Will be more competitive than we currently are, but taxes and weather are much bigger pulls than we will be - it takes a special personality to appreciate the magnitude of NYC with the density and chaos.That will affect some. But LA has all those taxes and it's still a draw. As I said, each destination has pluses and minuses. I maintain, give us a SSS and we are competitive with both of those.
Ownership will also be a factor. CFG runs their ship like a sanitized business versus the other three ownership groups that run things like prized clubs where breaking the bank is merely a question of “by how much” - AEG has consistently worked the MLS rules to their benefit and has the biggest star player, LAFC has owners that cater to the fans needs, lets the manager get what he wants, and has an insane stadium/fan presence, and FC Beckham is gearing up to be the Miami Vice of Star power and owner backing.
As a player, which looks most enticing?
