What They're Saying: Alejandro Bedoya

“We’re at a time where I think we need to take the training wheels off. The league has moved on so far. For me, it’s more about getting proper rest and recovery. It’s just a waste of a day on Sunday to spend a whole day in airports and on planes when we have a midweek game.”

-- Philadelphia Union captain Alejandro Bedoya on MLS's policy allowing only four charter flights per team per year (barring emergencies), after the Union, which has games scheduled against FC Cincinnati on Wednesday and against New England on Saturday, spent all of Sunday traveling after its game at Vancouver on Saturday instead of taking a red-eye charter flight directly home.
