Yea I also think its a good thing for Beckham to go to the States and play for the Galaxy.
Although soccer is like the world international sport, its never gotten big in the states.

I dunno, the first question up for grabs, and the simplest is is Beckam really worth all that money? Will they earn much more just because of Beckam. I have doubts.

It seems to me people are delusional if they expect Beckam to become some kind of superstar over here. He is some kind of star over in the uk because the sport is much popular over there, tabloids are even worse over there from what I have heard, has gained fame there already because of looks, etc. Is he even that good? Soccer is not a kind of sport to produce superstars nearly as easily as basketball or the like where you can see the people up close, keep close tabs on how many baskets they have made, and so on.

Hes hurt he only played a measley 7 mintues he totally ISNT worth all this money...Yea all of the celebrities camre to watch him play once...but once they all see he isnt what he used to be and isnt scoring 5 goals a night soccers 15 minutes of fame here in america will die down again...which is sad because i love watching the sport and used to play for 8 yearrs untill our school dropped it.

In short This is only a publicity stunt to arouse interest in the mls which has been dying for years and is basically on its last legs in alot of cities which teams are.

Beckam's debut was forgettable. Do you actually think this will change anything in the MLS (which is awful by the way)? No it will not. Temporary hype, the guy will get his money (he has a reality show I think), and that is all.
arano wins the thread.

umm the whole USA soccer league's salary doesnt even come close to beckham's... unless they get a lot of advertisment out of him, they r screwed financially XD hahahahah

Soccer is #1 sport in the world, but in the US, football, basketball and baseball rule supreme so the US soccer is basically on its last legs... go Lacrosse ^ ^

lol why hate someone you dont know and will never meet and doesnt know you even exist?
anyway about "is he worth it?", maybe not as a player but for publicity sure.
i dont watch soccer and probably never will, it bores me. maybe if there were more scoring and less back and forth. its like hockey but with less violence.
