It's just the way it is.
It's not like the KHL where Radulov gets paid a ridiculous amount of stay out of the NHL. MLS is inferior talent and cheaper contracts. There's really not much of a reason to play here unless you can't handle Europe, with few exceptions like Landon Donovan who are focused on popularizing the sport here.
I mean, if the MLS got Henry or Beckham 10 years ago, it probably would have been an eye opener. But instead, those guys basically come here to retire.
