That's a generality that would not stand up to quantitative scrutiny. But it is true that similarities between the sports do attract some sports fans to both games. There's a much stronger correlation between hockey & lacrosse - especially in Canada - due to the even closer relationship between the two.

What’s the chances the St Louis team is good the first year? Haven’t followed MLS so I don’t know what to go on. Be cool if we Vegas it the first year! Been watching soccer lately to prep up and I’m getting into it. Good stuff!

MLSSoccer.com (Feb 2017): A look back at the history of MLS expansion
Thanks, that was a good article. Based on that, there’s hope for early success with our expansion team. I’m getting into it. Watched the Sounders and a Galaxy last night and it was a great game.
