This isn’t the first but the latest bunch of player salary newspaper articles leads me to believe we may see some changes in the not too distant future. I’m guessing it’s either the Players Union or some Agent that’s giving the salary info to the press.
My take? Well, if only the top players are getting big money and the developmental players aren’t getting enough to pay rent, how long will those players really be developed. Then again, this is an opportunity for USL 1 teams to sign a few of these players to long term deals and force MLS to compensate the USL 1 team for that player they want while they are already under contract. Well, it works in the rest of the world.
