Cummings at 80K is the best deal in the league.
George John (42), Aruajo Jr. (53), Ream (60), Cummings (80), Agudelo (85) and Tally Hall (94) are steals that come to mind. Mendoza (500), de Guzman (1.9mil) and Castillo (2mil) the obviously overpaid DP's.
Or at least, it should be.
Mauro Rosales is at $42,000 ? Wow.
Dynamo please trade for him!!!!!
I would like to see the total salary for each team . I am sure they are not the same . How again is this a single entity league?
A few more bargains:
Chaves - CHI @ $45K
Daniel - PHI @ $46K
Hassili -VAN @ $900K [7th highest in MLS]
Stevanovic - TOR @ $250K
DPs with low guaranteed comp:
Koke - HOU @ $153K
Bravo - KC @ $170K
Koke is NOT a DP.
Salary Cap doesn't necessarilly have to mean Single Entity but there are some strange things going on.
Why do they keep calling Saborio (300) and Chara (143) DP's when their salaries are way below the max. Some keep on mentioning because they had to pay transfer fees. What does that have anything to do with the price of tea in China. Does the transfer fees somehow translate into the salary cap. If so how does that compute.
I love how the base salaries and compensation for some are WAY off. Is that a way around the salary cap where only the base salary applies (Ex.Rodney Wallace 90K/139K, Steve Zakuani 90K/188K, D. Nagbe 65K/201K) that's big disparities, and there's alot of them. Would love to see how this pdf translates into the roster rules. Anyone have the time and good excel spreadsheet skills.
For me Jacob Peterson who could be the worst starter in the league gets $150?
K.Goldthwaite at 123K is over paid and simply put Omar Cummings has to be pissed, I prove myself for 89K and the 'European' pedigree C.Folan gets 203K.
Wallace, Zakuani and Nagbe are all current or former Generation Adidas players - the variance between their salaries and guaranteed comps are the larger signing bonuses that most GA players get when they sign with the league.
While I did not do a league-wide salary budget breakdown, I did the breakdown of the Philly salary budget roster and off-budget roster as an example, which is here:
My understanding is that neither number is that salary cap number, but that the guaranteed number is closer. Big differences in the two numbers are probably due to guaranteed signing bonuses that are prorated across the years of the contract.
It does seem that the signing bonuses are becoming larger in recent years.
Will Bruin? Sounds fair to me
Will you take Jaqua ($211K) instead?
Transfer fee counts against the salary cap. Saborio and Chara as well as Fernandez are DPs so teams can still pay the transfer but not have it count against the cap.
How about Ching for Rosales?
Only reason why Seattle got Rosales for so cheap was cause by the mexico team (that Rosales trying to play for) claimed that Rosales failed a physical which isn't true according to Rosales himself. The team was looking for a excuse to not have him on the team.
Low risk high reword. Good move for Seattle especially if Rosales decides to transfer to another league.
Cummings (COL) $89k
Arajuo (SL) $53k
Alexander (DAL) $47k
Nyassi (COL) $42k
Stephens (LA) $79k
Dawkins (SJ) $60k
Daniel (PHI) $46k
John (DAL) $42k
Ream (NY) $62k
Kimura (COL) $64k
Grunenumbaum (CLB) $67
for $651k I have a lineup without any GenAd or academy players that can compete very well.
you can win the league with this lineup?
half your line-up is already out for a few months
wow. Oduro makes more than Puerari and Chaves COMBINED!
and Rosales is the biggest bargain in the league right now. Cummings is a close second.
Koske Kimura at 63K is a bargain.
Jo Jo Binks for 156K? that is just insanely stupid by DCU.
FCD is using a heck of a lot of allocation to keep Fereirra's 700K salary under the max and a non DP.
Carl Robinson took a huge pay cut (300K to 75K)
Chad Barrett for 225K? no thanks. DeLa Garza for 55K? yes thanks.
Jordan Harvey for 63K is a pretty nice bargain.
Simon Dawkins for 60K could be pretty good, as could Lenhart for 47K if he ever gets healthy and stays that way.
the way Plata has been passing the ball he could be a real deal for 42K.
Dunfield for 65K is a steal but some of the Vancouver salaries are pretty odd. Akloul 150K? Thorrington 200K? (is that guy ever not hurt?) Morfaw 90K?
Now you know why these two are roommates despite being every-game starters for the MLS Champs (and one of them went on trial with Aston Villa!).
Thanks for the explanation. Makes sense and in a way it is an appropriate way (I guess) to ease the cap salaries. Nice breakdown on Philly. Thanks.
I still don't understand. They take up one of your 3 DP slots but their transfer fee doesn't count against Cap? Only their salary does? I haven't heard that one before.
you take the transfer fee amount ... say $1M and spread it across the life of the contract ... say 4 years. that would mean the "cap hit" for such a player would be their salary + $250,000 a year for 4 years. if that is over 335K that usually means they are a DP (unless that total is paid down with allocation money like some teams are doing with players on high salaries like Fereirra, Joseph, Casey, etc.
