The Financial Details

Everyone in the DCU/MLS universe seems to like newly proposed deal for DCU, which Steven Goff details a little more in this morning's Post. A quick read between the lines indicates that Payne's roll will be little changed, except that he's more likely to become the public face of the ownership group based on his relationship with the DCU faithful. Lauterbach seems to be the big funding supports, so most of the team will probably be his.

So what's the negative reaction? None that I can find yet, but I suspect certain people, when hearing about a real-estate developer in SE who couldn't get a bid certified for the (Washington) Nats will definitely raise their voice at some point.
