I couldn't disagree more with what the DDL are doing. They definitely want to develop players -- that's why they have an academy AND club system. They have to focus on other things instead of "just winning" because...they haven't done a good job of winning! They've even had the luxury of sending 3 players (Garner, Williams, and Bardsley) into trial with MLS squads that probably never would've seen those trials unless it weren't for their US Open Cup matches. There's probably no reason why Eli Garner or Matt Williams shouldn't be in the MLS. Both are solid options for several MLS teams.
