U.S. Soccer

Jurgen Klinsmann put the cherry on his grift of U.S. Soccer Federation with an additional $3.5M settlement from the organization. Woof.


  1. Congrats, Steven!!!

  2. el Pachyderm says:

    Nani had old legs three years ago. What is Orlando thinking….black eye on the league, you ask me.
    dum dum.

  3. Congrats on the new baby. Get some sleep if you can, it’ll be a fun ride.

  4. Congrats Steven…invest in Pepto Bismol now and get ahead of the game.

  5. Good luck on the family addition, Steve.

  6. Congrats on getting a cool baby rather than the kind that sits around and cries and poops all day!
    Depressing to hear Houston is playing tonight.

  7. Normally Andy I would agree about Houston, but not with this year’s system makeover. all the extra practice they can get seems like a good thing.

  8. It’s tough to read too much into that MLSSoccer.com article considering the author got the Union’s former formation wrong. After 5 years, that might be a detail worth getting right.
