re: MLS Decision Day and Atlanta United! - bdskelton
FYI, ESPN is playing whip-around coverage of all 11 games at 3:00. Could be a fun way to keep up if you're not interested in any one particular game....

MLS Decision Day and Atlanta United! - bdskelton
I'm pumped to watch Atlanta United vs Toronto today, and hope that at a minimum Atlanta can secure home field advantage in the knockout-round (though 2nd place and a bye would be nice). This is the first year I've watch MLS the full season, and I've done it primarily via Atlanta United (though I ...

re: The day after.... Did it really happen? - bdskelton
[quote] Soccer development in the US was set back at least a decade in 90 minutes last night.[/quote] It's easy to say that, but it really isn't true. It sucks, and missing out on the World Cup misses an opportunity at a huge boost that we typically count on once every 4 years. But soccer has g...

[quote]you're just not going to all of a sudden have the grass roots support like Leeds or Fulham...[/quote] Yet you have teams like Cincinnati FC drawing 20,000 - 30,000 regular in the USL. Hell, little ole Chattanooga FC has an awesome fan base in the NPSL. There is grass roots growth all over...

[quote]However, I'm not seeing anyone offering up any other solutions that would give the potential results that pro/rel in MLS could 10 yrs down the line for the USMNT. I mean it is a proven system. [/quote] Just spouting out "PRO/REL!!" At every opportunity isn't a real solution either. T...

re: This too shall pass, support U.S. soccer and MLS will pay off in the long run. - bdskelton
[quote] The MLS has done little to help the national team. If anything it hurts bc it gives all the Central American players a place to play. You can have a very good national team without a dominant domestic league. Look at Serbia, Iceland, Ireland, Denmark, Poland, Peru, Paraguay, etc[/quote] ...

Tonight sucked. Like really fricking bad sucked. And it really bums me out to think that this could stunt the growth of Soccer here in the states. BUT, for the long term growth of soccer here in the good ole USofA, the same things need to happen that have always needed to happen. For me it's...
