Multiple clubs are reporting leaving the affiliate league. NYCFC will field an almost full complement of DAP teams next year.
Yes so there's even less incentive for clubs to be involved with NYCFC - now they'll take all the better younger players from the other clubs as well as the older ones. It was almost like NYCFC married them for the green card and now they don't need them any longer
What we should be doing is MORE residency programs, not less! Our NT players don't train enough together as it is. They probably didn't want to pay for it any more. I know some MLS clubs are doing or will be starting residency programs, but it's still a handful and doesn't address the needs of the NT caliber players. They really are idiots.
