One thing that gets me
On mobile the ‘Next Unread’ and ‘Unmark All’ buttons are switched. So you have to take a second to remind yourself what commenting platform you’re on before thumb mashing thru the comments.

Literally no one is saying we shouldn't replace Bruin with a better player if possible
But that requires resources if they need to be traded for or purchased and then that player needs to learn our system and integrate with the team.
We’re looking to/are adding Rusnak because he is free. We can’t just say "Well, Salloi is now ours" without some large transfer package.
Bruin also works well for us precisely because he is ok with not being written into the starting lineup with ink.
At some point it does come down to the "veteran presence" intangible and whether he offers enough of it or not to be paid somewhat more than one may think he produces on the field.
IMO, he offers enough on the field and locker room and even beyond that that he will earn whatever the two parties agree upon, which almost certainly won’t be how much he earned last season.

We were 10-3-3 in games Bruin started
which is a 2.06 ppg pace.
That includes him only starting 2 of 6 games against the three worst West clubs. He subbed on in 2 more and didn’t appear in the other 2.

Question about transfers
Has a player been transfered within the league for straight up cash or has it always been for Fucito dollars?
I guess the MLS funny money train helps prevent ballooning cap hits….is that the main reason for this system?

FCD has an insane catchment area that somehow Houston and Austin are incapable of exploiting
they almost have to sell players in order to open up spots for other promising prospects (Cannon sold so Reynolds could play and then he got sold).
This hasn’t translated into success for the team (yet?).
Also, no one likes us, we don’t care.
