Morales and Williams weren't excluded; they weren't in the NT picture at the time to begin with. The more the goalposts shift (now Omar counts as an MLS player?) the less coherent this argument is. So let's recap: Supposedly, MLS/SUM is manipulating the NT to ensure MLS players get called up, except: 1) MLS owners choose to play through FIFA dates, blunting any cross-marketing benefit there would be for them 2) MLS owners increasingly refuse to release players for intl duty 3) Bruce Arena only brought in MLS players that were already in Jurgen's WCQ squad. Besides that, he brought in relatively new players like Villafana and Ream, who are not MLS players. The other player excluded by Arena in the latter rounds was Jones, an MLS player So again -- how did Arena's choices reflect the will of MLS owners or show a specifically MLS-oriented bias?
