ii. On plastic pitches.
A popular pastime of MLS fans is to complain about the fake grass that the Timbers, Sounders and Whitecaps play on.
Here's the thing about that.
The then-called Seahawks Stadium only was approved by voters because they said that it would bring us a MLS franchise. Had that not been in the mix, the bid to build the stadium that ultimately replaced the Kingdome would have failed, the Seahawks would likely have moved to Los Angeles, Seattle would never have been given an MLS club, and the Sounders, Timbers and Whitecaps would all still be fighting amongst themselves in lower divisions.
And as such, MLS would still be crap.
