It would be awesome to have a team with infinite financial resources join the league so they can buy whomever they want and win the Cup and the Shield every year or two.

I'm glad NYC is getting another team with money. This only helps the MLS across the globe.

Now what needs to happen is that the MLS needs to drop the west and east conferences and adapt more what The Premier League does which is just one pool. Also clubs like Chicago, Portland, Seattle, Houston, etc., need to drop their nicknames (Fire, Timbers, Sounders, Dynamo) after their city name and just do what what FC Dallas, Real Salt Lake, Sporting Kansas City, D.C. United, Toronto FC do, just an easy more professional feel to their club and city name.

While some of the nicknames are lame, Dynamo is a common club title stemming mostly in former communist/Soviet Bloc nations. It is not a nickname in the sense used here.

Dynamo Dresden, Dinamo Zagreb, Dinamo Minsk, and Dynamo Moscow are just a few of the clubs with the title. The title was used to refer to the electric generator created and alludes to the industry of the city.
