          FIFA did announce punishments... England probably won't be allowed to bid until 2038 after this.

            With Qatar being brought up again and all the discussion of artificial surfaces for the women's world cup...
            Does anyone think the women have a leg to stand on?
            Do you think the women would be just as upset if the 2014 Women's World Cup was going to be in Qatar?
            Do you think they'd be complaining that the men would never play in that heat?

            I think the Women have a point that the men have never played on grass but at the same time alot of these women play for club teams that play on turf.

                  I'm amazed AJ even carried the story. They're a great source for ME news... unless that news is at all embarrassing to the Qatar ruling family.

                      Chivas USA on track to be sold, may sit out 2015 season.

                      That sound you hear is every other Western Conference team saying "oh please God no!" Why? Because that would mean Houston and SKC move west while the east gets two expansion teams. At that point Western Conference = Battle Royale ECW style while the Eastern Conference = DC and New England vs a bunch midgets and Toronto.

                        Crap - go one big league and play everyone home and home. If you want playoffs, take the top 8.

                          They are barely getting in the 34 plus Playoffs they're playing now. Adding in four games to that would make it worse, like trying to play in New England and Chicago in February worse.

                                I think the bigger problem is Wynalda. Gus would've been tolerable had he been paired with a decent color man.
