Yeah. I am very puzzled about this result. I would have agreed that it seems like Pearson might have agreed to cooperate with RBNY but for that statement form his attorney.

If nothing happens after this... anyone who is responsible for overseeing contracts or this court case should be fired. This includes and not limited to their general counsel office, hamlet and thewell.

I am not really sure about that.  Just because a legal strategy does not work does not mean it was not a good strategy.

the legal strategy needs to work. That's why they get paid.

Bad example.  He did Scopes Pro Bono.  Didn't get paid.

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

Tin foil hat here: MLS wants this closed before option years get too much attention from FIFA again. We already know that they don't recognize club-only options, but turn a blind eye to MLS. So MLS tells us to drop the case, gives us a little monopoly money under the table, everybody's happy.


If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

Overthinking it.      Someone in charge of the budget saw big legal bills and little chance of collecting any money from the agent, so they cut their losses.

Not necessarily, hasn't this been exactly what has stopped MLS from pursuing losses every other time a player decided to just totally ignore a club option and bounce?

Larin set the precedent when he bolted to Turkey. The folks at the Athletic did a report at how MLS did not want to raise too much attention from FIFA

But Besiktas paid Orlando.

Yes, but not as much as MLS was hoping to get out of a straight sale. They (MLS) settled for whatever they could get. They pretty much lost all bargaining power
