The Cosmos have ceased operations two weeks after winning the title. This is the team that beat NYCFC two years in a row in the US Open Cup. Whoever is left is likely joining the USL, which will have like 40 teams before it is said and done. US Soccer is a mess right now. PDL and NPSL will effectively be the third tier and there are these other regional leagues like the ASL, everyone is stepping over everyone. PDL was offering NPSL teams cash to switch. I say the USSF should intervene, implement a system of promotion and relegation in the lower tiers so that we can ensure a quality developmental pyramid.
