“They don’t see the positives,” he said. “I love this. Every day, I’m on this train, I look at the freeway. Always traffic. These guys are driving and I’m just here with my feet up, watching my Netflix shows.”

And he returns home to a six-bedroom house. He couldn’t do that in Los Angeles.

And the point is...... celebrities and sports figures deserve better than us average citizens.

I'm disappointed you're trying to make us draw your deceptive conclusion with this article.

Obviously the train to the campus was the deciding factor for the I.E. location. He now lives up on the hill and in a community where soccer is widespread.

Here are random samples of the "McMansions".

This is about 40 miles from CSULA. Manhattan Beach is 28 miles from CSULA, but that would not have been the subject of a newspaper article. Claremont and San Dimas are a few miles closer but the houses in Alta Loma are newer and shinier.

OK, let me walk that back a little. It was not your conclusion, but the LA Times conclusion...

But it is deceptive. He was not forced to live there. He chose to live there because he wanted a big house. And the headline implies he's suffering. He's not.

As to his "high" salary, who knows how long he will be making that salary. He could be hurt the next game and never play soccer again. His earning potential is limited by his physical abilities. It's a risk.

Just for the record, I don't have anything against the I.E. I prefer OC over neighboring counties due to its central location and cooler weather, however, the I.E. has some great places too.

The article implies this type of commute is unusual. Seems rather nice compared to the majority of commutes that require driving the freeways.

See, he wants to own a big spacious home and the IE is the perfect place for that while still being close to LA and Orange County. Many people do in. A 4600 sf house would cost him minimum 2 million dollars in South Pasadena near Cal State LA.

This soccer player probably bought in Rancho Cucamonga. You could get a 4,000 sf house on a full acre for 800k.

“including $20 to park at the Metrolink station near his home.“ Rancho Cucamonga is the only Metrolink Station to charge for parking in the entire rail system.
Upland and Covina charge too.
