First, Simon Borg comes up with his "independent assessment" that Dempsey did not intentionally punch a guy in the balls but was rather trying to sway his hand away. Hours later the MLS Disciplinary Committee takes no action against Dempsey for something that the general public agrees is inexcusable. Not sure how they're fulfilling their mission statement. Mission Statement: To preserve the integrity and reputation of the game and Major League Soccer, and to assist in ensuring player safety.

Michael Bradley Quote

"On turf, it’s about playing off second balls, tackles, interceptions, loose balls," Bradley said. "It’s not a day for putting together a million passes and necessarily playing through the midfield. It’s about putting good balls forward and moving your lines."

Brent Richards is possibly one of the first Americans to have surgery on his ALL, which seems to have helped heal his lingering ACL injury.
