I've never seen these #'s before, so here they are: http://www.mediotiempo.com/jugadores/busca_jugador.php?id_torneo=18 I don't speak Spanish, but this site seems to break down the MFL rosters. The foreign players are listed as: Argentino 32 Brasileño 22 Chileno 10 Uruguayo 9 Colombiano 8 Paraguayo 5 Ecuatoriano 3 Boliviano 2 Peruano 2 Hondureño 1 Italiano 1 Costarricense 1 That's 93 from South America by my quick math. The Italian was born in Argentina and played for Boca Juniors. So there's only 1 Honduras player and 1 from Costa Rica, and that's it for foreigners. I don't see any Americans listed, though wouldn't Daniel Hernandez and maybe Antonio Martinez (is he div 2 there now?) count? Maybe dual-citizenship or green card equivalent? I'd heard the generalization of South Americans dominating the foreign spots, but this is quite staggering to me. It seems like MFL isn't an option for many in CONCACAF. MLS the last couple of years has started to try to lock up the young talent in the region - Jamaica, Costa Rica, etc. The expanding of foreign slots (especially the TI's) seems to indicate a further desire to look for such signings. This last year new players have come from Haiti, Cuba (though in the US for years), Jamaica, TnT. Starrs from Honduras, Guatemala have torn up the league. El Salvador has contributed several players. By the way, the 2 CONCACAF foreigners listed are Danilo Turcios Tecos (Honduran) 26 y/o Oscar Emilio Rojas Dorados (Costa Rican) 25 y/o I guess some CONCACAF guys will try Europe (mostly Jamaican and Canadian and from the smaller English speaking countries - ?TNT with Commonwealth connections) and Uruguay and the other South American leagues, but judging by rosters I've seen, it seems most of the players stay domestic and would consider a MLS offer. How much do the better players make in these CONCACAF leagues? In South American leagues? Would MLS be a better showcase towards Europe than the leagues in Central America? Later I'll try an analysis of where CONCACAF 1st choice national teamers play.
