    Eeehhh...... naw, bud.

    The ugly sisters could hold their own and maybe these clubs could compete for midtable against the RSLs and San Joses of the league. But put St Mirren, Livingston, Motherwell, really most of those teams against LA, NYCFC, Atlanta, Seattle, DC.... they're gonna get bummed in to oblivion.

    No fan of Scottish football, but signed up just to post a defense. Excuse my skepticism of your assertions.

    Ring said in an interview last year that the MLS is much better than the 2nd Bundesliga, and the best MLS teams would hold ground in the 1st BL (and he's played there himself). Are you suggesting that Aberdeen, Hearts and Hibs could compete with the likes of RB Leipzig, Gladbach etc.?

    Berget made more than Mix. Should he get a green box too?

    Why are we spending GAM to trade up and draft another goalkeeper?

    I left the draftees off my earlier list since they are a different way of acquiring a player.

    I like that FootyLovinFootyLovin put in the picks. He can just give them a different color to denote they were draft picks.

    Fair enough. Just adding some color. He’s doing a good job with his chart.

    I think I kind of agree with you.

    Berget does have a more expensive salary than Mix did, but I think Mix was relatively more expensive considering the amount of GAM available and lack of TAM. However, I still think Berget is expensive enough to obtain a green box.

    I think it says something about what they thought of the on-field talent in this draft. Our roster composition has never really seen much of a need for the draft aside from Jack Harrison. He's the only player in our history to make a real impact out of the draft. So signing a depth goalie is kind of the best way to use a spot where a field player probably wouldn't even make the team.

    Or we could spend allocation money and make a good signing. But I know, I’m just being silly now.

    You're right -- and I guess it depends on what you think of the moves that have already been reported. Spending GAM to draft a 4th-string goalie seems like a weird use of resources, but only $75,000 in GAM is a very small amount in a league that now features millions in allocation money per team.

    $75k in GAM is a lot of GAM.

    And the 19th pick. Is the marginal improvement from 7 picks worth 75k GAM? Hell no. We be stupit.
