So if the MLS decided to merge with the NASL you might ask yourself where would the new 30 team D1 league find all the players it would need to keep the quality of soccer up as high as it has been.http://msn.foxsports.com/foxsoccer/socce...layers-58403393http://www.businessweek.com/news/2012-11...transfer-rights
Two groups in the Americas might just have a little problem with their third party player contracts...
MLS as a league owns all the rights to all the MLS players but itself does not own any of those teams. Not really sure how all that works but others have called MLS a third party owner of players.
One of the biggest third party owners is Traffic Sports. They have about 90 Brazilian and Argentine players that they might need to find new homes for once their contracts come up on their current teams. Traffic can control where those players go next. Most have contracts that allow Traffic to be a part of decisions making process and they have written in two general locations, Europe and North America. Traffic currently states that they own only three teams: Brazil, Portugal, and Fort Lauderdale... Not sure how Carolina, and Atlanta fit in there? http://www.traffic.com.br/site/EN/clubes
Maybe these two have a common problem that will need to be solved soon?
Maybe they can work together to create something new for both of them?
