There is a "sore" point there for me:
A domestic player is either a U.S. citizen, a permanent resident (green card holder) or the holder of other special status (e.g., has been granted refugee or asylum status).
Now there is nowhere mention about "canadian" players are we to assume that DOMESTIC Players are either US or/and Canadian? [V]
I. MLS ROSTER COMPOSITION
A Major League Soccer team's full roster is comprised of the Senior Roster and the Developmental Roster. The full roster shall exceed no more than 28 total players: 18 players on the Senior Roster and no more than 10 players on the Developmental Roster. All 28 players are eligible for selection as part of the game-day squad during the regular season and playoffs.
So we can have 18 "senior" players no matter what the ratio or US/Cdn? How many foreign players are we allowed?(are US ones then considered foreign?)
In accordance with MLS policies, Toronto FC will be restricted to an 18 man senior roster. Like its American counterparts, the squad will consist of both domestic and foreign players (though these domestic players will be Canadian rather than American). The team will be allowed the MLS-standard four senior foreign players as well as a limited number of younger foreign players. While the full regulations have yet to be finalized, the team will also have a quota of three American players to fulfill. Thus the team will be required to field fewer domestic players than its American counterparts.
Could someone explain this to me more plainly....[:I]
