Okay. The rumors are flying that Beckham could go to Arsenal for Ljundberg and $18 million. Now, if you know me, you know I've been very conservative in thought when it comes to MLS splashing cash. BUT, maybe now is the time to really make a push for Beckham? Please reread that paragraph before continuing. Let's say MLS offers up $35-40 million (and let's say that's enough to get him, may not be?), and gets Beckham. Would MLS not be able to get that money back and more through the deal? At some point, the league must step up and take a major chance. Beckham MIGHT be the ONE player in the world MLS could profit mightily from. Now, for argument, I'll hear: "Yeah, but I'd rather see them take that money and help build a stadium". Yeah, thayt's great IF you can get local govts. to play ball. I do not for a minute believe lack of money is an issue at all in any MLS team not having their own stadium yet. "That much money pays for MLS salaries for almost two years". Yep, true, but that kinbd of money could lead to far greater profits. "I hate Beckham". Fair enough, but I feel he is that one player for the U.S.' average sports fan to look to. Is 35-40 enough to get him? Would MLS really be able to recoup that? The questions are far more numerous than this, but I think the discussion is viable.
