I was thinking the other day, that it's hard to listen to your favorite MLS club if you are a fan of the radio calls. Yeah I can already hear the complaints "Us young folk don't listen to the radio anymore". Yawn. I know get me the rocking chair, but I grew up on radio, worked in radio, and love radio. Yeah we get the point here. But think about it this way, with Iheartradio, and Sirius, there's many chances to listen to any game at any time. I mean for Godsake I can listen to Kansas City Royals Baseball (I lived in KC for years), from my room in Buffalo NY.
I know it's something for me to talk about Media, I do it a lot around here. As you all know, I'm all for the MLS expanding their coverage. A package or another, yes I know, another station on Iheartradio or Sirius is going to far sometimes, but to be able to listen to MLS radio outside of podcasts. There's millions out there (oh and TGP one is quiet good), but think of it this way, a 24 hour a day station with all MLS games on, that would be spectacular. As much as I love to listen to European soccer matches, the fact I could hear more about the MLS, would be better.
We got to grow the sport, MLS is on the way up, but it's like the media is behind the times. Only podcasts, and you have to search for tv games (yes NBCN's broadcasts are great) and you can find games on the internet, but what if you are on a smart phone? With some more smart PR, the MLS could overtake the NBA. There's a lot of people out there playing soccer, let's get more fans. I know, novel thought.
Yeah there's the MLS app, but if you already have the app for Sirius why get another one, HAVE EVERYTHING ON ONE APP. That's just a thought. It's never going to happen, that is an all for one app. There needs to be more soccer.
