    I’d like to see you guys go more in-depth on just how huge the CCL bonus is for these clubs. The one team that doesn’t have that edge this year that’s still alive – DC United – is being eaten alive by depth issues. Would those issues still be there with CCL bonuses? Probably. Those perks don’t let you replace guys the caliber of Najar or DeRo. But, they would mitigate it a bit, and maybe they’d be looking at a less steep climb.

    (And, I’m not just saying that because I want MLS clubs to put more value on CCL … that’d just be an added bonus for me)
