In Baltimore and (IIRC) Milwaukee, the MISL are actually the main tenants in their buildings.

Everywhere else, they depend on the vagaries of other teams.

At first blush, I was thinking that they ought to start and end their season later, so they have less schedule conflicts to run against, which they MIGHT be able to arrange with Fox Soccer Channel. MIGHT.

Problem with that: a lot of the league's quality players play both MISL in winter and USL in summer. If MISL messes with that, they're LIKELY to lose the bulk of those players. Those players often dream of substantial (not necessarily big) money in Europe, and the scouts will be watching outdoors with USL, not indoors.

SO, what do you do? This is a good business school quandary IMO.
