    Eh, they say it'll start at 8 pm, but I highly doubt it. 11 minutes of 4th quarter college football will most likely take 45 minutes to an hour.

    ESPN needs to get it's head out of it's ass when it comes to these games, or just get rid of soccer. I'll gladly watch games on crappy directkick channels or FSC if they would start on time.

    There's a way to trick ESPN360 into opening the web-player even if your ISP doesn't support it by simply changing the adress in the adress bar, but the player still won't load any channel for me, so i dunno if it really works.

    Wynalda is a pain...to say Boswell was benched because of his criticism of ESPN's love affair with Becks...c'mon...all he said was why not show the team that won the game and the guy who scored the winning goal...Wynalda is seriously on crack sometimes...that comment was just out of line and showed how dumb he is.

    Well we fired our GM today due to the lack of fans, so atleast were doing something about it.

    This game seriously has some awesome attacking. The way Chivas moves is just amazing. You can start to see a little bit of difference in between the play of the teams. Both play to a certain style but in different ways.

    I'm surprised there's not a thread dedicated to that comment. I'm definitely not a Wynalda fan, and I'm sincerely puzzled by the people who admire him for "keeping it real," but even *I* was taken aback by the stupidity of that comment.

    Everywhere and Nowhere.....I'm the wind, baby.
    I think, maybe, most of us have become numb to his ramblings. In the 2nd half he made two of his signature meaningless statements: As the half began he said the teams were looking to 'open up the game' - This after a 2-1 very intertaining 1st half. Then, at under 30 minutes and the game at 2-2, he says, "This could get interesting"....Oh really, Eric?

    I know a lot of people don't like DOB, but I swear to God sometimes I think he's the only one watching the game.

    EDIT: I thought the game itself lived up to the expectations.
