  1. I for one would be sad if the Cosmos folded.
    They represented a very important era in American soccer. An alcohol fueled, doing rails of cocaine off glass tables era while existing in an unsustainable bubble era. But an important era nonetheless.

  2. The RSL article makes me so angry. Here is a team that is ACTUALLY playing it’s young players. Meanwhile we have nothing…absolutely NOTHING…to play for, and still our kids sit.

    • While I agree we are playing the kids. The only kids that probably should be playing that aren’t are Jones and Najem. The D is young and the O has no young options.
