I'm very excited to see where this momentum takes SKC.

I plan on attending my first MLS game next year when Sporting visit Philly.

Why do people who don't give a shit click on links they don't care about. Do they have so little self restraint or important things to do in their lives?

Spicy McHaggis 11-21-2011 05:26 PM

Simply based on age and contract, I probably would have swapped Sinovic in for Cesar or (as much as it pains me to say it) Arnaud.

Good call on Ryan Smith, Zach. Seems they got a decent bit back for him. How does the supplemental draft function again?

I am not surprised about Omar Bravo. He got a bit bitchy about being excluded from the last few payoff games. I figured there was something besides an injury going on there.

Bummer about Sinovic and Saad. Neither of those are a huge surprise, IMO. I was not a big Sinovic fan but my son loves him. I'm relieved but surprised about Arnaud.

The rest are no brainers, IMO.

Saad was an unexpected bonus pickup this past year. I do want him to stick around and see if he can continue to develop.

My friends and I plan on getting a decent tailgate going next year. Next to country suites. The last game my friends went to we kept on more and more people going.

Silock 11-21-2011 07:58 PM

Very surprised about Sinovic. He's solid. Plus, I'm a little biased because I used to play with him.

I'm guessing Saad and Sinovic will both be gone.

They can't take more than one. But yes, I agree. I like Seth.

Via MLS. It is confusing I know.
2012 Expansion Draft Rules
• MLS Clubs may protect 11 players between their On-budget and their Off-budget Roster. If the Player’s contract expires at the end of 2011, he will still be considered part of the club’s roster.
• If a club protects a player, it is not obligated to exercise the player’s option. It may renegotiate subject to terms of the new CBA.
• If a player retires, he will not be a part of the club’s roster, but his club will lose its right of first refusal to him should he ultimately decide to play.
• Players on a club’s Off-budget Roster, other than Generation adidas players who have not been graduated at the end of the 2011 MLS Season or Homegrown Players on a Club’s Off-budget Roster, will be part of the expansion draft.
• Generation adidas players who have not been graduated at the end of the 2011 MLS Season and Homegrown Players on a club’s Off-budget Roster at the end of the 2011 MLS Season are automatically protected (Clubs do not have to use a protected slot on them).
• Clubs are restricted in the number of international player(s) that they may make available. Clubs may make available a number of international players equal to their total number of international players minus three, provided that if a club has three or fewer international players it may make available not more than one. (See table below).
• For purposes of this expansion process, for US-based clubs, any non-domestic US player would count as an International and, for Toronto FC and the Vancouver Whitecaps, any non-domestic US player or non-domestic Canadian players would count as an International.
• Designated players are NOT automatically protected (i.e., clubs must choose whether to protect such players and if such player is not protected, he will be available for selection in the Expansion Draft). However, if the Designated Player has a no-trade clause in his contract, then his MLS club must protect him and he will count as one of the 11 players who may be protected.
• Once a player has been claimed from a team’s non-protected roster, that team is eliminated from the expansion draft and may not lose any further players.
• Rounds: The expansion draft will be 10 rounds.
