What does this do to the MLS season? Are we just going to sell out our domestic league for the glory of this Copa? In all seriousness, Gulati is proving to be incompotent and totally disrespectful of Major League Soccer. I am sure Garber will have something very negative to say about this.

Great news! Gulati is proving he is serious about making us more competetive on the world stage. Hats off to Sunil!

It's about time we finally go and play in Copa America.

I wasn;t sure if Gulati got it but this past week he seems to be turning it around with this announcement and the Klinsman discussions.
