  1. I don’t understand why no MLS games are being picked up by ESPN, E3SPN 2, or Fox Sports 1 or 2. It’s not like there is a whole lot of other major live events. While I have signed up for ESPN+, I find the quality not to be as good.

    • I couldn’t agree more, Gary. It seems to me like ESPN in particular are shooting themselves in the foot by deliberately making it harder, not easier, to watch soccer. That is absolutely not the way to grow viewership for a sport.
      It’s all the crazier at a time when soccer is the sport that has been offering the most live games for months now. Some network executives seem to think US sports fans prefer talk shows to actual sports. If true, it would be a sad commentary on our society.
      I hope we won’t look back at the 2010s as a window when US soccer viewership was growing for a while, but then shrank as the top networks essentially cut back on featuring the sport, despite its growth around the rest of the world and its continuing popularity among younger Americans.
