North American Football. What if…

What if there was a promotion/relegation system in North American football?  The rest of the world does it.  Why couldn’t it be done in Canada and the United States.

I doubt it will ever become a reality, but I am going to take a look at what the top three leagues would look like if there was such a system in America.

With the current amount of teams, I am assuming a promotion/relegation system of two teams.  Wouldn’t it be much more exciting to watch FC Dallas, Kansas City, San Jose and New York battle to avoid relegation?  There also is a 4-team race to see who gets promoted from USL Divison 1.  Thrilling!
Is this what they mean when they say “the American dream” or am I just dreaming of a real football system.  We probably will never know.
