With Euro 2012 over, the Olympics several weeks away and foreign clubs' preseason tours still around the corner, this weekend will be all about MLS.

Saturday night's TV slate is headlined by NBC Sports' broadcast of the clash between the Colorado Rapids and Seattle Sounders at CenturyLink Field. With Seattle winless in nine and Colorado coming off a midweek loss at home to Vancouver, both sides will want to get back on track with a win.

On Sunday, ESPN will televise the Los Angeles Galaxy's trip without David Beckham to take on the Chicago Fire, who have surged toward the top of the Eastern Conference by going 3-0-1 in their past four. And Galavision will broadcast a Northeastern rivalry match between the New York Red Bulls and New England Revolution.

  1. From what I’ve heard its his choice and that he wants to stay til the end of the year. If he was unhappy I’d say sell him, but if he’s happy, let him stay til the end of the year, keep his rights, and let him run off to his 4 and a half year Wigan contract that’s supposedly waiting for him.

  2. say goodbye to the money you could have made and destroying MLS reputation as a supposed “gateway” to Europe. Most likely he won’t come back since you guys wouldn’t sell him, I wouldn’t blame him either

  3. This Fire fan is more than happy with the Wigan rumor being thrown around, with him leaving at the end of the season. I’d rather maintain his rights for if he comes back.

  4. It will be sad to see him go but hey this shows the growth of the league. All leagues develope and sell players even the best leagues its just they keep or buy most of them. If MLS can get 2-3 million for pappa I say job well done

  5. You mean Marco Pappa of the Chicago Fire? The guy whose great free kick in June against the USMNT gave Guatemala the equalizer? Who is bidding for him, Mr. Lazio? Care to explain?

  6. MLS just sell Pappa already, u got several multimillion dollar bids lined up, contract is up in dec, he’ll leave for free easily
    bad business MLS
