    Bill,
    Does a discovery pick simply expire if not used, or will it carry on to the next season? I tried finding the ruling on MLSnet but could not do so.

    I will quote Charles Barkley here, an excerpt from "The Jordan Rules".

    "Hey <ref's name>, do you have any vaseline? I know you are going to f--- us, so at least can you give us something to help with the pain?"

    Or something like that.. I do not have the friggin book in front of me.

    The raping of Columbus continues.

    Having decided that the shaft will be applied somehow........I can't help but wonder if this wouldn't be some kind of manage et toi deal.

    We get Mr. Drunk. We move Mr. Drunk to DC. DC moves some tool to say...Colorado. Colorado moves some tool to Columbus.

    Somehow a threesome would make me feel better.

    Of course not. However, wanted to make Bill know that I at least made a token effort to find it myself prior to going to our resident expert.

    With Gazza set for the switch, bar any last minute problem, 23-year-old midfielder Bryan Namoff appears - according to
    sources - to be the man to lose his berth in the United squad, with a swap for Columbus' Discovery Allocation the currency
    for the Illinois native, which in turn will be used to bring Gascoigne into Hudson's team.

    However, with United starting to look like they will be one of only two teams not to make the MLS play offs this season,
    Hudson's mission to get his team winning, and soon, may see a move for a striker to work alongside Quintanilla.

    Favourite for the chop is Roy Lassiter, who has made little impact since his return to RFK Stadium, where he had
    previously terrorised opposition defences with 36 goals in 52 starts.

    Hudson has already lost young gun Santino Quaranta for the long term, which has seen the goals dry up with the
    three-times former champions.

    What a load of garbage.

    I'll believe it when there's a Crew source attached to something, not a bunch of DC wishing.

    I saw Bergen say on the message board that we are getting Lassiter.


    Dunno if he was serious but, as you all know I hate that C-unt. I will not support him.

    And I will watch this franchise go down the gutter.

    dbd: It is my understanding that the pick will not carry over, Use it or lose it. Everyone else has used two. We, being the best team in the league, have no need for mo' better players, so we haven't used our second (the first was of course the invisible Freddy Garcia )

    And if it turns out to be Lassiter, probably the last player on Earth we could conceivably find a use for, then God help us all.

    But the article seems to say that Hudson is going to CUT Old RoyBoy ("chop") not foist him off on CBus.

    However, with United starting to look like they will be one of only two teams not to make the MLS play offs this season, Hudson's mission to get his team winning, and soon, may see a move for a striker to work alongside Quintanilla.

    ************ this. We could get someone like Steve Morrow or Ruiz or that O'brien guy or that fabbro guy on kc or we could throw our damn discovery option away for a player who won't even be in the league next year(he'll get cut). ************ our managemnt.

    How about JC + Discovery Pick in exchange for Prideaux and future considerations?

    trade JC and he will eat our defense alive whenever he would play us...

    he needs to be on the field for the crew, not for anyone else...
