Check it out on twitter and laugh at all these people being idiots.
Ugh, I'm so annoyed at all the "money" talk.
EVERYONE pays a franchise fee to MLS for a team (a fee that's going up every year). So EVERYONE is guilty of "buying" rather than "building" a team.
Seattle Sounds paid $40 million to join MLS in 2009.
Montreal Impact also paid $40 million in 2010.
Orlando City paid $70 million.
NYCFC paid the current fee of $100 million.
