Looking at the salary numbers though Orlando outspends Atlanta by about $5million. Granted that difference will be wiped out when Kaka leaves but he's the only player on the squad making over $1million. Next highest paid is Nocerino at $800K which is insane because he's probably our 9th or 10th best player.

That's a league-wide issue though: teams blow a ton of money on one or two aging DP's. Atlanta's plan was to find 3 younger guys in the 22-26 range they could spread their DP money out on. But the only way that works is if you have a coach like Tata who can ID those players and sell them on the idea they can develop in MLS toward a bigger payday under his tutelage.

I'm fully aware, was just hoping since Orlando was good at building such a strong squad on a lower league budget they would be able to do that once they moved up. When the new owner came in and installed his people that kind of went out the window but this past off-season with the new GM and Kreis in charge was a definite upgrade though.
