That's what made Colbert so good. It was satire but it was actually believable...especially nowadays

Ok so I'll admit I've only heard good things but Jesus Christ, his bias against JH is far too extreme. Mandel acts like a jealous child towards Harbaugh. Having said that, these reviews are even making me consider it.

Not until they fire that whiny asshole, Mandel.

I'll be there. I'm also hunting for a tailgate as well...

 

I was hoping there would be more comments in here besides the requisite soccer-hater posts

Why don't you try posting soccer vids? He'll LOVE that

Fun fact, if you rearrange "Indiana Vassilev" it spells Aston Villa.......

 

 

Ok but it's, like, REALLY close

NYRB are a top club in MLS and have probably the best academy. 

 

FC Dallas is also known for development and they're one of the stronger sides, as well. 

Otherwise I agree with your comments.

Great stuff. With no US in the World Cup I thought we were going to be shutout (clean sheeted?) of solid footy content. Can't wait for the other articles. 

 

Also for those interested, if you go to https://ussoccer.com/rising they have some mini-docs on some of the aforementioned players. They just released the videos today.

I had PS Vue for FSD but now that the Wings are utterly un-watchable I'm not even gonna bother this year. I have my dad's FoxSports Go login and will watch on there if I'm willing and able. 

07/16/2018 - 12:04pm #1 picks in the MLS draft…

#1 picks in the MLS draft are irrelevant because that's only one of many ways a player can come to MLS. The best players DO NOT play NCAA soccer. Also, MLS players on designated player contracts can make way more money in MLS than they would in a smaller european league (which is what MLS is on par with). Hence a guy like Fagundez being a lifetime MLSer. I'm absolutely not saying MLS is on par with La Liga, but it is light-years ahead of where it was even just 5 years ago, let alone 10 or 20. As the talent grows, the clubs will get bigger and (hopefully) the league will let the clubs become their own entity. If that happens it will one day be a top league. Again, I know you don't care about that until/unless it happens, and I can totally appreciate that -- I'm just trying to make a point that it's not as "garbage" as some people think it is. Especially if it continues to grow at the same rate it has been (and the league actually, eventually allows teams to operate independently -- this is the thing that worries me the most). 

07/16/2018 - 10:55am Agreed -- too many parents…

Agreed -- too many parents are teaching hockey on grass.

 

I think this problem, to some extent, with resolve itself once the next generation comes through as Millennials and Gen Zs have kids. This group has a much better understanding of the game as we have grown up with it, unlike our parents. 

07/16/2018 - 10:52am This comment tells me you…

This comment tells me you don't actually watch soccer. 

Also, if you're going the CFB vs soccer on TV route, you're saying you'd rather watch Indiana play Northwestern for 4 hours with a commercial every 5 minutes vs soccer where you get to consume the sport, uninterrupted for 45 minutes (plus), with the whole thing over in 2 hours?

To each his own.

 

 

07/16/2018 - 10:48am It IS full contact. The…

It IS full contact. The diving can be eliminated with retroactive fines and suspensions and a clock that stops for injuries. I agree it's irritating as all hell, but when people say soccer is non-contact it's just not even close to accurate. Also, and I'm going off on a tangent here, but I just don't get how anyone can sit there and say they love baseball but they won't watch soccer because it's "boring". That argument shouldn't hold-up as long as people still enjoy baseball. 

07/16/2018 - 10:45am Also, I don't think your MLS…

Also, I don't think your MLS argument holds up. Sure there's better football available, but it's far away. Supporting your local club (if you have one), will pay big dividends to the sport in the future, here (not that you owe anything to soccer; I understand you're exercising your rights as a consumer to watch what you please). By that same token, the EPL owes America nothing, either -- why would they care about the development of soccer in the US? They only care that we consume their product (and we already do).

But what I'm getting at is (I assume) you choose college football over NFL -- thus you're choosing the inferior product (whatever your reasons may be). I watch EPL all the time, but I don't have a "club" per se. I'm literally thousands of miles away and don't feel connected to any particular team. For some, MLS provides that local club -- that connection to the game.

07/16/2018 - 10:35am I don't think you understand…

I don't think you understand what he's saying. Hockey (while I love it), is EXTREMELY inaccessible. Only first-world countries are any good at the sport. 

When it comes to countries having less money producing good players, that's exactly it. Our poor kids can't afford to play it in this country because it's inaccessible to them. In other countries, the kids are found, signed and PAID by professional clubs when they're little. In this country that's not how it works (with the exception of a few MLS clubs doing good work in their communities). There's also the issue of the NCAA -- obviously kids would be rendered ineligible for college  soccer (not that NCAA helps soccer in this country whatsoever) but parents would probably still be afraid to let their kids get paid a few bucks and miss out on the chance at a scholarship. 

07/16/2018 - 10:28am I don't care for this…

I don't care for this argument. You know how many countries in the world have more than 4 million people??! Why aren't we asking where they are? Why aren't THEY further than Croatia?

One of the US' biggest problems is that we are so large. Scouting on such a grand scale comes with many challenges. The other is cultural (incl. pay-to-play). Soccer is a sport played by everyone, everywhere; except the whole of the US. In the US it's a sport for the rich, suburban kids instead of everyone, like most other places. Imagine if basketball was inaccessible to the inner-city kids. Sure there would still be plenty of talent, but nowhere near as much. VERY simply put, this is what soccer in the US is.

I'm sure he does. And he's responsible for himself as well, too. But, I hope you're kidding on the overall comment.

Whenever I hear this, I read it as, "I've never actually sat through an entire episode". With the exception of literally maybe only 4 or 5 stinkers (out of like 180 episodes), they are STILL laugh-out-loud funny.

The weed probably bothered him more.

also, shoulder injury or not, Carr was far too conservative his whole career. I remember reading (on this site, I believe) that Carr had a worse record when leading at the half by less than 10 points than when trailing at the half by less than 10. That says everything to me.

I'm so sick of our fanbase sometimes. There's not a better coach out there who would coach at Michigan. All the whining and bickering from the fans obviously has an effect on recruiting...
