Sounders give Obafemi Martins deal worth $3 million a year, sources say

Obafemi Martins' new contract will pay him more than $3 million a year, sources say.

The Seattle Sounders have been promoting Obafemi Martins as a league MVP candidate, and they are rewarding him accordingly.

MLS commissioner Don Garber explains that the competition in the professional divisions of the United States is heading in the right direction, but he still sees areas for improvement.

As the MLS season enters its final weekend, the Supporters' Shield is still up for grabs, and the race for Eastern Conference playoff spots is heating up quite nicely.

Seattle Sounders proving their mettle in LA Galaxy showdown

ESPN FC's Stuart Holden and Paul Mariner discuss players' motivation for the MLS Supporters' Shield and whether teams should focus more on the MLS Cup.

For years, the LA Galaxy has been the arsenic that spiked the MLS Cup elixir of the Seattle Sounders. Never mind the occasional regular-season triumph, or the two U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal victories. It always seemed that when the stakes were highest, it was the Galaxy who prevailed.

Which is why Sunday's encounter between the two sides signaled a subtle shift in the battle for Western Conference -- and perhaps MLS -- supremacy. With the battle for the Supporters' Shield raging, there was L.A.,...
