Major League Soccer Salary Comparison

I love watching soccer (football) and now have the Fox Soccer Channel so have had my fill of Premier League and UEFA Champions League games recently. I also am a fan of the Seattle Sounders in the US’s Major League Soccer (MLS). Now it is a bit of an understatement to say that the MLS is behind the NFL, NBA, and MLB in popularity, although it is gaining ground, I was surprised to see how far behind the salaries and money is for the MLS squads compared to the other major sports, this is illustrated in the graph below. This has to change if the US ever wants to compete in the World Cup someday.
