Pushed to the Inland Empire by the high cost of living, LAFC's Benny Feilhaber learned to enjoy his hours-long commute by train

<mod cut: please don't quote more than a couple sentences>

“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.

So what? Maybe he should’v went to college to get a REAL career. Plus this article is exaggerating. The IE isn’t even THAT far. East Coasters make those types of commutes all the time such as New Jersey to Manhattan and even Connecticut suburbs to Manhattan. Tokyo’s even force. What makes this situation any different or special?

The title of the article is even more laughable. “Pushed to the IE” LOL. No one’s ‘pushing’ him or forcing him to live there. He simply decided to by choice.

“Feilhaber and his wife started exploring housing options in the area. At his previous stop, he lived in a 4,600-square-foot house he purchased in the Kansas City suburb of Overland Park. He and his wife have two daughters, ages 4 and 2, as well as a dog. He wanted to provide them with as much space as they had in their old home.“

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.

Are they implying that a professional athlete should live better than the rest of us?

No, the article isn’t implying anything. They’re just being nosy and care too much about people’s life’s and commutes. Taking Metrolink to LA from San Bernardino and Riverside county is nothing knew. People have been doing this for decades.

Her six-hour commute each day seems crazy, but her affordable rent is not

Lol. He got a 6 bedroom house for his wife, 2 kids under 5, and a dog. They use one for a guest room, one for the live in nanny, each kid gets their own room, and why should his wife and him share a room? They looked for a 7 bedroom so the dog could have his own room as well, but $625K/year only goes so far, even in Rancho Cucamonga.

"Professional soccer player forced to live in the I.E. and make the hours-long trek on the Metrolink..."

Ah, yes, someone is pointing a gun at his head and forcing him to live in the I.E.
