Yes, it is definitely.To be fair... that's better quality than it was 20 years ago.
IMHO MLS actually should have followed J-League model.
When J-League was founded they purposedly signed players who were also good “teachers”, not just aging superstars. They ended up signing Zico, Pierre Littbarski, etc who were excellent teachers for Japanese players. Same with the coaches they hired.
MLS chose (and until recently, still choose) the glam route without looking at the knowledge transfer aspect. They ended up with Lothat Matthaeus, Stevie Gerrard , Rafael Marquez and Frank Lampard.
