I agree! There's just too much political $$$ behind & preventing the best skilled players & coaches to even apply for a position on or off the field. If a great player or coach doesn't have $$$, it won't happen.
Even when they get lucky to get someone, the adminstration of Team USA (a.k.a. Private Investors, who knows JACK about soccer.) promotes "revenue & sponsorship" by manipulating who plays or when. The results for years, is very unfortunate for USA soccer fans.
Not to ignor that the power controllers of soccer (Futbol) around the world (e.g. FIFA, IFAB, IOC, CONCACAAF, UEFA, etc.) are still under investigations (5+ years) for allegations for corruption & racketeering (RICO).
Sorry for venting!

Actually, I think a lot of people do give a fuck. I don't know what gives you the impression of the contrary.
I think "soccer" has no illusions that it'll be in a lower tier than traditional American sports but it's gonna make an effort to maximize the market in that lower tier. There's no doubt there is much bigger fan base here for the big UEFA leagues. And MLS has made strides too. Is it gonna topple the NBA, NFL,etc.? No, they don't really need to.
