    Is this a true artical? If it is I can't believe it. First off tell Dema to fu!k off, his team is at home watchin the playoffs and we're still playing. Did Armas really say that about the ex- Sting players, I also find that hard to believe. IMHO this whole story is bull, I don't believe it.

    Dema has no life.

    One of the most funniest articles I've read in a while, true or not.

    You know what bothers me? The fact that everyone assumes that the team can't win at Soldier. That we lost home field advantage when we left the narrow confines of Naperville. That is retarded! Ask LA how we do on large fields. Look at our record at Soldier Field. They try and make it seem like the only reason our team has such a good record, was the small Naperville field. We have the best record because we are the best team in the league.

    I wrote the article (obviously) and yes, of course its a spoof...although some of it is true...marsch owning a building, mapp and capano living with magee's parents...

    and some of it is probably pretty close to the truth...i.e., the implied joke of dmb picking up the tab and dema wanting to hang around his old mates (he said all of the right things in the locker room after being eliminated...i.e., i love my new team, the guys on d.c. are great, being traded is part of soccer etc.....but the way he was saying the stuff to me it was as if he was trying to convince himself of that, he likes it in evidenced by him keeping a place here (that what he told me)...

    and to correct one poster....its wasn't from "Rev land"...its from chicago through and through...

    I enjoyed writing the article, glad you guys enjoyed it....

    Fine, but why could you draw only 15,000 for the EC final? Only a few thousand more than Naperville.

    A nice bit of humor.

    And there had to be at least 30 people at the USOC final because there were 20 or more Fire fans there.
