    Wants to be an owner [​IMG]

    Beckham’s original five-year contract included the option to buy a franchise after he retires from playing in the U.S. and Leiweke has said MLS has made arrangements for Beckham to become an owner and run his own franchise.

    sounds like he intends to buy into LA when he's done playing.

    Ok good.

    On an other note..... he was a good ambassador of the league, can't remember any tabloid sh!t or extravagant demands..... a total professional as far as I'm concerned and will be missed from MLS....He's got the best right peg in the game! [​IMG]

    He also scored too many goals against us.

    He's been awesome for the league and for the sport in the US. It was a mess in the beginning, partially due to Beckham's handlers and partially due to Steve Sidwell being a freaking maniac, but it's been enormous. There may not have beeen a Philadelphia Union if Beckham hadn't come to the league.

    Sorry, I tend to think people don't take a fair approach to his tenure with the league. Too much time was spent in selfish pursuits causing him to miss far too many MLS matches. This always conveniently gets left out of most storylines of Beckham in MLS. Did he do a lot of good for the league, yes, but much like historical figures we are whitewashing his time here. I'm not saying he wasn't good, I'm saying people need to take a more balance view of his time here. He got paid a lot of money for not a lot of time on the field.

    End of story for me........Don't really care about the amount of games he missed for the Galaxy. But I also think that FOXSOCCER CHANNEL and ESPN have done more growing the sport in the US by showing Premier league games and Champions League games!

    Believe his only appearance at PPL Park was in the All Star Game.

    The guy has accumulated a wealth of ugly tattoos over the years.

    Don't forget the ill-advised facial hair.
