Credit to Houston.  They are pretty much on the bottom of this list every year and seem to always have a decently competitive team.

No team-owned USL team, no academy and at best, they have an affiliation/hybrid set up with an existing USL team. Also, HOU's the oldest team in the league, avg age is near 28 yo. We're at 24.4 yo, in comparison.

Which explains why they have so much trouble selling tickets despite their consistent quality, while we, on the other hand ... NVM

I think I would have to go back to Taylor Graham, Kahno Smith or Juan Petrivallo to come up with a player who looked as awful as Redding did.

Peter Canero... Woof

I still say that Khano Smith had the worst game I have ever seen one of our players put up in that 2009 open cup debacle in DC (You know, the one we were down 4-0 like 25 minutes into the match?). Christ was he awful. The only good thing about that game is that we had to call the scum to order our tickets and they never bothered to charge my card.
Let's Go Buffalo!!!

Updated salaries were just released by the MLSPA. The only real news for us is that Ivan's making a base of $240k per year which sets a high bar for next season, that's 100% a starter's salary.

I am never one to question a player's effort... except him.  Just the laziest, not-giving-AF dickhead to ever wear our uniform.

His total comp is $344K!
What will the salary cap be next year?
Parker is $116K? He is so out of here!
Unless he gets the $450K of Collin.
Long $73K? WTF? When is he a free agent?
Are we still paying Rivas $445K?

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

Really want to see Ivan with a full pre-season.  They got a good long look at him during his trial before we signed him.

Parker was asking $650K, IIRC, which is why they traded him.   

Long will get taken care of.  He's not leaving.  But how much difference in salary can you justify between him and Parker?

Collin has to be gone.

Rivas is gone

What was the offer by Vancouver? I could see us offering $450K, $650 might be a stretch.

Long will get taken care of.  He's not leaving.

$250K? Similar to Lawrence?
