    I would think a 1-year deal would suit both parties pretty well. We take a flyer on a guy who could be a top scorer in the league and he gets a chance to get on the field somewhere to prove he can still play at a high level.

    There's no way a 2-year deal wouldn't leave one of the sides VERY unhappy for the 2nd year.

    1 year TAM deal sign me up... the offense can be pretty dynamic with the grouping put together

    A 2 year deal could also leave both sides very unhappy if he sucks....

    Because if he can’t cut it here, he definitely won’t find his way back to EU and we’d be stuck with a lemon.

    One year or nothing.

    That's what I meant -- whether he's good, bad or average, either he or the club would be bummed with the $$ amount of Year 2.

    Basically the same approach LA had last year with Zlatan.

    Sapong to Chicago. Rumors were that we were interested. Would have been a great addition.

    $450k in G/Tam is steep. Would never have pulled the trigger on that.

    I’m of the belief that the best use of G/Tam is to not trade it to other teams because it allows them to have a higher cap than normally allowable - ie you may get a player you want, but they can now get a better player to fit under the Cap. All G/Tam should be directly used to raise your own cap.

    There's a school of thought that trading allocation money for players is a bad front office move, since you're helping your opponents revamp their roster instead of increasing your own salary cap. I think that's especially true when you've got four free international slots and don't have to pay that GAM tax to shop for a comparable player outside the league.

    If you’re not going to max out the TAM anyway, then it doesn’t matter.

    It does matter because trading it away allows your opponents to craft a superior team than they normally would be confined to.

    But if the other team isn’t maxing it out anyway, it doesn’t matter

    Remember that not all the TAM is tradable. Only the first $1.2 million.

    Wut??? How the hell are they working their cap since they still have 4DPs on their team.... this gonna end with a rule change....

    Edit- also, LAG is gonna need a full time ACL doctor on the sideline for their forwards.

    Maybe he's sliding in to Kamara's slot.

    Probably so, but they’re making moves that aren’t solving the problem. What I want to know is if MLS signs the players, how did the league allow LAG to wind up with 4 DPs signed at once??? In fairness to the rest of the league’s teams, LAG shouldn’t be allowed to sign anybody until they figure out their DP situation.... players can transfer away, but none in.

    Then they better get ready to buy out GdS contract because they’re not gonna find a taker at this point.

    Here is my guess on how LAG will deal with the issue.

    Gio has one year left on a $6 million contract. LAG will extend him to 5 years at $1.5 million per. Then, they will buy him out after this season.
