Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while–yeah, I know, I haven’t posted much recently–will know I’m not a big fan of the All-Star Game. But what are you going to do? The league has managed to stumble on a a formula which works. The MLS XI vs some “big club” from another country seems to be selling out stadiums and attracting a large enough TV audience on a Wednesday night to keep ESPN happy.
I’m sorry, I’ve put up with this for years. However, this soccer related elitism our friends from Britain (or who want to be from Britain) want to impose on us “Yanks” has got to stop.

We landed in Mrs. PZ’s hometown. A mid-sized midwest city. I’d basically given up on being the chance of watching a match in an ale house of some kind. I grew up with the belief that soccer is a social sport. You watch it with friends…or at least cool strangers. However, it didn’t seem to be possible here.
Maybe it’s just me but I don’t see how any of this is needed and I’m not sure what the Liverpool faithful hoped to accomplish by treating Hicks Jr this way. To be honest, I haven’t followed all of this that closely but the only things I can figure out the Liverpool fans have to complain about is 1) the Hinks-Gillette pockets aren’t as deep as they’d like and 2) the way they handled the Rafa situation (looking to replace him that is)
It’s unfortunate but if the owners don’t …
Enough already! I’m sorry, but if I read or hear one more person complain about the MLS Playoff format…well, I don’t know what I’m going to do but I’m tired of it already.
This is Year 12, and for twelve years people have complained about the format and that we have playoffs at all. Get over it people.
If the owners wanted the top teams to win through to the finals, they would probably just do away with the first round….actually not a bad idea, but it won’t happen. Besides, everyone …
I sure made the wrong career choice.
I’m sure any fine or suspension will be worth it.

It’s easy to tell myself, “Ah, I’ll post that tomorrow,” and then do the same thing the next day. It’s easy to get well behind…much like school work. Anyway, I’ve got a little time so let’s get caught up.
The MLSPU gave out a list of all the players salaries a couple weeks ago. Don Garber made some interesting comments about the difference in salaries. At the time, I thought they were a bit out of line. He’s hardly comparing apples to apples here. The …
Yep, this post is about Beckham as well…sorta…
At the end of last season there was an announcement by MLS that teams could sell shirt sponsorships on their jerseys as long as it was worth at least $500,000 per year.
Well, I’m guessing that the addition of Beckham to the roster had a lot to do with this but it looks like CitiBank are getting it’s checkbook out.
A more likely blockbuster announcement from MLS is the jersey sponsorship for David Beckham’s Los Angeles Galaxy. Two sources have confirmed that the bidding is …
We’ve started the second season of two-leg playoffs in MLS and the complaining about lack of home field advantage has returned. The primary argument is that the new format doesn’t give the team with the better regular season record a real advantage. True, that the way it was designed. Yes, it does make the fact that teams have played 30 matches to weed out 2 teams only to play a two-leg playoff with no advantage for the team who’d preformed better. Columbus who hasn’t lost a match in over half …
What is it about the news today that the planned MLS All-Star game against Real Madrid so amusing? Certainly, it could have been a great event for ABC to broadcast. However, I do not think Don Garber and co really thought things through very well. When MLS first announced the match up, it was due to take place in June. With Real Madrid possibly being involved, the date of the match was moved to go up against the ChampionsWorld Series which involved just about every other major team in Europe …
