    What were the numbers on Usa vs El Salvador game? Usmnt if you wont pick more Hispanics for your team for obvious reasons then do it for the money. More fans, more interest, more money.

    The Federation is not purposely trying to exclude latinos. That's never been the case. If anything it's just they opposite. With the help of MLS, it's trying to cast a broad net to catch the latinos and other minorities in the cities and minority suburbs. Problem is that it's efforts are three decades late. It will be another ten years at least before we see ALL, not just some, young talent selected because of skill, regardless of height and frame. The days of Pat Phelan and Chad Barrett, and Justin Braun types making MLS rosters is coming to an end.

    Hope your right David but I still think it is not that difficult to find the best talent now a days. I think that money wil always move the tide. Scouts now want to lokk very a little away from Academies. It seems there is a strong effort to push the Academy system as the only top player venue which will never be unless its free. I dont see that happening too soon.
