Would the individual owners within Major League Soccer be subject to financial penalty, payable to the remaining MLS owners, if one or more decided to defect, start their own league or join another league?

That's it, just that, no more, nothing else, just curious.

Thanks for any replies.

Trick question: there are no owners in MLS. Only investor-operators. If they decided to leave the league, all they could take with them are whatever emails they forwarded to their personal account and the personalized jersey hanging on the wall in their office (but mostly because nobody else would want it). Maybe some pens, too.

I would love to see an operator / investor drop out of MLS and start a team here in Ohio. I know folks want to see the Sting back in Chicago. Indy, Columbus (or CLE or CIN or... all!), Chicago NASL teams - that make a profit off 10k attendances using exciting young talent MLS leaves on the curb. Better than taking a loss and being told how to do it in MLS, I'd say. Come on Precout, lets kickstart this sucker!
