      Todd, The New York Times mention the MLS salaries in their paper today. It’s not as if we’re behind the eight ball. Feel free to share your opinions regarding the salaries though.

        Do you think Donavan would accept to play in Brazil for a couple of seasons? For Flamengo or Corinthians?

    I noticed that there’s no more of those $20K salaries. Looks like the minimum is now $40K? At least that’s a big step up for the younger/ rookie players.
