Agreed. While I understand what the MLS is doing with its system of operating as a single entity - certainly, teams like Kansas City would die right now without this system - at some point, the league will need to sever the umbilical and let the individual teams sink or swim on their own. As it stands, the MLS execs look at it as though Donovan carries the whole league on his shoulders, not just the Galaxy.
