MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] Kevin Hartman, whose status with the Kansas City Wizards was a prime example of the issues over which MLS players are fighting with the league, has joined FC Dallas. Although the Wizards chose not sign him for the 2010 season, they still held his rights and forced a 2012 second-round SuperDraft pick out of Dallas.

Hartman, a four-time MLS all-star, appeared in all 30 regular-season games for the Wizards in the 2009 season. His all-time regular season record is 146-120-64 and his postseason record is 22-15-7.

“I’m excited to be in Dallas,” said Hartman. “It’s the place where I won the 2005 championship with the Galaxy and it’s always held a place in my heart. I’m excited to be here to play in front of the Dallas fans and excited to start a new chapter in my soccer career.”

The 35-year-old played 10 years at Los Angeles before joining the Wizards in 2006.

    Well this is certainly a good thing for Hartman, but it still underscores the problem and conflict of interest that both MLS and by extension the USSF/US Soccer have over the single entity status of "their" league and control over "their" players to the extent that the USL was very nearly decertified as a FIFA sanctioned league at least as much because it posed a potential treat to the existing power structure as much as being too small an association. This stuff is going to have to be worked out better or we will continue to see far too many journeyman pros heading to play for Scandinavian fishermen instead of playing in MLS... there just must be change or stop calling yourself "Major League" because simply... you're not!

    Disappointed that he didn't sign for AC St Louis! I just hope he doesn't spend the season in Dallas riding the bench, he is too good for that. Can't say I am too impressed with the way Kansss City FC treats its loyal servants!
