Pace is a very good point here.

The bad part of these articles is that they unleash hordes of raging morons upon the comment section.
Commented on The NFL doesn't care about you, ladies on Jul 24 2014, 10:25p
On average, recruiting information for incoming players is useful.
Commented on #Disrespekt: Delving into the ESPN's FPI Metric on Jul 18 2014, 8:29p
Eh. It was a close enough game that if you had Stanford significantly ahead to start with, I can see how that would happen.

SOS, if done properly, is not subjective at all.

Those dozen were just in the top 30.

If it was just MSU and there was something resembling a good reason for it, fine. Outliers happen.

If they need more motivation than "our QB got killed repeatedly last year"

They were at least entertaining.
Commented on Blackpool cancel preseason tour because they don't have enough players on Jul 16 2014, 6:52p
There's a difference between "a couple outliers" and "half the rankings look like a monkey pulling names from a hat".

With dozens of venues large enough now, why add another for 8 WCQ games and a handful of friendlies every four years?

The first qualifying course aired a few weeks ago (where she was the first woman to make it past the Warped Wall).

I could see them trying to make it regional for the group stage

They actually try to go every third now.
Commented on What will the next American World Cup look like? on Jul 15 2014, 9:39p
They wouldn't do back-to-back in Europe, though.

Trouble for me has been that I haven't been in a locale with an MLS team.

Fox Soccer Plus still carries a little (mostly replays), though at this point they're more rugby and Aussie Rules than soccer.

/insert stoppage time rant again
Commented on WE HATE WAFFLES on Jul 1 2014, 6:38p
Belgium used more than a minute on that substitution alone.

That has to be a yellow card.
Commented on WE HATE WAFFLES on Jul 1 2014, 6:23p
Well, yeah, but one team doing that is better than both teams doing that.
Commented on WE HATE WAFFLES on Jul 1 2014, 6:22p
Weird idea I've seen kicked around: do the shootout before extra time.

Club teams? No idea.
Commented on WE HATE WAFFLES on Jul 1 2014, 6:19p
HOLY SHIT THIS AIN'T OVER
Commented on WE HATE WAFFLES on Jul 1 2014, 6:17p
One extra sub wouldn't do a whole lot.
Commented on WE HATE WAFFLES on Jul 1 2014, 6:14p
Fuck.
Commented on WE HATE WAFFLES on Jul 1 2014, 6:12p
15 freaking saves.
Commented on WE HATE WAFFLES on Jul 1 2014, 6:11p
They tried golden goal for a while.
Commented on WE HATE WAFFLES on Jul 1 2014, 6:06p
Besler.

No, it turns out he was extremely right.

Nope.
Commented on WE HATE WAFFLES on Jul 1 2014, 5:57p
And by "were not" you mean "not within two fucking yards of being offside".
Commented on WE HATE WAFFLES on Jul 1 2014, 5:55p
End-of-full-time intermission starting now.
Commented on WE HATE WAFFLES on Jul 1 2014, 5:52p
Another minute or so.

This is flat fucking terrifying.
Commented on WE HATE WAFFLES on Jul 1 2014, 5:49p
Never gonna get a yellow out of that if it's on an attacking set piece.
Commented on WE HATE WAFFLES on Jul 1 2014, 5:45p - 1 reply
Yeah, was gonna say, that looked pretty WTF-ish.
Commented on WE HATE WAFFLES on Jul 1 2014, 5:43p
He may be top 5.

No, he got hurt 20 minutes into the Ghana game.

I think that's fair regarding the top level teams.
Commented on GO GO USA on Jul 1 2014, 5:21p
We have a midfield?

Panic clearing is what our defenders do best.
Commented on GO GO USA on Jul 1 2014, 5:18p
Scratch "almost".
Commented on GO GO USA on Jul 1 2014, 5:06p
Us getting shutouts (other than in CONCACAF) is also, unfortunately, rare.

Spanish League might be stronger at the top but doesn't have near as much depth.

Fabian Johnson pulled a hamstring.
Commented on GO GO USA on Jul 1 2014, 4:53p
When Howard's on, he's arguably top 5 in the world.
Commented on GO GO USA on Jul 1 2014, 4:51p
Offensively, he provides even more than Johnson did.

Our best chances have been with him out there, but we've had decent stretches of play without him.
Commented on GO GO USA on Jul 1 2014, 4:45p
Easier to be consistent with more refs, I'd think
Commented on GO GO USA on Jul 1 2014, 4:41p
That would be too logical.
Commented on GO GO USA on Jul 1 2014, 4:38p
That was the plan with Johnson, I think.
Commented on GO GO USA on Jul 1 2014, 4:36p
Okay, now that I'm breathing again:

If two players are going for a header, there will be a foul called.
Commented on GO GO USA on Jul 1 2014, 4:17p
Likewise.
Commented on GO GO USA on Jul 1 2014, 4:13p - 1 reply
Cameron, why did you cut in front of that and keep Howard from catching it?
Commented on GO GO USA on Jul 1 2014, 4:12p - 2 replies
Good question.

Hey, something vaguely resembling a run forward.

Not so much under Klinsmann.
