Certain FIFA officials took bribes...I am SHOCKED!!! :rolleyes:

Almost as shocking as the ice dance toe-tapping skandal, innit?

The NY Cosmos will play in Div 2 NASL next season (2013).

NJL (Much suprised by this...they were supposed to be MLS's team #20....maybe that honor will go to Div 3 Orlando now?...)

NJL, ya gotta think that the Cosmos are VERY high on Don Garber's list of expansion teams. But no stadium = no MLS

Honestly, i don't think MLS is any hurry to bring new teams in right now, despite the successes of the last 6 new teams. The goal is to bring in teams that will get supported like what's going on in Portland, and until somebody can convince MLS that they can approach that, no dice.

Dempsey to Liverpool? Hope he enjoys the Europa League. LOL Ioana would have loved to take you up on that offer but I'm stuck here in the boonies a.k.a. Toronto. :P

The fall of Rangers has been remarkable. Down to the third tier in Scotland, looks like the American players are all going to bolt too.

John Terry has been cleared of the racism charge against him.

John Terry has been cleared of the racism charge against him.

Interesting trial. Setting aside the fact that we all know that John Terry is a tool...this trial shows a lot of differences between US and UK jurisprudence. No way does Terry go to trial in the USA for something like he was accused of.

The judge made a lot of assumptions about Terry's motives, including assuming that Terry has been through the wringer enough that he wouldn't react to being taunted. I just kept thinking would the judge think the same thing of Zinedine Zidane? Wouldn't he'd have thought ZZ would have not reacted the way he did in the WC?? Interesting indeed...

FIFA is going to investigate the bidding process for the 2018 & 2022 WC. Talk about the fox guarding te henhouse! But it is a good start.

Yikes, I have NO hope that Blatter has any intention of actually investigating what the entire world knows was a corrupt process. I mean, Qatar? Really?

I am thinking about going to the Boston game, but still not sure about it. Have fun in Toronto & hopefully same thing holds true for your husband at Fenway (wonder what football looks like from Green Monstah seats).

Chelsea's PSG game in NY is on tap for this weekend, but Romeu and Mata are both staying in Spain to train for the Olympics (methinks losing a friendly to Senegal has something to do with a more intense training camp now). Should be fun to see Torres and David Luiz live.

And all this talk about Torres and Liverpool at the same time reminds me of this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9p9AWfmoF1c). Not meant as a reminder for Liverpool fans that are still upset about the transfer...just love the ad.

Going to Chelsea v AC Milan on July 28th @ SunLife (Dolphin/Joe Robbie) Stadium. Over 50K tickets sold so far. Probably 60K could be sold by gameday.

NJL (we'll be behind the east goal....section 128, I believe....all in Striker red & yellow hoops....;)...)

Just saw some info online that ticket sales for the women's Olympic tournament are abyssmally bad. The USA v, France game that features two exciting teams who were played against each other in the WWC semi's have sold all of 200 tickets. That is no mistake, 200 freakin tickets. The GB women's team has sold 30k seats for their first game, but evidently the Brits support women's soccer about as much as the Brazillian's do.
