In the case of U22 Initiative Slot players, please refer to the section on U22 Initiative Roster Slots.

    This is a dumb rule and removes all incentive to sell DPs. If MLS wants to be a selling league, you need to allow teams to reinvest that money into other acquisitions.
    This is actually a fairly loosely worded measure.Itís good news you can increase your cap space by a million dollars by receiving a transfer fee or loan money.

    The regulation isnít prescriptive enough to prevent the funds from indirectly making their way into a clubís budget for DPís.

    I think MLS just wants to throw up a bit of a smokescreen to prevent any sort of expectation that money in is automatically going to be spent on player acquisition.

    Previously you could get GAM for 75% of a transfer fee, up to a total of $750k, regardless of if the player being transferred is a DP or not. So they've increased the total amount that could be converted, but removed one of the primary sources of transfer revenue (DPs). I'm in favour of increasing the cap, but think DPs should continue to contribute to that.

    EDIT: At the beginning of last season, it was adjusted to 95% of a transfer fee, up to a total of $1M. So this seems even a bigger step backwards. https://theathletic.com/1643982/2020...oney-to-clubs/

    I just assume every team has to give FC Dallas a cut of their transfer fees.

    But keep in mind this is all from the perspective of a salary cap and the clubís maximum allowable expenditures under that cap. Within that structure, you still have DPís and can theoretically spend an unlimited amount in filling those positions. Also, if memory serves, there is some discretion about the amount of money teams are spending these days in regular player salaries. Itís not the formulaic $3.0 million + DPís or whatever it was back in the day.

    All thatís to say, you can still play out a scenario where a club increases their spend post-sale of a DP. Itís just not going increase their flexibility under MLSís rules for the salary cap / budgetary guidelines.

    The Supporters Shield Foundation is already starting some of their shenanigans again. MLS needs to just create their own trophy and just finish with these guys who think they are super important (and of course, they once again blocked comments just like last year)

    Points per game played outside your home stadium should be factored in.

    The narcissism involved in all that group does right now is just stunning.

    You know, sometimes people have to realize when their involvement in something is nothing more than a goodwill gesture and otherwise nobody gives a crap about their opinion. This is one of those times.
