[MLS SPOTLIGHT] It was a big weekend for MLS homegrown players as Russell Teibert scored his first two goals in three seasons with Vancouver, Gyasi Zardes scored his first MLS goal for LA Galaxy set up by another homegrown player Jose Villarreal, and Diego Fagundez scored for New England in its 1-1 tie with New York. They bring to eight the number of homegrown players who have scored in 2013.

    Hats off to these players! But Paul, if I were you I'd get the "homegrown" issue straight!!!! I can't speak for other clubs, however, this HOME GROWN "FIASCO" is for the birds! Villareal and Zardes ARE NOT PRODUCT OF THE GALAXY...FAR FROM IT! Shame on the Galaxy for not compensating the Youth Club for "the Rights" of these players! How in the world are Youth Clubs going to survive? You brought up a "very sensitive" subject Paul which requires the utmost of research before the "horn starts tooting!" The Galaxy and the USSDA? All confused...the system is confused!
