I'm still enthralled with Carlos Metadieri. I'm enough of a kid that the fact that he and I are facebook "friends" still tickles me.

      My favorite Rochester Lancers reference is actually Laurie Abrahams. I rather remember hearing radio descriptions of him demolishing the Striker defense. The actual record is short and tenuous. but that is what I hear in my head.

      Hiya Bill. You behaved yourself when it would have been funnier if you didn't, and you raised good points in your recent blog. I kinda missed the party. But I guess I don't like saying, "even though this is a topic where I have some, you know, knowledge, unlike most of the time, my best answer is 'I don't know, but good question.'"

        I have to say that this is one of those times when I'm not exactly sure HOW I feel about it. And I really didn't think I was coming down hard on either side of the question, just pointing out some inconsistencies, for which I thought being called a misogynist and anti-woman was a bit overboard.

        And your particular expertise would have been greatly appreciated. Then again, it always is.

      I'm an American historian so I don't mind the Don't Tread on Me flags at USMNT matches.
      But I worry if this is a trend, your thoughts?

      Bill--
      Apologies. That was a complete accident and entirely my fault.
      I have received many requests in that thread over the weeks to simply move posts that folks think are book-based spoilers. I treated yours the same as all the others -- except for the giant mistake of posting them to the same forum (as opposed to the non-public "recycle bin" forum).
      I did that hours ago and just now noticed and tried to move the new thread immediately. And THEN I screwed that up and left it as an "expiring delete" meaning the remnants of the bad thread I created is still visible for some time. I'm apparently really tired.

      The thread title "spoilers" was just typed in because there has to be a thread title when I make those moves. It's just perfunctory, and I'm glad it wasn't my usual titles of "crap" or "whatever." Because, again, it was not intended for public viewing.

      I've done this for years, but that's the first time I've made that mistake.

      Sorry.

      Bill,

      Sorry if I got Wahl up in arms. He still avoided he quesiton of why the 'media' ignores such stories. You'd think the larger audience afforded SI would be interested.

      Bill re the caution for a handball:

      actually - here is the specific lotg that refers to cautioning for a handball:

      Disciplinary sanctions
      There are circumstances when a caution for unsporting behavior is required when a player deliberately handles the ball, e.g. when a player:

      •deliberately and blatantly handles the ball to prevent an opponent gaining possession
      •attempts to score a goal by deliberately handling the ball

      pretty clear that the first is what happened, and she should have been cautioned.

      Can't wait to read your upcoming article on the CFU's allegations against Chuck Blazer for being "racist!" It really just writes itself these days, doesn't it?

      Your welcome, but which comment? I do stand up and write op/eds in real life. Maybe I drunkenly posted something that has legs.

      (The better half is usually just that, better. My gf likes my play of "The good things don't come easy my ass, I come real easy. And I'm doing pretty good.)

      Hey - On your blog post that was posted today about bin Hammam's pending candidacy, you misspelled the phrase "mortal fear" in your post. You actually typed - "mortal far" without the e.

      Bill, this is truly excellent work. I greatly appreciate what you are doing here. How can you get this into the public conciousness? Are there any indications in other football regions that what has taken place in Europe is spreading? Please keep this going with updates! Thanks, great news. True news.

      Brilliant and witty. Unfortunately, also very true about FIFA.

      Thanks for the rep bill.

      I'm just getting into the swing of things, can you tell? Fine tuning my flame tip to avoid 'uber-partisan' retorts. And god bless Morbo! That was sorta genius even if he didnt intend it that way.
      Figure if I offend everyone equally.....

      I've always enjoyed your reports on the FIFA execs. I'm glad to see your predictions come true. If any major media outlet has the balls to hire an investigative journalist to monitor FIFA, I hope they look to you.

      Go Crew!

    The only thing that commends MLS..-- and I do mean the only thing --. is the sense of community it engenders among its fans. MLS is a substandard pro soccer league operating in a country with many other pro sports leagues and entertainment diversions. If MLS will not respect the community of fans that support it, MLS ultimately has nothing of value to offer its customers. - Don Gagliardi
