16 is still the magic number. 16 teams will lead to a water down product league wide. With a few questionable franchises. 12 might be more realistic.

Sakiewicz on whether he’s thinking about expansion: “Every day. It’s a top priority. I’d like to get to16 as soon as we can. We have windows in 2018 and 2020 and I’d like to bring in one or two in each crunch and go from there.”

Edmonton, Philadelphia, Nashville…..wishful thinking or maybe not

Sakiewicz on increasing the league’s TV presence: “A national TV deal is tough. It’s still tough for MLS. It took 20 years for them to get the fairly decent one they have now. I’d like to see team invest in their local markets and get local TV deals. Once we get to 20 teams in this league, we’re more interesting for a national broadcaster.”

Talent is simple not available for a 20 league team right now or in the future. Chasing the pot of gold. At the end of the rainbow. That is simply not there. Big dreams small wallets.
