    Which players should be the first ones to be edged out of the league by the next influx of talent (ie, next season)?

    This includes players who, embarrassingly, were still of high enough quality to start and/or contribute effectively in MLS this year.

    My list (in no particular order):

    Bobby Rhine
    Wes Hart
    Dario Fabbro
    Alex Pineda Chacon
    Brian West
    Dema Kovalenko
    Hristo Stoichkov
    Jaime Moreno (I hate to say it, I've always liked him)
    Joseph Addo
    Jason Moore

    Who would be on your list?

    Wow....I think these two would be welcome on any MLS team, I certainly don't see them as A-League bound. Also Hristo would retire before accepting A-League caliber play/money. I can't say I follow the other teams to make judgement on their players over a season, but from the Fire......well, I don't know. I'd say Futagaki or Dipsy would be the ones, but I don't think they were brought in to contribute right away. Kind of says something about Peter Wilt as GM when I have problem finding someone who doesn't play a role on the team....

    Are you crazy? Dema has probably been our consistently best player all year.

    I also think Moreno would retire or go back to Bolivia before he went down the the A League.

    What? No Chris Albright? I'd like to see him and Simon Elliot demoted.

    Please send all "rookie goal scorers" who need more playing time, or old dudes on the way out who still have "occasional flashes of scoring brilliance" to:

    Seattle Sounders Soccer Club
    Seahawks Stadium
    Seattle WA
    A-League Proud

    We promise to get them ready for MLS and return them at the end of 2004.
