Great news indeed. Watching MLS on HDNet has been fantastic, and I am excited all matches on ESPN2 will also be shown in HD. I would also like to applaud Mr. Skipper, who sees potential in MLS. I understand they are going to treat soccer very well next season for their Thursday night game of the week.
HDNet will also still have their games, right? And I understand FSC is making Saturday night "MLS night". I'll have to get FSC again. (Just got rid of it this past season because MLS was not being shown...)
Despite what many people think, soccer and MLS is very healthy these days in the US. The World Cup did very well, even though the US crashed out. I think it was very smart for MLS to create SUM and tap into the non-MLS soccer money in this country. I also like John Skipper's attitude for ESPN--if we can make X-games work, we can make soccer work.
