Who’s are the most underappreciated and under paid player in the MLS? What with the release of the 2008 MLS player salaries I thought we’d run down the list a bit and dig out a few players who aren’t getting enough credit in the press or in the bank account. In some ways it’s extraordinary that there are players making less than $20K even if they’re just developmental players.
But that’s what this game will do to you: you’ll chase the dream no matter what. So hat’s off to those players, the underappreciated and the under paid. When a player comes in and is paid an exorbitant amount, like Denilson, but doesn’t pan out either in performance, wins, or even jersey sales, it’s all the more painful to those clubs with players just getting by so to speak. One of the Galaxy players said something like he stays near Beckham just in case he drops a hundred dollar bill. One or two of the Galaxy players could sure use it after looking at the list.
But here’s a quick rundown of some of the players that are bargains or just under paid and under appreciated:
Side Note: I’ve got to give some respect to TheOffside.com and their new or relatively new eye catching banner. TheOffside.com is the place to go for a quick updates on what’s going on in the soccer world, from their photo of the day to their bloggers covering nearly every league in the world. But based on their sexy banner ad, you might expect naked ladies, it’s not that type of site though. However, from time to time they do give you some salacious news. As was the case when we discovered their post on a certain Brazilian referee who posed naked for Playboy.
Extra: I’ve figured out why Houston won the title last year in the MLS, they’ve got cheerleaders.
