Commentary: Soccer's "Beckham Rule"

The New England Revolution and their fans are still reeling from the team's loss in Major League Soccer's championship over the weekend. The Revs have made it to the league's final game three times and lost it three times, all in overtime.

But WBUR's sports commentator Bill Littlefield is trying to look ahead to next season. He says things could be different, depending on how team owners react to a new rule from MLS officials.

This program aired on November 16, 2006. The audio for this program is not available.
