    I know its fun to be quick and jump on this guy for getting this wrong, but in today's world I love that he came out and just bluntly said he was wrong.

    Kudos.

    This why former players may not be the best choice to plug/play into clubs’ business positions. Contract lengths and pink slips are pretty important and that many former coaches on the payroll is ridiculous.

    I agree, different league entirely but this has been played out over and over in the NBA, there are a small handful of outlier situations where former players that have turned themselves in good general managers but in general it works our poorly. Being a former player may help with talent evaluation but it does nothing to prepare you for negotiations, understanding cap mechanics or even just knowing how to run a large scale operations and manage multiple staff. Most of the better NBA teams have moved away from hiring former players to lead the organization.

    I'd suspect this is only more true in the MLS as it seems to have by far the most complicated cap mechanics of any of the major professional leagues. Ideally Reyna has the support he needs to fill the gaps but I always worry about it.
