    Something like six and stripped of his captaincy of the USMNT

    Neymar just got four (suspended for the rest of COPA America) for verbal abuse. Dempsey's was worse.

    Do you think a no-name player who did the exact same thing would get something like three games?

    Neymar kicked a ball at a player and attempted a head butt, Dempsey's was worse but Neymar was being a cunt.

    Stripping him of his captaincy is ridiculous other than I don't like a 32 year old captain and not sure Dempsey should even be an automatic starter.

    3 games seems a little light. 5 or 6 IMO

    Arteta is available for a cool 15 mil if Barca wants another Arsenal captain.

    4 yellows in the first 18, this will make for a great match.

    Portland looks really damn good right now. Defense looks great right now and back to a possession type game that suits the team better (especially with guys like Valeri and Nagbe who can hold the ball). Going to be a fun couple of months in the west.

    The U.S. Soccer Federation suspended Clint Dempsey from U.S. Open Cup games for a minimum of 2 years and up to 6 matches for tearing up a referee's notebook during a Cup match last week. That's on top of the 3-game league ban he got from MLS.

    If Nemeth scores on his next shot on goal he ties the all time MLS mark for Goal Scoring efficiently.

    Wish Sporting was still in the east conference.. We'd be in 2nd place vs 4-6th depending on the week.

    More a comment on playoffs and seeding.
    We had an easier road to finals when we were in the east.

    Miazga has been a beast today, his stock is soaring. Sounds like Stuttgart and Swansea were scouting him today.

    Fox is so fucking awful.
    Close-ups to compliment their commentary narrative instead of the wide shot showing the action, piss poor timing of replays (again skipping the play on the field)

    So goddamn infuriating

    Watching the NYC/NYRB game last night and one camera (the left corner flag camera) was a half a second slower than the wide angle camera.
    They'd zoom to the corner flag when a kick was being taken, then switch to the wide angle and the ball was already in the keeper's hands or being headed clear and you have no idea how. And it happened every time they used that camera.
    It became comical.
