My appolgies if this has been posted before. On the FC Dallas website they have posted the 1st of 4 parts about the expansion draft. The part that is up there now is pretty much what was posted 3 months ago on the MLS site. But this caught my attention... "An MLS team will not have to protect P-40, Junior International or Development Players on list for 2005, [B]but some P-40 players will graduate before Expansion Draft." [/B] I assume this means that if Eddie graduates (and how can he not if he led the League in goals) we would have to protect him? I thought I read earlier (maybe on 3rddegree) the word on the street would be that he would not have to be protected. If so, that seems a bit unfair that we would have to protect 12 out of 19 players while other teams would have to protect 12 out of 18 players. And what about LA? With Herzog and Bo retiring does that mean they get to protect 12 out of 16, Leaving only 4 players unprotected while Dallas has to leave 7 on the table? Buzz - Do you know when the list of players who are left unprotected will be released?
