There’s still a long way to go

A talented kid decides to turns down a chance at an MLS contract cuz he’s more likely to make money in the banking industry.  Now, I can understand the whole bit about not everyone can make it.  However, this kid, by every indication, had a better chance than most.  If MLS really is serious about attracting and developing the best talent in this country, they need to make sure they don’t lost them.  OK, there will always be players who decide to give Europe a go…heck, there have been a few who decide the money is better with a USL club…but to give up on the sport all together?  Well, I hope someone sees the problem here.
