European League Tables

The NASL filed a lawsuit against U.S. Soccer yesterday alleging that the federation's revocation of their Division II status is proof that they are hindering the league's ability to compete with MLS and the USL. This is despite the fact that the league has needed waivers to remain in the second tier from its very beginning and still hasn't fulfilled the most basic requirement, having 12 teams. This feels like yet another last ditch effort to save the troubled league and I fear it will only end up as wasted legal expenses, as the league may fold before the lawsuit can truly play out. And, even if it does, I can't imagine it going in the NASL's favor anyway.
