The league’s collective bargaining agreement with the MLSPA is set to expire in several months. Thoughts on any of the following i.e. what changes would you like to see?

League minimums, salary caps, allocation money, charter flights, etc.

The MLS academy system is starting to have success. I'd like to see the agreement provide further encouragement toward developing young home-grown players.

Did you mean encouragement in signing home-grown players - or are you referring to the current home-grown player rule/current restrictions/territories, etc.? One thing is probable - significant salary budget changes.

MLS would have to back off taking money from teams for sales for them to encourage teams to develop home grown to the level they do in Europe. I wouldnt put much time and effort into a kid when MLS will get their grubby mitts on the money when I sell him.

It depends a lot on the club. Some give significant minutes to academy developed players.
