Quite often we tend to answer that question in terms of the level of play, however, recent events (at least in Revs land) make me think of this in different terms. What does it mean to MLS when Pat Noonan can earn more than $400K in Norway and Andy Dorman can go to a team that draws about 4,500 people and earn north of $200K per year? Both amounts are WELL beyond what they would be earning in MLS. While the SPL is known for Celtic and Rangers, St. Mirren isn't exactly a UEFA regular. I think this plays well beyond the Revs. Both of them were better than average I would think, but neither were stars. With these kind of wages out there in the 'world market' for these kinds of players, the MLS may become a feeder league like it or not - OR - they are going to have to get some serious money into the game to be able to significantly increase the salaries.
