I'll probably forget someone because there have been a lot of guys retiring this year. I know MLS has seen the retirement of players with some good pedigrees in the past, but there is a ton of MLS/US experience in this year's group: Jaime Moreno Brian McBride Steve Ralston Seth Stammler Mike Petke Eddie Lewis Chris Klein Clint Mathis Alecko Eskandarian (?) - seriously, how many American players in recent years have had their careers derailed because of head injuries? Zac Herold's retirement was also a sad event for different reasons. If MLS were like the other big American sports leagues, we'd already be counting down the days until a Hall of Fame class was inducted headed by Clint Mathis, Brian McBride, Steve Ralston, and Jaime Moreno. Damn. I'm going to wrap this up like Ives: How does this year's group compare to other years'? What if Berhalter and/or some others join them? Will some of these players stay involved with the sport after their retirement & how may that affect future players. I think Ralston has already joined the coaching ranks.
