    Actually, I have a different complaint about this. I had assumed that the Metros had used up all their discoveries this year (such as the Galvan and Forchetti acquisitions--the Argies who are on loans). But the Pole is listed as a discovery. If they had an outstanding discovery, why weren't Metro required to use him on Johnny Walker? If he wasn't acquired via allocation or lottery or superdraft or waivers, they must have acquired him somehow.

    It doesn't matter. DC is going to overtake the Metros in the standings anyhow, and noone will remember this guys name!

    So has anyone else noticed the strong resemblence to Drago from Rocky IV? Something smells fishy.

    The traded San Jose for a "discovery player to be named later" on the trading deadline, the league essentially ignoring the published rule that you can only trade discovery players, not discovery clots.

    They could have done what DC did - within the rules - and IR Moreno and sign the guy as a replacement. But he wanted more than the short-term deal Martins has and a decent chunk of change for next year, so they got around the deadline with that little trick.

    And when an anti-conspiracy theory guy like me gets pissed about this kind of crap, it's pretty bad.

    Said it before and I will say it again. The MLS rulebook is like a six-pack of shlitz. Not sure what it exactly means, but it seems appropriate.

    If you think that MLS ignoring the rules for the Scum is bad jut wait until the Chivas join the league. That will be a disgrace.

    Welcome to a sinking ship, please move to the right, so DCU can pass on the left

    Why do you say that? Since Vergara has said they will play by the rules and MLS says he will have to play by the rules and people from individual teams say they have to play by the rules, why is their an assumption they will get a free pass? Vergara's idiot executives have run their mouths a few times and been contradicted each and every time.

    Everyone gets some leeway. But when it's done for a rule that is published - like this instance - it's more egregious.

    I'm taking 3: the number of posts afer this before a metro fan (paging the field marshall...Sir Alexander...) struts in here trying to rationalize this and "explain" to us DC fans (hey, they're doing US a favor) how this is exactly and fully within MLS' water tight rules and how we DC fans are undermining the standing and perception of MLS as a whole and the fate of western civilization by questioning the veracity, legitimacy, and general cackamameebullcrapness of this shenanigan.

    Cheers,
    Tim

    Already been done. Check out Monster's thread in the MLS forum. "I'm in charge here" has already explained how it's really DC that broke the rules, that 1+1 isn't two at all and that we're all just a bunch of malingering whiners.

    Phase one: sign foreign talent. Phase two: ... Phase three: assign to MetroStars.

    Seemed to work well for those pesky underpants gnomes living in South Park.

    Step one: steal underpants. Step two: ... Step three: profits.

    And you don't think the MLS will let the Chivas get away with the similar stuff in their quest to field an all hispanic team.

    MLS rules change all the time (or rather are re-interpreted) all the time when serves MLS purpose. Example: the scum.

    Careful, that's one of GrillMaster's favorite "beers" ;)
    I remember people getting miffed when the trade was made. The least they could have done was get SJ to sign him (pending approval, paperwork, blah blah blah) and then trade him, not the slot. It still would have been silly, but it might have maybe appeared a tiny bit more legitimate. Nothing the league does for LA or NJ will ever truly surprise me.

    Well, I for one am not going to complain too much, because those same silly MLS rules are probably going to end up allowing me to watch Freddy Adu in a DCU uniform next season!! (can you say season tickets?) Anyway, as for Vergara, the league isn't going to allow him to field the Mexican national team. Sure, if he wants to stock them with Mexican-Americans, he will probably be able to get away with it, but then, the team wouldn't win. He is posturing for the Mexican support, that's all. When the time comes, he will have a few Mexicans, maybe a few others of Mexican descent, and then the rest of his guys will look just like the other teams in the league. take that one to the bank.

    Agree with you 100% on this post. Not like they would concentrate in winning the MLS more than their own league, but still valid.

    In Mexico, reporters are talking about using some of their current second team players to come to the US. If this goes through, I predict Chivas USA will be last place West in 2004. 1 more point than MetroScums on the Eastern Conference.
