Although I do not like to remember him, or his rejection and disregard for the US, prior to his injury, the Italian American Rossi had success in Spain.

Not many. Like I said before, Ramos and Keller played in the 2nd division there many years ago. And Jozy of course. But no successes that I know of (although I'd say Keller was too good for the segunda).

I don't see this changing anytime soon, but if I had to bet maybe Gil has gotta shot there.


Gil would interesting in Spanish League as well. According to ESPN analyze of Gil potential and play style. He is a poors man Cesc Fabregas.

Agudelo, the arrogant prat, he criticized how MLS teams can pay Bradley so much but then pay others so little they have to eat off PB+Js. Idiot then deleted it a bit later.

Agudelo was making 175,000 dollars in MLS the dude was not eating just PB'js.

For the little amount of time he actually played in MLS and his lack of consistent production; he sure thinks he should get paid like he is a superstar.

But I hope he plays well in Europe. If he ends up going

Not to ever complain about athletes making money but 175k does not go very far at all. Down to 100 k off the bat for taxes. Another 10-20k for agent, publicist, etc. another 10k for union dues. You can see it goes fast. Now I'd take 80k a year to play a sport over a 9-5 office job. But it's not like he's set for life or anything

Here is his tax rate for a single male: 17, 891.25+ 28%

Here is the formula:

17891.25+(,28X(175000-87850)
17891.50+(.28X87150)
17891.50+24402=42293.25

Income before taxes(175000)-taxable income(42293.25)= $132,706.75 income after taxes. Not $100,000.

To be clear, he wasn't talking about himself, he was talking about the guys making $39k (although the league minimum was $35k).

Irrespective, its any incredibly stupid thing to intentionally publicly criticize your employer. I have no idea why athletes and movie stars have twitter accounts. It can only cause them harm.

Much of Twitter seems like a scam run by publicists. "The most important element for your career development is the number of twitter followers...and when you inevitably post something stupid and/or offensive you will need me to clean up your mess."

Yes the league minimum needs to be raised. From what I here the players union is looking at a 6 figure number during the next CBA negotiations. My guess the league minimum will be raised to anywhere from $60,000 to $90,000. I highly doubt MLS makes the league minimum $100,000.

It is disgraceful that some players are making $39,000.

The league minimum salary is going to be for me, the most contentious aspect of CBA negotiations. The league obviously know it must increase but they're going to want to make the least amount of increase that they possibly can.

If you research the history of the major American sports leagues they have all had to go through this at some point and MLS is no different. As the minimum salary and salary cap grow the league will ultimately benefit because higher salaries attracts a higher caliber of players.

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
