Like Alessandro Del Piero, when they're good, they're very, very good.
When they're bad, they're horrid. Like Mario Jardel.
The marquee player concept appeared a great idea when the league started in 2005.
It went out of fashion for a time because of some flops, false starts and the success of lesser-known imports like Fred, Carlos Hernandez, Marcos Flores, Thomas Broich and Patrick Zwaanswijk.
