    That's probably the idea. We're not really going to need him for the rest of the season, so it's better to get regular playing time in the USL than to hang around scrounging sub appearances.

    The really interesting thing will be what happens next year. Say Ring stays, Herrera goes, and Sands has had a good loan and offseason. Does Dome bump Ring up to a regular CM role? Play them in the double pivot? Sign a new CM and keep Sands as Ring's backup at DM?

    im not too convinced with not needing him. Still another fifa date, and injuries keep happening.

    EDIT: jeez i type too fast...im NOT convinced we dont need him

    I would be surprised if a temporary loan to a USL side eliminates the chance to participate in the playoffs given how many teams have USL affiliates that they frequently shuttle players to and from. But, MLS is full of surprises.

    we loaned gomes last year and we needed defenders, his USL season was done and still didnt get him back. I figured it was because of rules in place. Unless PV didnt think he would of helped at all.
