    Apparently, they are there for being All Stars that season.

    Yup. From what I can tell the side on the left will be for official MLS awards such as Gio's MVP and the Eastern Conference Championship, while the other side will be any All Star Appearances and i'm assuming anything else of that nature.

    Sort of, but not quite. The left side is "iconic TFC moments, the right is MLS honours."

    This makes much more sense than the original wall, which just reflected Mo Johnston and how he treated things.

    Personally I like it a lot, and it makes a lot of sense. Yes, it means Defoe is up there, but he did win MLS honours.

    who thought this was a good idea?

    some all star spots are purely trivial and shouldn't be interpreted as anything more. I mean Ronnie Obrien's all star appearance is a perfect example of how being named to an allstar team doesn't mean squat. 13 games, 0 goals. Maybe when his name came up, team FO should have had the common sense to scrap the idea of making plaques for meaningless blips in team history.

    I wonder if this will trickle down to other MLSE teams. Looking forward to seeing the Leo Komarov banner at the ACC.

    It does cheapen the idea to include All Stars but I imagine the league FO had some input on what we ultimately did with this. They want their shitty ASG respected and in the eyes of fans I'm sure.

    I see now that in the MLS Honours section is has All Star appearances (signified by stars) as well as MLS Best 11 awards signified by a XI

    As for the wall, it looks a bit weird and seems poorly executed. Perhaps all the All Stars should have been on one plaque? Perhaps Conference/MLS Championships should be separate from Iconic Moments. That, or iconic moments didn't include MVPs/ROYs.

    overall doesn't seem thoroughly thought through. There's a tongue twister for you.

    I'm not too crazy about this wall. Why is it outside? I would rather see it inside with nice lightning at North or South side.

    They got Ronnie O'Brien's number wrong, he wore #5 not #7 as indicated.

    Remember The Man, The Legend, The Goal 5-12-07 and All That #9 Left On The Pitch, Thanks For The Memories !!!

    One does wonder if NYCFC would put into a hall of honour Frank Lampard's first MLS All star game.

    I am fine with Defoe. He came for the money, but who doesn't? He scored some beautiful goals.

    A lot of DPs are bigger busts than he was.

    I think while we're at it, Miguel (Maycoll) Canizalez deserves an "iconic moment" spot for being the one to end the record-smashing year 1 goal-less streak (Maycoll is still playing in the fourth division in Germany, FWIW).

    I dont think he actually played the all star game due to injury from the friendly but I could be wrong. I think he wore 7 with san jose?

    I think he did play in it....tried googling some pics, but can't see a number clearly.....but you can see the TFC crest on his shirt.....looks like he wore #6 at one of the ASGs he played in though.....
