    MLS and Bundesliga team up to improve U.S. game

    The Germans and US are getting together to try to improve soccer.

    I think the US is going in the right direction to improve our soccer, I hope they stick with it.

    its a nice start, but i would have liked to see a deal that would feature some sort of player movement...an infusion of good (but not great) European talent into MLS would improve the quality of the game immensely, even if they were only around for one season at a time...

    You can improve Ameican soccer all you want. What you can't improve is American interest in WATCHING soccer.

    I believe if they put a good product on the field and get the peoples attention they will tune in. The 1999 Womens World Cup team had huge T.V ratings. Those games led to a mini soccer explosion within young girls in the country.. Now if only the mens team can do the same.
