Forgive me if I don't completely understand the economics of MLS. Let's get that out of the way. I read Wikipedia's page on MLS' designated player rule, and it seems there's no limit on the number of DPs a team can have, so that's not a problem (with Henry and Marquez already, though hopefully Marquez is gone soon).
With Didier Drogba recently announcing he would not return to Chelsea, could he join Thierry Henry and Kenny Cooper at the front of New York's offense? With all three, maybe Henry would slide back to an attacking midfield position?
How amazing would a front trio of Henry, Cooper and Drogba be? Not to mention fun to watch. He'd be expensive. What, at least $5M/year? But I'm sure it would increase attendance not just in New York/Jersey, but for every road game they played as well (and doesn't MLS pay a portion of every DP's salary?).
I'm not sure how close NY is to the salary cap, but I know a DP adds $335K to that number (though only $168K if he's added midway through the season).
Is it a crazy idea?
