    I hope so. The impact need results, they can't remain a bubble team for years.

    If grabbing B level talent from Latin America pays off, power to them. Just haven't seen any other team do it this way.

    The whole MLS is B level. A levels from Latin America play in Europe.

    MLS is on part with the Latin leagues, yes.

    But while I'm pretty its sure a lateral transfer in terms of talent that Latin player is making more bank in MLS.

    Great players, wrong type of stars to help grow the game....when was the last time you saw Nesta (or Di Vaio before him) give interviews, and promote the sport in MTL (irregardless of language issues).

    Some of the Expos players couldn’t speak a word of English, but you still saw them out in public promoting the team (with a translator)....

    I’m not the biggest football fan in the world, but i can still pick Giovinco, Altiodore, Bradley out of a crowd....not sure i can recognize one Impact player out of a group sitting in a restaurant for example....

    Drogba when he was playing. But other than that, not really.
