FC Dallas GM Michael Hitchcock told me straight out that they will not trade thier DP slot away. He also said they wouldn't be interested in trading for a DP slot, so when it comes to filling DPs, they will keep their eyes open and try for the right player if he comes along. They felt the right player was Denilson a year ago but that did not turn out as they had hoped.
You'll have to read the SI.com story to see what else Hitchcock said about the DPs, both in terms of his club and in the overall effect of the league.
Anyway, FCD fans, how do you feel about your club's position? Happy that they aren't afraid of pulling the trigger on such a deal? Or anxious to get that spot filled?
