MLS News

First off let me apologize for being MIA for a month. I was really busy and even though I managed to keep up with DC United, I didn't have enough time to post (and D usually beat me to it anyways). I am hoping to get a couple of posts out that I have backlogged, but for now here is a little recap of what is going on around the league.

As we all know, MLS likes to wait for big events to announce even bigger plans. Its a publicity thing. We are coming up to the biggest event of the MLS season and both the rumor mill and actual news stories about Major League Soccer's direction are coming out fast and furious.

Here is an updated rundown so far:

The Don gives his state of the league address.

The Don had a chat yesterday at MLSnet.

Not Doug Logan has his best and shortest post of the year. Saint Louis.

365 Soccer announces an MLS Youth Development initiative.

Dick’s Sporting Goods Park will be the home of the Colorado Rapids.

And if you didn't catch Stienberg's Bog about Boz, its a great one.

Red Bulls executive says the US has no tradition.

Love that Dick's is getting the naming rights. Now hopefully I will see some MLS branded merchandise in the stores. Never seen a stich of it down here in Richmond.

The Red Bull article sums up why I hate Red Bull. They seem to have no love or passion for the sport only see the dollars and cents. I don't know what else to say. I hate Red Bull.

D,
Also of note, la opinion claims that Figo has signed a 5 year 20 million dollar contract with MLS. Probably heading to NY or NE. Here's the link...

What are they going to call that park? DSG Park? Dick's Park?

I assume you're a DC fan and you'll despise the thought, but, imagine being a Metro supporter and having to read that crap, rwhgeek.

Worst. Season. Ever.

Garber mentioned the possibility of a second team in NY. Wow. They're not even supporting their first team.
