You're going to choose TyC Sports (who?) sources over user Dirt’s? For shame.
TyC is the major TV broadcaster for the AFA
Ahh, so not even close to as credible. Well let me share some insider secrets, my little birds down in Clearwater have told me he just went 60 mins in an exhibition vs DC. Not something I’d expect them to do with a commodity they’re actively shopping.
DonG stuck and not happy.
Ol greedy ass racist DonG screws up again, hate to see it.
Stellar offseason Rootgers
placing my bets on Nashville to be the first of DonG's expansion money grabs to relocate
Las Vegas FC here we go
Phoenix or San Diego?
Vegas has money and shiny lights, it’s basically a DonG’s best friend.
no wonder they put Nashville in the west
They’ve had like a decade to get this thing set up
3 dimensional chess
We signed another no name RB the day before selling one of the best LBs in the league. If you don't see what we're putting together over here...
Pineapple Poacher got kicked to the curb. Better move by FCC.
RBNJ club legend going to work for the upstarts and signs a full blown Dutch international striker on day 1. What a world.
Signing off on Nashville without a firm stadium agreement, nice job Don.
Reading twitter and this guy gets it. Maybe someone should reach out and get him to post here.
It’s weird because this wasn’t like Chivas USA and RSL in 2005 where MLS was begging for expansion. They had plenty of options here, and Nashville wasn’t drawing Cincinnati, Sacramento, Indy big attendance numbers in the USL either, more just solid than anything.
They had an owner with deep pockets but I think MLS was more fixated on the geography of Nashville being in the South than anything.
He says it’ll be under a $10 million transfer fee. Chicago f's up once again
well you have to think at least one of these rumors will eventually come to fruition for Miami
I think SugarShaun and Mix need to appear in a Publix parking lot to settle this feud once and for all
If they can land Martinez or any of the strikers they’re always linked with Becks just might have a stew goin
The 65th-90th minute of Philly marches are always must see TV
SKC guys tell me about Eric Dick. Looks like he's coming to Phoenix on loan.
Not great Bob. From what I read he’ll be your back up. He got passed up by a 17 and 18 year old on the depth chart of our USL team. Career highlights: Allowed 6 goals in his only MLS start. Once waved to an elephant.
What an embarrassment.
Someone’s worried about their neighbors to the NE after they won the offseason:
That makes sense, thought it would be odd to have a starter-caliber guy coming in since starter Lubin was great last year. Only other back up keeper we currently have is 17. He may get passed again.
"If I put my teeth in it, it's hard for him to get loose"
They can just have the stadium
Is Canada big enough for 2 Piatti’s?
Someone needs to dub the old American Gladiators theme over that
Knew it wasn’t big enough.
Increased investment in player spending
MLS will increase investment in the (a) salary budget, (b) General Allocation Money and (c) performance bonuses for players, raising the spending power per club every year, from $8,490,000 in 2019 to $11,643,000 in 2024. In addition, the minimum annual salary for senior roster players will increase each season to $109,200 in 2024 and 401(k) contribution and other benefits will also increase with the new CBA.
Greater salary budget flexibility across rosters
During the last three MLS seasons (2017-2019), clubs were provided an additional $1.2 million per season in Targeted Allocation Money (TAM) to be used for the acquisition or retention of players within a specific salary budget range. Under the new CBA, that $1.2 million per season has been converted to General Allocation Money and may be used across the entire roster. Additionally, as the amount of guaranteed spending across the entire roster increases over each of the next five seasons, the amount of Discretionary Targeted Allocation Money per season will decrease accordingly.
Players to share in media revenue
For the first time, player spend per club will include a share of the increased revenue generated by MLS’s new media agreements in 2023 and 2024. Beginning in 2023 and 2024, MLS will increase player spending by an amount equal to 25 percent of the increased media revenue above the amount generated by the league in 2022 plus $100 million. The league’s current local, national and international media rights partnerships expire at the end of 2022.
Increase in charter flights
Clubs will be required to use charter flights for at least eight legs of travel during the 2020 regular season, growing to 16 legs for the 2024 season. In the previous CBA, clubs had the discretion but not the requirement to charter up to four legs per season. In addition, clubs will be required to use charter air travel for all Audi MLS Cup Playoff matches and Concacaf Champions League games involving international travel.
Expanded free agency
The eligibility criteria for free agency has been expanded to include players who are 24 years or older and have five years of service in MLS. This lowers the age and term from the previous CBA (28 years old with eight years of service). The CBA also includes caps on the increases in compensation in free agent contracts. In addition, players making above the maximum salary budget, including Designated Players, will now also be eligible for free agency based on specific guidelines.
Here are all the details on the new terms of free agency.
New “Under-22” Player initiative
Beginning in 2021, MLS will have the discretion to allow clubs to sign up to three players who are 22 years old or younger on a reduced charge to a club's salary budget. More details regarding the new initiative will be provided at a later date.
Designated Player spots
Clubs will continue to have the right to sign up to three Designated Players in the new CBA. The league will have the right to limit the compensation for the third Designated Player to the maximum TAM Salary, unless the player is 23 years old or younger, in which case there will be no limit.
It still amazes me that clubs don't use charter flights and have to be told to.
If Red Bull Global was allowed to make the players travel by bus, they would
Good thing the entire league isn't ran by your clown show
Pretty sure they take the train to DC and Philly
I think the bigger issue is/was teams flying commercial from coast to coast
It doesn’t clarify on the flights. It’s says “must use 8 legs” but can teams use as many charters as possible? The real bitch move of the previous CBA is they were only ALLOWED to use 4 legs in the entire season.
