This puts a damper on my enthusiasm, I thought john was a Golden Boot candidate, I hope this doesn't fall through.

I'd really like to hear more details, though, before I put any blame the FO.

I have to think this is merely negotiation tactics.

Having a good preseason camp can't put anyone, nevermind someone with his baggage, in position to go continent hopping to bigger and better things.
I can see him wanting a one year deal to re-prove himself and go back to Europe for bigger bucks. But a cursory glance at MLS tells one that this isn't how this league operates. You sign on for a couple, and if you do get offers after one good season then the team that took the chance on you gets something for their rolling the dice on you.
Hope Liam's right.

Obviously Frank and DLC feel as though he is not worth what he is asking and that we have enough tallent to win games without him. Or he has the baggage that was mentioned earlier and they feel he is just not worth the headache.
The worst case would be if the FO did not want the guy, but felt like they HAD to have him.
So for me, I am happy to see the FO pass on him if that really is the case.
