Snowden comes up with another great article on soccer365: http://www.soccer365.com/US_home/Features_Interviews/page_38_37662.shtml I agree that MLS is taking the wrong road in this matter. If a player really wants to go and there is a fairly reasonable offer, MLS needs to let these guys go play in Europe. The more Americans over there, the greater the likelyhood they see time. EU clubs can't waste their few spots allocated to non-EU players on somebody who isn't going to contribute. MLS is going to screw up big time if these guys leave for free at the end of their contracts.
