Revs Nuggets in Soccer America Wrap

New England Revolution fans can find some good news at the bottom of a kind of wrap article on Major League Soccer (MLS). While the piece leads by looking at the potential arrival of Brazilian great (and dirty, dirty cheater) Rivaldo to the league, it closes with this note on notable Revs' players:

"The Revs have reportedly told the league to refuse all offers for [forward Taylor] Twellman this season and have apparently issued a hands-off order on midfielder Shalrie Joseph as well. Glasgow Celtic offered $1 million for Joseph last August and despite upping its bid this month has again been turned down, according to a source."

Happy as I am to see them stay, I have to wonder how this is going down with Joseph and Twellman. The latter sounds cheery enough in a Q & A session with Andrea Canales - though, admittedly, the Revs never enter the discussion - but still. I don't know either player, of course, and therefore can't speak to whether the Revs' position leaves them fuming. But there's a kind of knock-on effect in play here, something that could affect players outside the league with European ambitions. Does this kind of thing make them wary of signing with MLS?
