The offseason is nearly over as FC Dallas continues to build their roster for 2016.

It feels weird to think that a 28-year old is considered old for this club but Juan Esteban Ortiz definitely brings in a wealth of experience from Colombia, something we know Oscar Pareja will enjoy having.
// MLS //
Definitely some strong words from a former national team player and one the league's better midfielders. I wonder if we're going to start seeing a divide between players in MLS and Klinsmann. I mean it has already been there but I guess I am curious to see if players are going to be more vocal about it like this.
The media tour for the league rolled on yesterday as NYCFC formally introduced their new manager to the press. He seems happy with this move and eager to learn MLS.
The MorrisWatch/Saga/etc. is finally over as the Sounders will get their guy to sign on the dotted line and become a professional for their team once and for all.
Another move for the Sounders here in the offseason.
I'll continue to say that Vancouver has been one of the big winners this offseason. Just smart, simple moves that have improved their roster.
The thought of another striker needing to come to Frisco is still a big one on our minds and other people see that as well.
The Bruce had a lot to say this week about players, money, expansion. His own fans are seeing through some of his comments though and are learning to live with it.
// USL //
Excuse the hideous map (I still have no idea what the red states mean). The USL announced how the conference formats will be for this season. 29 teams in two conferences. Fun.
