Thanks for the link.
When does it start?
Crew Media Relations has an announcement on thecrew.com.
Hopefully it's as reliable as the Superdraft Tracker, lol
Just as an exercise, let's look at players Sigi might take today.
It's usually a safe assumption that he prefers West coast players, and UCLAplayers especially, here are some options:
Scott Bolkan – D – Stanford (Good Sized back line defender)
Brandon Owens – D – UCLA (A defender from UCLA; what else do you need to know?)
Amaury Nunes – F – Fresno Pacific (NAIA Forward who scored a lot of goals; Sigi can show everyone how brilliant he is)
Andrew Kartunen – GK – Stanford (We're gonna need another backup)
Matt Tracy – D – Cal State Northridge (Another West Coast Center Back - between them and NAIA Forwards, who could ask for anything more?)
Javier Ayala-Hill – F – California (Who knows? Who cares? He lives in Cali)
Spencer Allen – D – Maryland (Not West Coast, but a Maryland man. Sigi can't get enough)
Which was less reliable than Jamie Trecker.
Nothing happening @ the link & it's after 3pm.
Just talked to the asst. coach at Bradley...(Donoho is expected to be taken at some point...) I guess that MLS is revealing the results after 4:00, when all players have been chosen?
How come Kansas can reveal who they picked and get a press release out already?
Imagine supporting a team that actively keeps lets its fans know what is going on.
Because the draft has been over for at least an hour.
Because KC has an effective, efficient PR dept.
Because KC likes communicating with their fans rather than treating each tiny piece of information like a state secret.
Because MLS' "outside vendor" for website services hasn't gotten around to it.
Because MLS is embarassed by the decisions of the coaches and management?
Honestly, if anything were to be the death of MLS, it would be the lack information they provide to the few people who try to care.
how timely and appropriate. just received an email from the crew with this as the subject:
"Crew select Iro in 2008 SuperDraftCrew select Iro in 2008 SuperDraft"
Only took them nearly a week to get that one out. Good thing we have other teams reporters to rely on
Should we expect some sort of information in 60-90 days?
I wasn't expecting anything before showing up on opening day and reading the roster on the back of the GOAL! sign.
We here in Columbus believe in more reliable forms of comunication like the printed word over that complicated internet thing
Yes, but even the opening day roster isn't released until game five.
I stand corrected.
Good news is, the opening game is about 60 days away! So we should know before 90 days is up...
So the timeline is as follows
1/28 - Crew releases names of players selected in the supplemental draft
2/4 - Crew will finally release names of 4 foreign players that have been in town trialing since 1/28
3/1 - Crew will formally accounce that they have been training in a PR'less environment for the last 5 weeks
3/29 - Crew announce that none of the trialists made the team and we still don't have a DP.
Repeat as needed.
It's the "None of the trialists made the team and we still don't have a DP" Tour
New Albany 4/22
dc united picks
*UCLA defender Brandon Owens (U-17s, U-20s)
*West Virginia midfielder Dan Stratford (England native)
*Franklin Pierce (N.H.) goalkeeper James Thorpe (Division II champions)
Isn't Franklin Pierce one of the dead presidents that doesn't appear on money???
Seriously, thank God they'll have the names up on the matrix boards when they introduce the starters, it may be the only way we know who any of them are!
Per Big Apple Soccer:
Energy Drink selected:
No. 7 -- Danleigh Borman - University of Rhode Island
No. 21 -- Michael Palacio - Stony Brook Univeristy
No. 35 -- John Gilkerson - Winthrop
No. 49 -- Laurent Manuel - Brown
