A legitimate question here, I often have wondered this, are foreign players briefed or warned about US law and customs? For instance, say in X latin country the drinking age is 18, can have open containers in public, maybe they are not as strict on the drinking and driving? Are these players addressed to US law or are they simply expected to know? Also have wondered, are players told about the good and bad parts of the cities? Or are players simply expected to have a smart head on their shoulders? Coming to the US can be a culture shock for many foreigners as certain manners and laws are probably far more strict in the US than they could have ever imagined. How certain bars and clubs have to close at specific times. Etc. I would imagine each team has someone who can sit a player down and give them a run down on the do's and don'ts. I ask this because of this recent incident in Portland involving a Colombian player Valencia who is 20 years old. http://www.oregonlive.com/timbers/index.ssf/2012/07/portland_timbers_jose_valencia.html A young foreign national, who probably has little to no understanding of the English language, and probably knows less of specific US laws. I certainly wouldn't know 100% how to prepare everyone who comes into the US but I would imagine some people would give them a heads up? Has Henry been warned of certain areas of NJ/NY? Tim Cahill? Was Beckham warned about areas of LA? I know to many it is OBVIOUS and most of these guys have already traveled the world and probably knew these cities well in advance of ever having signed on. Just curious what each team's protocol is here or is there a league mandate?
