The most important decision, FC Dallas protected Matt Hedges.

FC Dallas Auto Protection List

Generation adidas players who have not graduated and Homegrowns under 25 years this season are auto-protected. FC Dallas has more than most other teams, a big advantage in this process.

Marco Farfan was a surprise auto-protect. My math said last year LAFC protected him.

    1. It indicates they are still trying.
      In fact, as I tweeted a little while ago, I learned that Hedges and his people met with FCD again yesterday.
      So they are still talking. That’s good.
