he would make a great USSF President, he got all the tools and contacts.
It's a job that requires political skill, not contacts. Sometimes, he's shown to have the political and diplomatic subtlety of a herd of stampeding wildebeest.
He's a guy who loves soccer first and is a good business man. But how does anyone know if he lacks political skills? And why is diplomatic skill important when our/the coach has a higher profile and is more quoted than a federation president? Then again you look what he did for the Metro's and just drop the idea.
I think Stillitano is good at business and contacts, but the field part is what he lacks, if you look at his record.
FYI - Dr. Bob Contiguglia has ZERO political or any other kind of savvy outside of heart surgery.
For that matter, neither does Dan Flynn & definitely not Jay Berhalter who really run US Soccer. Like 2 bulls in a china shop to be honest.
Stillitano is MUCH better than all of these characters, but chooses to go other routes because of the stifling attitudes and culture at the USSF.
Why the hell would Stillitano leave his business which makes his company MILLIONS to go work for someone else?
