  1. LOL. This guy is th clown jester. The gift that keeps on giving. His whole audience is little kids on the internet, and people who only follow Euro…..I mean the EPL, Real, Barca and Bayern….that is what Europe actually is u know. You lost 18 mill because you made an incredibly stupid investment. Moronically stupid. Like trying to save the Titanic with a single hand pump u bought at Walmart. Now yoiu are pissed you made this STUPID expenditure, that any idiot who knew anything about NASL, knew was moronically stupid and u want to recoup. Your fake 500 mill proposal, like Siva’s fake 4 bill TV rights proposal will be gobbled up by idiots and whore who need hits….but it means nothing. Hell, guys like JK and Siva were needed here in US soccer land. They are truly showing how dumb the fantasists are, and how easy it has been able to manipulate a generally uneducated soccwr public. These two fools have done more to give folsk a realistic understanding of the game here than nayone ever could…of course it comes with great damage, but at least reality is setting in.

    What a FN clown.

  2. There are some good games in there.


    Seattle-Sac might be one. Sacramento wants to be a MLS city, Seattle is injured beyond belief and wasn’t really that deep to start with.

    Minn-Cinci could be great after what Cinci did last year and they want to be a MLS city too.
