MLS made up a new rule to stick it to the cheap owners | SBNation.com

We touched on the Targeted Allocation Money yesterday but this is a really good explanation as to how it might affect a club like FC Dallas. I do think this rule will work out very well in the long run for a club like FCD though, since it does force them to use the money instead of stashing it.
