TORONTO - Robin Fraser recalls lining up alongside a 21-year-old Greg Vanney in the Los Angeles Galaxy backline.He was always observing, Fraser recalled Thursday. He was a pretty quiet kid initially but it became very evident very quickly that he was one of those guys who was learning, he was always learning.And he was a tremendous player as a 21-year-old and just got better as time went on. We forged a pretty good friendship really quickly. I always appreciated his work ethic and the way he thought and continues to think about the game — thats been one of our biggest bonds.The two have been reunited with the 48-year-old Fraser signing on as an assistant coach under Vanney at Toronto FC.Vanney, now 40, was an assistant to then head coach Fraser at Chivas USA.Our relationship goes back many many years ... at the end of the day, we see things very similarly and yet differently enough that the conflict is good, Fraser said.For Vanney, Fraser is a valued friend who knows the league inside and out. Fraser played 10 seasons in MLS for the Los Angeles Galaxy, Colorado Rapids and Columbus Crew from 1996 to 2005, appearing in 260 regular-season games.The former U.S. international and two-time MLS defender of the year started his coaching career at Real Salt Lake as an assistant from 2007 to 2010, helping the team win the MLS Cup in 2009. He was head coach at Chivas in 2011 and 2012.For me he was a competitor, he was a leader, said Vanney. Obviously an phenomenal athlete but also a very savvy tactical player in his approach. And was always good for young players and bringing players along.Fraser, who spent the last two years as an assistant coach with the New York Red Bulls, joins Nick Theslof, Dan Calichman and Jon Conway on Vanneys coaching staff.Assistant coach Jason Bent will spend more time with the clubs new USL Pro affiliate.Jim Liston, director of sport science, and Michael Rabasca, director of cognitive development, are also on Vanneys staff.

METAIRIE, La. -- The NFL Players Association confirmed Wednesday that it filed a grievance on behalf of Jimmy Graham concerning the Saints tight ends franchise tag designation. At issue is whether the NFL was correct to apply the tight end tag to Graham or whether Graham should have received the more lucrative wide receiver tag, a difference of $5 million. The NFLs current collective bargaining agreement states that a player should be tagged according to the position at which he lined up most often. Graham and his agent, Jimmy Sexton, are contending that the frequency with which Graham lined up split out from the line merits the $12.3 million receivers franchise tag, not the $7 million tight end tag. No date for a grievance hearing has been set, but the filing alone could provide Graham with a measure of additional leverage as he seeks to have his franchise tag designation removed in favour of a long-term extension. July 15 is the final day a team can sign 2014 franchise players to long-term extensions. Grahams agent, Jimmy Sexton, did not return a message seeking comment on the matter. Saints general manager Mickey Loomis said Wednesday there had been no progress to report on negotiations with Graham. The Saints have asserted that lining up split from the line is a significant part of every tight ends job descripttion.dddddddddddd When asked in January whether the Saints viewed Graham as a tight end under the leagues CBA, Loomis responded: "Isnt that what we drafted him as? Isnt that what he made the Pro Bowl as? Thats what we see him as -- a tight end. "The tight end has always been part of the passing game," Loomis continued. "Hes part of the running game. So hes part of both. So are receivers. So are running backs." According to an analysis by ESPN Stats and Information, Graham lined up split out from the line on 67 per cent of his snaps -- 45 per cent of the time in the slot and 22 per cent out wide. Unless the Saints and Graham pre-emptively agree on a long-term deal, an arbitrator may have to decide whether those numbers alone, under the language of the CBA, would require the league to apply the receiver designation to Graham. If so, it likely would set a precedent for negotiations involving other tight ends who figure prominently in their teams passing games, and could substantially lower the franchise tag number for tight ends who more often line up next to offensive tackles. It could also affect other positions in which players have varying roles, most notably some outside linebackers in a 3-4 defensive scheme, who could argue their right to receive the higher defensive end tag.
