Getting players GCs expeditiously helps when trying to bring new players in. We arent good at that either.

Other clubs are run by independent ownership who dont have to get clearance from RBG on whom they are signing.

Much of the criticism for our FO is warranted, but I find it difficult to blame them for this particular concern.

That's a job for the lawyers. I can assure you no MLS team has in-house GC expediters. And even immigration attorneys can only do so much these days.

TBF wed probably only gain 1 spot (Royer). Wonder what the new CBA rules will be on internationals.

Worked for Rivas in Orlando. That team got his in less than a yr. Prob why he was a throw-in wrt the deal for Sacha. He didn't count against the foreign player limit.

YMMV with that stuff. OFC don't have a miracle green card worker on staff.

They could have a good immigration lawyer on retainer.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

The team could certainly do much better on this front, but also keep in mind that immigration processing and interview times tend to be much more drawn out in major metropolitan areas. It's a function of population and the sheer amount of people requesting status.

(And, frankly, there are much larger entities than RB vying for the services of top notch legal counsel).

I have always liked looking for deals when buying things, like at Nordstrom Rack. Shame that this soccer team operates like that, too.

German 4th Division shirt sponsor is Nordstrom Rack?  who knew...


Bradley Wright-Phillips "I prefer it at Red Bull Arena, but it was OK. I could imagine it being good for a baseball crowd.

SKC seems to get them like they grow on trees. Didn't they get a GC for a player that was in the country for less than a season?
