    My question is why arent MLS teams holding on to these very good players by offering them something at least close to what Tigres would offer ?? I think this would be a better investment than bringing in the older players that at one point were top players but that have little left in the tank and that MLS teams and fans are always complaining about.

    There is no bias in player selection. Players not good enough are cut because they are not good enough.

    Again never said there was bias in player selection but it makes no sense to not sign players that better, higher paying leagues are. I really like your tone now, though.

    "It is clear as day that selection is bias...."......."Lets not kid ourselves. There is an antiHispanic politically driven sentiment going on at the moment "

    Gordon, do you disagree with that last sentence??
