Major League Soccer player salaries released

So much for a slow news day with the Sounders taking their second straight day off from training at Starfire.

First came a report from ESPN’s Jeff Carlisle confirming rumors that had been floating around for weeks: Chivas USA will suspend operations at the end of this season and “go dark for a minimum of two years” as a condition of agreement of sale to an unnamed investment group.

Then, a few hours later, the MLS Players Union salaries were released. Some Sounder notables: Clint Dempsey’s guaranteed 2014 compensation is more than $6.6 million, while Obafemi Martins’ is more than $1.7 million. New signing Onyekachi Apam is on the books at $60,000.

The full list be found here — hey, what else were you going to on this typically overcast late-September evening?
