    Not sure how taking a MLS player on loan like every other minor league D2 and D3 soccer team somehow constitutes the Cosmos heading to MLS. Whatever Ives. It just means they are the same as the Carolina RailHawks and Rochester Rhinos.

      Where does he say they are headed to MLS? It talks about a once icy relationship.

        Improved relations between the two organizations will help both to synergize resources. It will increase our leagues clout over the long run. I would love to see the Cosmos in the MLS if they have the fan base to support a top flight team. How big is the Cosmos fan base anyhow? The name is definitely huge.

        Yeah, that’ll happen once MLS abandons single entity so Sela Sports doesn’t have to hand over ownership of the Cosmos brand to MLS – which was a major sticking point when they initially had discussions, and isn’t changing anytime soon.

        “Surprised to MLS making deals with the Cosmos , or see the improved relationship as a sign that we could one day see the Cosmos in MLS?”
        Right above “Share you thoughts below”.

        MLS teams deal with minor league teams all the time. Doesn’t mean they’re going to join the league and we won’t be seeing Hempstead Cosmos in MLS.

        Football clubs make deals with other football clubs all tthe time. Cosmos signed Lewis and loaned him with option to buy to Vancouver. Seattle loaned a player to Cosmos. Major/minor has nothing to do with it, teams transfer and loan players all the time to other clubs for a host of reasons.

    Great to see fervor for Toronto football on the upswing! I still laugh when I think about seeing all those commemorative (Frisbees?) TFC first home game goal projectiles against FC Dallas? :) It’s been a while! lol

    Hey, he looks like Quinn from Impractical Jokers (who is a Cosmos fan, so how appropriate).

    If the cosmos build their stadium how does mls keep them out of the league?

      Simple, by NOT picking up the phone when mr. cosmo calls.

      Moot point since, according to Hempstead fans, their club is too big and important for MLS and its salary cup structure.

    The Cosmos DON’T want to be in MLS. Their project is to go it alone, using the NASL as a base league which they can win any time they want, the USOC to prove that they are as good as MLS teams, CCL to go international, WCC as the Holy Grail……………

    Mission accomplished for Leiweke. He came in and did what he was asked. Well done.
