    SoccerTimes is usually prett reliable, and they say that Dunseth is probably gone from his Swedish club to get back into MLS. Pastorino at Real Salt Lake reportedly has interest, as their head coach John Ellinger coached Dunny previously at the U17 level.

    I will be watching yanks-abroad.com to see what they say, as I would expect they would have some more info on this potential deal.

    Does Columbus still own his rights?

    I think they still would. It may depend on how long a player has been gone.

    I recall that San Jose still held Joe Cannon's rights when he came back from France and Colorado had to trade for them. But IIRC we didn't trade anything to DC for Sanneh's rights.

    2 years is the time limit we most think is true. early on it may have been 1 year.

    (Thursday, August 21) - Columbus Crew President/General Manager Jim Smith announced today that The Crew has signed Northern Ireland international defender Mark Williams as a discovery player. The team also announced that they have traded defender Brian Dunseth to the Dallas Burn for a Conditional Draft pick in the 2004 MLS SuperDraft.

    Around March this year it sounds like he was waived by Dallas. He had a "multi-year" contract in Feb 2003

    So if anyone owns his rights, it'd be Dallas, not Columbus.

    Wouldn't Dallas hold his rights?

    Even if we did hold "rights to Dunseth" somewhere in a cigar box why would we want them? It's not like they hold a masive trade potential or at best would be mid range in the dispersal draft (i.e. there are other players that will be left unprotected by the Crew with more value).

    Of course. I'd forgotten that period of time.

    I would value him as at least worth a 4th round draft pick.

    It would be nice to have Dunseth back in the league. Heh. I had for a moment forgotten about Real Salt Lake and drifted to a more famous Real...Heh. Though this whole thread was just a piss take.

    I think Sanneh had been gone long enough that his rights to DC expired.

    Oh right.

    I had purged that travesty from my mind.

    it was hard for me to purge it from my mind after dunseth behaved like an ass when scoring a goal for Dallas in Crew Stadium.

    I remember that whole RVDunseth incident, complete with the small but vocal pre-teen cheering club...

    I also remember McBride schooling him like a dog later that match, too.

    It's a shame. I liked the guy till then. Now, I just can't stand him.

    What some consider a travesty, others see as a very amusing moment from a rather sh!ty season.

    33 Los Angeles David McGill

    Nonsense. You must include a Revs player I can rag on before I will evaluate the rest of them.

    OK, I'll just add Dempsey to the list for argument's sake
    Round 4: 2004 MLS SuperDraft
    31 Dallas David Wagenfuhr - probably more value than Dunny
    32 Columbus Jamal Sutton - haven't seen enough
    33 Los Angeles David McGill - worse than Dunseth
    34 DC United Josh Gros - better than Dunseth
    35 Colorado Kevin Richards - worse than B
    36 MetroStars Michael Bradley - probably has more value based on his potential, but BD's clearly a more productive player now
    37 Kansas City Jay Alberts - worse
    38 Chicago Denny Clanton - worse
    39 Chicago Phil Hucles - worse
    40 San Jose Martin Pusek -worse
    Clint Dempsey - injury prone and less talent than Dunseth ;)

    So I still think he's worth something if a team was looking to trade him, but since it appears that no team owns his rights, this is a mute point.

    I heard he's going to be traded straight up for Mr. Posh Spice.

    Beckham will then be "traded" to the Metrostars and Dallas will get another allocation.

    You heard it here first.
