictions

We are roughly midway through the Spring, and it's pretty clear who the top teams are. In fact, can divide the NASL into three parts: Florida, Canada, and the rest. Nearly all of 'the rest' are at the top of the table. Still, things can quickly change and never doubt
