We have recently been seeing a rash of posters who think this forum is a dandy place to bash on American soccer, whether it be our deficiencies on the field, our lack of "football culture", or what have you. This forum is not "World Rivalries." The standard of discussion needs to be more constructive and focused on the sport in the United States. That doesn't mean blind jingoism; nor does it mean that we don't recognize that the sport has a long way to go here. But the focus is on the sport in the USA, and the standards for what consitutes trolling, for example, are calibrated accordingly. Thank you for your understanding.
