Please help me research transfers shot down by MLS/Revs

I am working on an article for another SBN blog concerning the history of MLS and its clubs rejecting transfer offers. I immediately thought of Taylor Twellman, then I remembered an allegation that the Revs were extremely hesitant to let Dempsey move to Fulham. Did Shalrie Joseph stay put because the Revs blocked his potential transfer, or did Celtic backed out?

Of course, I hit upon this idea the day that Wikipedia is blacked out (bug your congressmen to block SOPA and PIPA, those acts could hurt SB Nation, too). I'd like to include fans' perspectives in the article anyway, so here are my questions:

- Which transfers do you remember the Revs (or any other MLS team) blocking? Any details such as dates, fee offered, amount of time left on the player's contract at the time would be fantastic. Please specify the level of confidence you have in the memory of those details.

- How do you feel about this issue? Should MLS teams transfer players in most cases if a fair price is offered? What would you have considered a fair price for the players' whose moves were blocked?
