OK, I'll just put it out there. I don't appreciate the gold cup this year. So view this as an open appeal to more knowledgeable people to outline the pro's and con's.
Seriously, if you held it in non WC years, I'm supportive. And I DO see some value in starting to build international competition knowledge in the guys getting ready for the World Cup teams.
But the MLS schedule this year just seems a shamble given a combination of WC and GC callups.
