Atlanta out there selling so many popular players and making the fans so mad that they went out and got a puppy:

Now that's an interesting take. Galaxy brain is telling me that Atlanta probably wouldn't mind a more player-friendly CBA and pulled that private plane stunt hoping for a reaction like that.

Is Rossi any good anymore? The last former-US-teen-sensation RSL had was Freddy Adu. It didn't work out so well.
And his one problem is he didn’t go to Russia that night because he had extracurricular activities, and they froze to death.

Adu didn't work out for a lot of teams.

I hate the stripes on the shoulder (there are more pics in the thread)

The only one that is truly ruined by the adidas stripes is Portland. (Others are ruined by different design elements). Was Columbus going for a Larry King Live tribute?

2 directions of stripes on the same jersey? Why not.

How about AC Miami instead

Has that team done anything right the first time?

So it is not okay to use a racial slur at practice as the coach.
..got it.

Only surprise is it was not Miami.

It is not ok. I would usually assume he’s out but, I no longer know what norms still hold.

Nashville's Anthem....

I like Judah & the Lion...but could be something they look back on and think...wow our Anthem was by those guys, that was a very 2019/2020 choice.
Seems like something a bunch of drunk drunk folks could chant.

Also pretty consistent start for MLS sides in Concacaf Cup matches. Go up and give up goals late because the team is not in shape for 90 minutes of competitive soccer yet....or just don't perform.

Stefan Frei got cleated, in the chest, and then gets a yellow card for dissent.



And the Sounders have a 16 year old kid playing for them, who got some run last night.

It's not bad. Will sound great as the teams come to the field in Seattle or Atlanta. 8000 fans on a Wed night in Colombus or DC....maybe a bit much.

I like to think of Zimmer going out to his barn and unleashing his battle violins for his themes...

Season kicks off tomorrow, but there were some crazy crazy events last night in Concacaf Champions League

Tigres goes through on a 94th minute goal by their goalie.
Seattle loses in PKs
and LAFC makes up 2 goals from the first leg with an amazing 3rd goal.

So quarters have LAFC v. Cruz Azul, Atlanta v. America, Tigres v. NYCFC, and Olimpia v. Montreal

I've stayed up past midnight the last two nights because I've gotten caught up in matches.
