    I'm taking nominations for Big Soccer's 2nd Annual MLS Donkey Of The Year Award. This award goes to any individual, group or anything in Major League Soccer whom made dubious actions during this 2003 MLS season. I will be counting the nomination votes from Big Soccer members like you and the final eight finalists will be announced in two weeks before the MLS Cup final and the members will be able to vote from the eight finalists to be the winner. Last year's Big Soccer Donkey Of The Year Winner was The City Of McKinney, Texas.

    BTW Each member can list up to 3 nominations.

    Now.....my nomination(s), to no surprise, is

    1) Mike Jeffries: No reasons to explain why.

    2) Dema Kovalenko: for hacking Ronnie O'Brien. :mad:

    3) Dragon Stadium: Again no reasons to explain why.

    Greg Andrulis for taking one of the most talented teams in the league and running them into the ground.

    Jim Smith for letting him do it.

    The knob who signed off on the move to Dragon Stadium.

    Trevor you should have mugged Andrulis when you had the chance in Berkley... ;)

    I'll agree Andrulis is a big goat for what hes done in Columbus.

    Dragon Stadium

    And just to go outside of the box, Ian Bishop for his constant bitching

    1. Garber - for kissin' Vegara's arse.
    2. Vegara
    3. Hristo - he's just a tool. Breaking that college kid's leg in half, and head-butting the 4th official, among other things.

    John Wagner. The HSG Exec who pushed the move to Dragon.

    Hands down.

    He is to MLS what Neville Chamberlain was for the British.

    Mark Connelly for saying Onstad should win goalkeeper of the year award. What a joke. He has been an ass kisser for a long time and now I totally lost all respect on him. How about looking at the games instead of the stats? If Onstad faces as many difficult shots as Tim Howard did in Metrostars, I wonder what his goal against average is like.

    One of the biggest misconception in soccer is that people believe a bad defense makes a good goalkeeper looks bad. The opposite is true. A good goalkeeper absolutely shines with a bad defense in front of him with one highlight reel save after another. A really good defense however, will often hide a mediocre goalkeeper. That's the case in SJ.

    10 minutes of additional excitement is no contest compared to Dragon Stadium or Giles.
