The 2006 Campaign Committee: Meeting Agenda

Given that this is DC, and there is nothing fun and joyful that we as a city can't turn into a boring procedural event in accordance with Roberts' Rules of Order [New Revised by Robert Boswell], I have saved some time for your next DC United Committee meeting, and prepared your agenda.

  1. Introductions and Opening Remarks
  2. Old Business
    1. The Freddy Adu / Piotr Nowak Playing Time Discussion: Are they happy again? Or is everyone just pretending until the next flare up?
    2. The Back Line: Why not four? Which back do you hate the most? / Who do you think is getting too much, too little time in the 3-5-2?

    3. Chicago vs. New Jersey vs. New England: Who do we hate the most? Who should we hate more?
  3. New Business
    1. Wings and Prayers: Dema is gone, can Tino and Josh fill gap? Or should this topic matter veer once again into the merits of the 4-4(box)-2, 4-4(diamond)-2, and the 3-5-2 until everyone sounds like they're arguing about number theory in octal.
    2. New Members: Please welcome our draft picks, and let's think about camp. Also, which of our draft picks will be quietly released in two years' time?
    3. Threat Assessment, Eastern Conference: Are the Metros improved? What about Columbus. Is there anything to worry about KC? Can we catch New England? Oh, and Chicago. We hate them, right?
    4. Threat Assessment, Western Conference: Do the RSL/CUSA/Rapids moves matter? Will Houston take a hit in performance after the move? The Galaxy are the MLS Champs, how much more insufferable will their fans be?


There, now the chair will entertain a motion to adopt the agenda...

Can we fake that DC United is from the STATE of Washington...not Washington DC...soley for the purpose of getting moved into the Western Conference.

Man..the east will be tough. You know that Mo and Sigi will make their teams better..NE will always be good, Chicago with loads of young talent..maybe KC is the loan weak team..but they'd easily qualify in the West.

Matt: Agreed on everything you say. The W in West stands for Weak. Two expansion teams, and only Houston and LA seem to be worrisome. The East, as you point out, is top to bottom scary, with the possible exception of the Wizzz.

Pete: I like it! Your amendment, barring objection, is accepted, and the agenda shall be adopted. So ordered.
