MLS, Who are you?
This was a very informative piece of research by Badinko on who is actually behind MLS and raises some very interesting points… including this one.
Commissioner Garber is not that man. He is an employee who may have no access to owners.

Unlike the NFL or any well-known sports league, MLS LLC is one corporation and its C.E.O is Richard A. Peddie, the former C.E.O. of Maple Leaf Sports Entertainment. At least this is what Bloomberg surprisingly told me.
