Should CONCONCAF (the North and Central American football/soccer confederation) be merged with CONMEBOL (the South American one)? Pretty much everyone I have talked to around here who follows the sport to any degree likes the idea. Every Mexican I know supports it. The South Americans I know think it would be cool too. In international football right now the US and Mexico spend a lot of time playing each other and have relatively few meaningful matches against other teams at our level or better. It gets boring, we are the only two teams in CONCONCAF that can play at a higher level. It looks like we are both getting to the point where the rest of the competition in CONCONCAF (besides Costa Rica which is pretty good but a half step behind) is holding us back from developing further. I think getting schooled by Brazil and Argentina in the short run will help both of our teams get better in the long run while at the same time we can already more or less hang with the mid-level teams in South America like Paraguay and Ecuador. It would also make the Copa America a hemispheric championship which would be awsome. Is it a good idea? If so what would it take to make it happen?
