This is the stupidest suggestion I've ever heard.

Agree with your Cameron comments. See below for mine.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||Cameron||
I'm more worried about Geoff Cameron, than Michael Bradley. The dude cost us two goals against Portugal.
What's surprising is that noone has noticed that good ol' #20 was right in the thick of both goals.
The guy fails to clear an easy cross across the middle in the 5th minute. Then, in the 94th minute, he easily coasts into the box and let's his man score the tieing goal. Yes, Bradley messes up and loses the ball, but it was 60 yards from goal. Clearly the team wasn't expecting this, as they were caught off guard on transition. But it still comes down the making that last painful sprint in injury time to clear the ball from the box.

Brian - Love the attention and write-up on the USMNT.
As to your comments on formations, I believe you are over-thinking the positioning and nomenclature. Teams naturally lose shape from their intended formation. Sometimes this is simply a cause and effect from their opponent's formation. Simply stated, pressure and space tend to result in on the field adjustments. Whether intended or not.
As an example, the diamond formation is often used to eat space. This cuts down on dribbling and passing lanes. Take a team like Portugal, who likely plays slanted to Ronaldo's (the left) side of the field. In this situation, I would an asymmetric heat map of where players occupied the field.

At least in CA, this is legal. People often assume it is illegal, so I assume this is the case with your statement.

The kid clearly has made a mistake. I'm not condoning what allegedly happened. I asking you whether he was just unlucky?

While I somewhat disagree that this snow was the heaviest of the season, I must acknowledge that I gave up shoveling my driveway and city sidewalk after 2.5 hours. Our last snowfall, a week ago with the freezing rain, was by far, the heaviest.
|24 weeks 6 days ago||Hmm||
Pretty sure the title if the thread was spoiler stuff. You shouldn't be surprised to read spoilers.

Listen, the kid is getting a full ride scholarship. As much he or his dad are Michigan fans, his dad should be happy wherever he goes. Not that i don't want him, but let's lay off thinking that a 17 year old is going to make a decision purely based on his "life long" fandom.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||Yep Yep Yep||
Couldn't agree more.
|27 weeks 5 days ago||Hmm||
Yet, they maintain a level competitiveness well above a team that is losing 10-11 players a year.
