Questions For The MLS Commish 2

If you could asked ask Major League Soccer (MLS) commissioner a question or five, what would you ask him? Last week I had some questions. This week I have a few more. Why don't developmental players get bonuses for starts and substitution appearances? They get paid peanuts and as apprentices that's just fine. But when they show they're good enough to go toe to toe with the big boys they should be rewarded. Will the league ever amount the amount of teams a player can move to in a season? What signing has been the biggest bust of 2007 so far? RSL's recently waived Luis Tejeda? Chivas USA giving up a designated player (DP) slot for 5 years for Amado Guevara? Ex-Toronto FC and now Rapid Conor Casey? A few weeks ago we saw a weak foul against Moreno called resulting ina PK and a goal for DC and a baffling red card against New England's Shalerie Joseph. A couple weekends ago we saw Talley enter the field without the referee's permission, break up NYRB's play and start an attack resulting in an RSL goal. We saw Gomez get called for offside twice last Thursday night only for the league to come back and saw he wasn't and those should have been goals. And tonight we saw Cooper take a dive to earn a PK and a goal against Chicago. When will the MLS start to use video replay to help the refs make the right calls in those situations? When will the Revolution get their own stadium?
