Mimicing things is [i]technically[/i] a talent...
Good arguments on both sides... I have a feeling that a lot of people's "personal" feelings on Mou and Ronaldo (and Real Madrid) are going to get in the way of analyzing the arguments.

Part II is truth, son!
Play on Playa!

Like diamonds and strawberries?!?

You got me rolling over here!
Besides... Everyone [i]knows[/i] baseball is the more popular sport around the world!

Little kids play it in Taiwan. Can you say the same about soccer?
Gareth Bale would like to have a word with you.

Brian Urlacher is the figment of a Gareth Bale wet dream.
I'm willing to be that in as little as 20 years, MLS will be bigger than ice hockey and will be firmly planted in the "Big Four" of American sports here in the US.

I am also willing to bet that as the sport becomes more and more popular here in the States, attendances continue to grow, and more lower division teams are planted throughout the country (infrastructure growth) which will help with talent development, ownership groups within MLS as well as the United States Soccer Federation will be more willing to allow more and more "big" name players to play here in the States.

We won't be attracting the best players, maybe ever (no great competition in place for MLS teams like the UEFA Champions League is now), but the quality of the players MLS attracts is only going to get better and better over time.

No more soon-to-be-retired players (though many have proven to be good ones), or "big names" to attract people to the stadiums (I'm looking at you Nery Castillo!)- but good quality players to make their teams better.
