Despite the stupid ass MLS player acquisition mechanism, I'd never go to a rival team.— Brad Evans (@brad_evans3) February 16, 2017
What if you got traded to one? 🤔 https://t.co/z3UGFLmUqb— Dax McCarty (@DaxMcCarty11) February 16, 2017
Freddy Montero to team rival, Capt'n Dax McCarty traded days after wedding, Ali Curtis mysteriously given his walking papers.. good old MSL.— herculez gomez (@herculezg) February 16, 2017
Give these players the respect they deserve. The majority don't make millions, don't take transfer fees, & have even waived FIFPro rights.— herculez gomez (@herculezg) February 16, 2017
Everywhere else 🌎 you make a 10% fee for your transfer (sale or trade). Here you waive those rights. Your almost forced or can retire. 🤷🏻♂️ https://t.co/nurW72zGDB— herculez gomez (@herculezg) February 16, 2017
The MLSPU did not do a good job standing up to MLS for its players... we all know this.
What happens when MLS players finally get fed up with the system and its machinations? What happens when USL and NASL players get fed up with the fact that they cant advance to the top levels of the game in the United States the same way players in the rest of the world can?
What happens when the players decide enough is enough... and walk out. At every level. At once.
The next level of the American Soccer Wars begins...
