    The next US Olympic Qualifiers are Nov 15th in St. Kitts and Nov 19th in Germantown, Maryland.

    Do you think there's any chance that we lose the services of Beasley, Gray, Mapp, Pause and Jaqua for these qualifiers?

    On the one hand, we expect to be playing on the 14th and you wouldn't think that Beasley and Gray who would likely go a full 90 that evening would be fit to play the next day. But since it is critical that we qualify for the olympics, Rongen may not want to take any chances at any step of the way and may want to field his full team for all games.

    On the other hand, we should be able to handle St. Kitts easily without taking MLS Starters from teams involved in the Conference Championships on the 15th or from those involved in the MLS Cup for his game on the 19th.

    Have any of you guys with "inside" knowledge heard anything about this being a potential issue?
