    Today is the day for USSF presidential candidacy to come to a close. We'll know who will officially be running and who won't be.

    In a couple of days we'll possibly know news of MLS expansion.

    What's going on with the Crew these days? I remember seeing a while back that they were threatening to move the team to Austin. Is that still a thing?

    Yes, they are pretty much gone. The only thing to save them may be the State of Ohio's "Modell Law". A profeesional team can't leave the state without giving six months notice and offering to sell the team to local buyer's. The owner won't negotiate with Columbus city officials and the MLS commish seems to be reluctent to step in.

    The Crew drama will be on-going through 2018. Austin is pretty quiet.

    8 of 9 USSF presidential candidates have been confirmed by USSF Board of Directors. Those 8 will be announced once all background checks have been passed. That's the latest update.

    Not sure who the odd man (or woman) out is. One possibility is Paul Lapointe.

    No surprise, Nashville announced as 24th MLS franchise.

    Supposedly, next franchise will be announced after the New Year. Potentially have the next two after announced by start of first kick in March.

    MLS SuperDraft today. Here we get to see what kids get strung along and don't get a chance in an aging league that is the worst at getting young players opportunities.

    That sucked. Barca looks as bad as I’ve seen in years. Just awful.

    I don’t remember a player that good playing for 3 teams all while in his prime. Usually it’s an original (Sporting) then maybe 2. Maybe.

    Lukaku, Hazard, De Bruyne, M’Bappe, Griezman, Giroud and fucking Samuel Umtiti gets the only goal to send France through to the final. Lol.

    Supposedly the rumor today is that there is a group that Browns owner Jimmy Haslam is part of that plan to purchase the Crew and keep them in Columbus. I don't follow the MLS but thought this was interesting.

    I want to go to the Crew home finale on Sunday, but won't be happening now. Not until the SNAKE is out of control 100%. Nothing announced about that right now. #SaveDTheCrew

    Anyone watching the USMNT tonight? Some of these dudes are horrible. Arriola and Morris playing horrendous. Zardes ain’t much either.
