How is mls going to get globally respected without getting global players? Paying mls current players more won't improve field play. MLS owners won't pay those players much more even if there were no DPs. This is just stupid argument that people makes who don't want DPs in the first place. You make it sound like mls owners are so low on cash that they of to choose between Dps or paying everybody more. The owners who wants Dps also want the cap to increase more as well. While the ones who don't want DPs also don't want the cap to increase by much.
