This Gotze deal is a prime example of why I prefer the parity of MLS.

Dortmund has a great youth program...look at some of the talent they have in Reus, Gundogan, Hummels, Santana, Lewandowski, and Bender, yet because Gotze wants to go to a "top team."

The have-nots develop players and then sell them to the financial haves. Dortmund should be considered a "have," they are in the final four for UEFA and I think have a genuine shot at it. Yet players leave as they enter their prime to go to the big name.
