I beg to differ. I don't think USMNT caps -- even if they don't cap-tie -- have ever been treated as "noncommital." The whole point would be the implied statement of showing up for us when you could play for Holland. Do you really think these caps get handed out with the idea that we assume they will use the loophole???????????? Whole point is the opposite. You're one of us now. You couldn't possibly squirm out of this now. Sorry, no, I call bullsh*t. These are given to people on the assumption they are part of us and that along the way after this it will be legally cemented. Just like marrying in a church and getting your marriage certificate. You can argue you are not legally married, and people do, but 99.999% of people are not going out the trap door parsing the distinction. If you were marrying someone and they made that point the church wedding would get called off. The idea that we hand caps out to just anyone to "kick the nationality tires" is the real ridiculous argument here.
