    I've noticed recently soccertv is not listing all televised MLS mathces shown in the US.

    They failed to list the replay of Metro v Columbus last night on FOx Sports NY and do not have this match listed for 8/10, even though its on MLSnet:

    Columbus
    at Colorado
    - 9:00 p.m. ET
    newscenter

    I know Oliver is no fan of MLS, but to not list games is rather silly, no?

    Just use the official site. I've noticed a number of errors on SoccerTV in the past.

    I'm pretty sure Oliver stopped listing any Disney (ABC, ESPN) telecasts some time ago due to some legal issues or tiff between him and them (don't ask me what). That wouldn't explain not listing other MLS broadcasts though (such as those on FOX Sports, etc).

    Oliver is no fan of women's soccer either (largely due to Foudy) but he DOES list various WUSA matches and women's internationals - so a general dislike for MLS probably doesn't explain the ommisions either.

    Oliver has been banned from Big Soccer, but keeps popping up in various disguises so maybe he'll offer an explanation.

    At eurosport (soccer.com), they have a section where you can check your local soccer telecast which I have found to be very helpful. Better than soccertv in my opinion. It's at the bottom left of the page.

    I'm surprised he took this long to make good on his threats.

    Screw him.

    I was shocked to see that the YES Network is showing the Roma-Real Madrid friendly on Thursday at 9:30pm EST.

    I can't think of why they'd be showing this. Does anyone know if this is a good sign for things to come or just a one time event?

    Thanks
