After Cup cash isn't flowing in - by FDA, Globe What the heck is FDA doing here....on All-star weekend? Now, I don't really care if we get another fluff piece on guys going to the game or not. But, an article sorta' putting mls in a bad light really makes no sense to me. his article seems to lack substance or a real point he's failed to talk specifically about donovan...who by all accounts WANTS to stay in mls and, he writes the whole thing by not really stating his own opinion....but with lengthy quotes from Patrick McCabe and other agents. Isn't PM one of the agents that's been a thorn in MLS' side for quite some time? the guy that got Savarese outta' here into a "great fulltime position" with a 3rd division italian side if i'm not mistaken? Is he Hurtado's agent? Diallo's agent? Personally, an agent's assertion that the u.s. will fall short of the '02 performance with the next go 'round if mls doesn't "let" these young guys get over to europe...doesn't really impress me all that much since he's really a guy that has potentially something financially to gain from transfers. it may or may not prove true in the end...but just getting back to the round of 8 will be difficult in and of itself regardless of how many of these guys get out of mls eventually (and i'm sure there will be some) plus, i think the lack mega-transfers and a hot market is worldwide phenomena right now....its not just an mls thing. i thought inamoto from japan played great for instance...but, he just got released from his club and got a relative unsubstantive 1 year deal with fulham. my take is that tons of clubs got burned after the buyers market of post w.c. '98 and people would rather not repeat that. I don't see this as an "mls is holding these guys back and its going to hurt the nat team in the end" situation that FDA seems to want to imply. I guess I'd just rather not see an FDA article, weak on substance and foundation, that could be seen as anti-mls front office, with a bunch of quotes from a questionable agent as his only real source....on all-star saturday. BRING BACK JOHN POWERS!
