ESPN Soccernet has an article up about a new $1 million exception the MLS is likely to approve. This exception would give each team the ability to sign a high-profile, foreign-basesd player.

I enjoyed the article not only for its depth, but its analysis of the league’s future and development into a money-maker from its roots and current status as a money-loser. Read the article here.
