| Soccer Board|| re: MLS CBA: What changes do you expect? - svb on 1/12/15 at 10:54 pm|
I don't really care about a 4th DP spot at the moment. Salary cap NEEDS to go up.
As it is now, young players are getting peanuts compared to what they could get in Europe and that is where the focus should be for MLS; getting young guys to stay in the league. MLS is also lowballing college guys ...

[quote]We traded both Collin and Sapong? What?
Collin: His contract was expiring and he wanted more money than what we wanted to pay him. Opara could start in his place (or Palmer-Brown, for a while) or we will sign someone new. I think what we have at CB is suitable for the time, though....

[quote]Why can't ESPN get good cameras for the full field view in their soccer games. The close up HD is great but when panning the field its awful.
I agree. The contrasts seem terrible and it's never very sharp either....

Eric Bertrand Bailly was very impressive for Espanyol. Ray Hudson and Phil Schoen were raving about him.
All good, young CBs are named Erik....

I thought Illarra was quality today, controlled the tempo and passed the ball very well. Like him as a player and wish he'd get some more games....

When would you rather it be played? Play it today, and it's competing against college football for viewers.
Fans in LA, Portland, Columbus, Salt Lake, etc. don't have local NFL...

Oh it was. I was fortunate to be able to go down on the field immediately after the game and as I was walking down the steps I thought I was going to fall on my face because my feet were so numb.
Went through at least 12 of tho...

It is the StubHub Center now.
Went last year. I would freeze my arse off again if it meant SKC were hosting it again.

To be fair to him, he's not a LB either.... can't put together why he has played there so often for us.
Garza should be good there but ...

The reigning champs look to put their poor form behind them tonight as they travel to New Jersey to take on New York for the second time in a week.
Expect KC to play a bit different style and to sit back and attack NY on the counterattack. Insider information has revealed to me that Feilhaber is...

Eh, he wasn't doing much before the WC, to be fair.
Unless you are saying that his form shows that he still could have done something, in which case I agree with you....

He'll be okay, it was a small injury dating back to the start of the season, but it never fully healed and he just aggravated it.
Probably going to miss U20 WC qualifiers though......
