Any new league that forms is just going to grab the same clubs and coaches that were accepted by ECNL when it was hot, or EDP when it was hot and so on and so on.

The only dramatic change that is really possible is USSF offering free soccer to eliminate pay to play disadvantages but the money just isn't there for that.
the money is not there (or let's say USSF isn't willing to front it and there's no MLS clubs to help the most talented players play for free). so from a diversity standpoint there will be no diversity improvements or broadening of the talent pool. the last two announced club lists were pretty weak. had they stolen most ECNL clubs (like they wanted to) it would be an ECNL killer. but they didn't - ecnl held pretty steady all things considered. so we'll end up with two watered down leagues fighting for talent.
