Grower Cleveland

The Cleveland City Stars will play in USL-1 next year. Well, that makes sense, they're a popular and successful club, and USL-1 will be short one team otherwise. Excellent choice, and they'll do very well. Anyway, it's not as if the USL is now instituting full-on promotion and relegation. Arguing with pro/rel advocates is like trying to hold off the undead. I'm just thankful that it's perfectly clear that this isn't the same thing as

Oh, CRAP.

Thanks, Mr. Holt. To your fans, you've given them an exciting new frontier of competition. To me, you've just implemented Plan 9.

Will it do any good to remind people that the last couple of USL relegations were for financial reasons? Will it do any good to remind people that on-field results have, in the words of Joey Saputo, Jacques Merde to do with promotion and relegation in the USL?

TOO LATE! THE ZOMBIES ARE COMING!
