    This is an excellent opportunity for Carlos to assert himself and insist on minimum minutes for Homegrown players. Sadly, he will will not. At the very least, he could berate those teams (11-23) that don't even play their academy kids. Fortunately, everything is fine, just fine. /S

    Don't confuse "homegrown" with US Citizenship.

    I don't see how that's possible, Bob. MLS encompasses both USA and Canada, so US citizenship would obviously not be required by our overly-polite and humo(u)rous neightbors to the north.

    Unless, of course, you are implying I'm a big fat racist, which would be something else altogether and have nothing to do with soccer. But thanks for trolling.

    Does it make sense for USSF to put more something like half it's youth DEV money into MLS Team DA Academies for MLS teasm that do not even play the players?

    Hat tip Philly and Ernie.  Hope he has the same impact at National Team level.  Bringing young players along is where we need to improve.
