The Dilemma of MLS and, in particular, US young (age 25 and younger) talent. As I look at players such as Landon, DaMarcus, Convey, Boca, and the list continues to grow, these players are coming the apex of the MLS careers. I don't see how they can better their individual skill levels without being challenged not only to keep place on a match level, but having to prove their place even in a practice level. These players are becoming too comfortable, challenges seem to make their play disinterested or recreational during segments on the pitch. If MLS is truly here to better the US Nats, then they need to implicate a criteria to move these players along. With only 10,soon to be 12 teams, these players are taking up spots which can be used to find new talent, develop leadership skills, such witnessed with the under-17 teams, or the Eddie Gavins of MLS. But MLS is a business and they need to market recognizale faces of US Soccer, especially to the younger generations. So I present the following criteria to consider to keep the league and its exceptional, young talent-base both moving/developing progressly: US Players, especially with Senior National Team Caps under the age of 25 -such as the players stated above, MUST be encouraged to move on esp. to leagues other than the EPL, with regards their subjective restrictions ie Wade Barrett, Cory Gibbs, Cherundulo, etc. Those US players above the age of 25 - or those under-25 who have experience numerous injuries, MLS should focus on resigning and making them the forefront of the MLS marketing campaigns, such as Mathis, Pope, Wolff, Razov, Armas, etc. The players know their window of opportunity. I believe players like Donovan, Mastroeni, Martino, Califf are losing their opportunity to make a real impact for US Soccer on the world stage at the club level ie Howard, O'Brien. They should look at leagues in Spain, Germany, Netherlands, or even in South America where they are more tolerable and open to US young player development, especially the under-23 age.
