Import Watch: MLS's top (non-DP) newcomers
by Paul Kennedy on Tuesday, Apr 28, 2015 4:03 PM EDT
Photo MLS's new Designated Players -- the likes of David Villa and Kaka -- grabbed all the attention, but so far the production from the DP Class of 2015 has been a mixed bag. Without the same fan fare, some other imports have played key roles in the first two months of the MLS season. Here's a look at six first-year foreigners who aren't on DP contracts and their contributions.

Concussion dangers still not fully accepted
If ever proof were needed that the English style of refereeing is a bad model for American referees, it was provided in abundance this past weekend. Of course, I am of the opinion that no such added proof was needed anyway, so skewed is the English view of officiating.

"It sounds stupid now but for banter I grabbed one of the poles and pretended I was doing some kind of Ninja move. I threw it into the ground behind John who, by this point, was running away and facing in the other direction. But as I did that, he did a Cruyff turn and the pole stabbed him in the leg."

-- Steven Thompson, captain of Scottish club St. Mirren, explains how he injured teammate John McGinn by throwing one of the poles players were dribbling between into McGinn's thigh. (The Scotsman)
