I got confused by a couple of Grant Wahl's twits: 1. "1 thing I learned today about Hérculez Gómez: His MLS rights are still owned by Kansas City." 2. "MLS como liga es empresa de caballeros--una sola entidad con reglas que limitan competición para jugadores." (MLS as a league is an enterprise of gentlemen--one entity with rules that limit competition for players.) The second twit was a response to a question posed by Elmour Souza, a reporter for TVC Deportes, who couldn't understand why KC still held HG's rights, unless there was some kind of "Gentlemen's agreement", like the one in place in Mexican Primera. So, my question is, is there really such agreement in MLS? Do teams really own their players' rights? Any info to clarify this issue would be greatly appreciated. PS Sorry to open a new thread, I just couldn't find this info easily available in the forum. If it is available, and I somehow missed it, please direct me to it and close the thread.
