MLS Commissioner Don Garber says it is hard to tell just exactly what the economic crisis will do the competition.

At present, MLS is busy expanding from 10 to 18 teams (currently with 15), but some clubs are experiencing stadium and attendance problems.

When asked about the league’s short-term future, Garber replied with: "I think it is impossible to tell.

"It's unusual for us as Americans to wake up this way, because we're born with an optimism that exists just as part of our character, and a lot of that optimism has been knocked out of the system.

“We wake up every day thinking tomorrow is going to be worse instead of better, which is unusual in our society."
