Well not really, I have been watching the Saturday matches and I decided to to bone up a little on the sport and tell you what I think. I will give you a few seconds to run for the hills 1. I like to call it soccer, not because of the NFL though. I just LIKE saying the word soccer for some reason. 2. Some of the team names can be corny, but all the team names in America are a liitle corny. That being said I like the team names. I like the Crew best of all. It's catchy and sligthy menacing. It's the best name in the MLS. The three guys should be drawn on the badge instead of using a photograph. The photgraph is a little bit too corny. The only team names I dislike belong to Dallas, DC and Utah. 3. Don't worry about the ties. It's possible to tie in hockey as well, but I can't remember the last time a hockey game I was watching ended in a tie. The longer the league sticks around the less ties we are going to see. As for playing abroad, as long as it means we get to advance or win a game no one is going to have a problem with it. 4. I just don't see the hatred most of you claim the mainstream media in America has toward soccer. 5. I have heard that in some leagues losing teams are sent down to other leagues. If this is true this practice is best left out of the MLS. Thanks for you time.
