Go read Dan Loney’s excellent two-part series about what a joke it is to have Herbalife as an MLS shirt sponsor. Not only is it a direct competitor to the main business of Chivas USA’s owner, it’s also a multi-level marketing scam.

Not only that, it’s not even the first one in the league. Apparently RSL’s sponsor, XanGo, is the same type of deal.

This can only mean one thing:

(Is credibility even an issue here? Or is it all money? I mean, honestly. Herbalife? Why don’t we just invite the world to a giant Amway party and call it good?)”

    Herbalife. Sigh.
