Pretty simple stuff here...
We've all seen it. There is this myth being put forth by Status Quo'ists that #ProRelForUSA advocates want the system to change TODAY! RIGHT NOW! NOW! NOW!
They consistently say "We aren't ready yet".
To make it perfectly clear reformists want a reasonable plan put in to place so that the pyramid can grow in to its final form several years down the line. Reasonable people can see that it will take time to make the radical system change from how the game is structured now to where it needs to be.
The two most popular current plans on how to reform the pyramid both call for this (and if you Google search you'll find many many other plans that do the same thing).
Read the NISA plan here.
Read the SoccerReform plan here.
No, "We aren't ready yet" if you want to use the straw-man argument that people want total system reform tomorrow. We ARE READY for a plan to be put in place. Yes, it will take years to implement it.
Continue to speak up for #ProRelForUSA! The tides are turning.

So there have been these long lasting rumors that Sunil Gulati and Chuck Blazer owned New Haven Travel and were using their positions in USSF and CONCACAF to funnel money to their own pockets... maybe even to launder money...
People have looked for information. They are still looking for information.
Seeking info: do you have knowledge of financial ties between Sunil Gulati & New Haven Travel Service Inc?— WikiMLS (@wikimls) October 20, 2017

Brooke Tunstall even put a lot of it back out there on Twitter recently in this series of tweets.
So how many of you in (US) #soccertwitter know of the rumors surrounding a certain econ professor and New Haven Travel? #USMNT #USSoccer— Brooke Tunstall (@YesThatBrooke) October 11, 2017
When you Google New Haven Travel... you get next to no results. Which is amazing for a company that has been around for this long and so involved in soccer at a high level in this country that they sponsored an MLS Award in their name in 2008.
and on top of that were the official travel agency for the USSF and MLS...
Just weird that so many people think there is something to see here... there just is so little information about the company on the internet... they were involved in so much soccer "stuff"... nobody in soccer wants to go on record and speak about it.
You have anything you want to say about it? Comment section is where to do it...
Never forget what the US media thought about Bruce Arena...

A good read while some have a little “why Bruce?” crow for breakfast. https://t.co/mOGPTl0ROV— Kyle Martino (@kylemartino) October 7, 2017

4 World Cup Qualifying games. 2 home wins. 2 road draws. Bruce simply knows how to Concacaf.— Adrian Healey (@AdrianHealey) June 12, 2017
and this final gem...
Give me one reason why Bruce Arena couldn't manage @Arsenal?— Alexi Lalas (@AlexiLalas) April 30, 2016
Now lets just look at what Bruce Arena said today during his FOX punditry debut.
The former U.S. men's national team manger was asked if any players in the U.S. fall through the cracks, and said, on live TV today:— Seth Vertelney (@svertelney) November 15, 2017
“I think all the talented players are involved in our systems"
That is something that happened
Arena: "Major League Soccer is predominately international players now."— Miriti Murungi (@NutmegRadio) November 14, 2017
Lalas: "Would you mandate that they play American players, players that are eligible for the U.S. men's national team?"
Arena: "It's certainly a thought."
We should also never forget this "wonderful" quotes from Bruce Arena.
Amazing Bruce Arena quote: “There’s nothing wrong with what we’re doing...We have some good players coming up. Nothing has to change."— Simon Evans (@sgevans) October 11, 2017
Let's watch this awesome video of how we should all view Bruce Arena right now (and should have always viewed him.)
