We are talking guys who actually played real minutes. If you counted guys who played a single game of course you could come up with worse.
Jorgensen (14gp) played in more games than two of the three guys you mentioned: Khano Smith (9), Dom Oduro (5)
Kaku and Stroud are still on the bench.
At least with Carnell it was clear when changes were needed. Not liking the Struber era thus far.
The 3 teams Seltzer listed that "need" the Cup the most have been in the league for a combined less time than any single one of RBNY, Revs, or Dallas.
too funny NYRB doesn't even make this list !
Why - per writer in the comments they are not even threat!
Many of the writers at MLS are either decent writers with little to no knowledge of MLS, are new to the sport, just don't have enough of an understanding of the whole league and/or they focus on the "hot" teams to get some clicks (this is where Seltzer falls into. I liked his Americans Abroad pieces a few years back, but now a lot of pieces seem to be inviting negative feedback).
I don't blame them. Its not like there are 10-12 teams anymore and you can take in every team. I also know a lot of writers that have been around the league a long time that have struggled to keep up with the newer teams causing the same problem the other way.
I don't see them waiving the 10-day quarantine rule for a USL call-up and if I were the other team, I would certainly protest. That would be risking the health of both teams.
Fair and good points, and most the teams with a USL team have integrated at least some of those players into their first team training already meaning they wouldn't be eligible either.
Some precedent with USL canceling both the League 1 and Championship finals.
What if a team has enough COVID cases that would have caused postponement/cancellation during the regular season? It has to be a forfeit, right?
But earlier rounds? Would have to be a forfeit to keep things moving along unless MLS allows the USL team (if the team has one) to be signed to short term contracts under a COVID exception rule.
