I'd thought I'd start a thread where frequent posters can list where they've changed their USMNT minds. I know that many, certainly myself, get stuck into a view and have a hard time adjusting off of that view. I wanted to provide a place where posters can highlight areas where our thinking has changed. For me, about 10 years ago, a poster (I think it was cleansheetbsc but that's a foggy memory) pointed out that I would rate B2/Championship players for simply being on the roster while demanding that MLS players dominate their league. My hypocrisy was laid out pretty clearly for me and I've strove to not get focused on old world soccer being better across the board. MLS is roughly equivalent to many European leagues including B2 (all are minor leagues compared to the Big 4/5, with some individual team exceptions....) so why treat them any differently? I also was a big believer in MB and really thought that the move back to MLS in his absolute prime would be beneficial for both him and the USMNT for two cycles at least as he was exactly the type of leader who would really benefit from being "the man." I also thought that hiring Bruce was a no-brainer and we would qualify handily as Arena would make sure that everyone knew what their role on the pitch was. Mea culpa and I'll try to think of some more on my side.
