    I still don't know how I feel about an MLS team sharing a stadium with a Division 2 college football team...It doesn't seem like it would be good for the turf, unless MLS moves its season back to end earlier, so maybe they could keep the UCO Bronchos off the field in September? If a tray system is used, I hope it's better than the one in The Jersey Swamp.

    As for the article on Donovan's finishing...it almost makes you wonder if it was really Kahn, and not Donovan, who caused him to blow a few clear chances in Korea?? This is something he will have to get worked out if he wants to stay up top...if not, he will have to look at developing as a Mid or withdrawn forward.

    From Burn schedule story:

    "And the Burn got no relief from MLS. Coach Mike Jeffries says playing Sunday's game a day earlier in Denver (Invesco Field is available Saturday) would help. But MLS prefers not moving games if possible."

    If Invesco was available on the Saturday all along, why schedule the game on a Sunday in the first place?

    5 games in 3 days with an 18 man roster is INSANITY.

    "Past hinders 'Gazza' in signing with league: D.C. United officials acknowledged to the Washington Times that potential protest from women's rights groups played a role in their decision not to sign "Gazza" after a two-week tryout. "

    Do women's groups know MLS even exists?

    Excellent analysis of the SJ-Dallas trade by Tobias Xavier in the Star Telegram. Just goes to show you how complicated MLS roster management is with discovery picks and future considerations, especially when mixed in with the salary and international player restrictions. When you just look at it as Cerritos-Graziani, it doesn't look so good for Dallas, but when Xavier provides a more complete analysis, you can only conclude that Jeffries and Swift look like they really know what they're doing.

    In DC, I'm sure some group will find something to complain about.

    Yes it is. I missed that one.

    Fire fans will love this quote:

    "When Ariel Graziani was born, the soccer gods dipped his legs in supernatural waters."

    I like the way that trade turned out for us in Dallas, but I do miss Graziani.

    And yet the NFL won't think twice about a habitual wife-beater.

    That's nice window-dressing and all, but I can't for the life of me believe that the guy just wasn't good enough.

    I've always liked Ariel too. I now think of him as "Diva" - my girlfriend's name for him - which isn't really a very endearing name for a soccer player, but really, about sums it up.
