With Atlanta getting the nod for 2017, there may be a problem with the balance in the league.


Alright, as most probably know, Atlanta has been named as MLS' 22nd team. Sure, a lot of people including myself expected this to happen. However I haven't heard anyone mention that by adding Orlando, Miami and now Atlanta the Eastern Conference will have 13 teams to the Western Conferences 9. That is an unbalanced system right there unless they have a 3 conference system or even add 3-4 teams in the midwest/west. It's a few years away until Atlanta comes into the league so I was just wondering what everyones thoughts on the conference balance is and weather or not this could cause an issue in the future.
