I can't really blame you. The Wizards are your primary point of reference, and even at their best, the most entertaining games they're involved in are when they're trying to disrupt an attack-oriented team. Toss in the awful atmosphere of Arrowhead (quite possibly the worst in the league, especially when they play those idiotic sound effects over the PA), and it's unpleasant (at best) all the way around. The Wiz front office is utterly pathetic, and definitely deserve a lot of the blame for KC's current situation.

The game against DC today was excruciatingly painful in all areas (United deserves some of the blame for showing up and being only "vaguely interested in playing soccer today," as one fan put it), and it's times like these when I think it might not be such a bad thing to have the Wizards move to San Antonio and get a clean slate.

KC won the MLS championship a few years ago.

I'm mostly just talking about how they aren't a good representative of the league, especially when they're at home. They're a defensive, boring team the vast majority of the time, and while that can lead to success on the pitch sometimes, it's not really doing much for them off it.

What the **** is MLS? I thought it was a debilitating disease or something.

I remember soccer. They had those things when I was a kid....giant ass inflatable boxing gloves. Those were sure fun....had no idea there was a professional league for that silliness.

They're commenting on what an inferior game it was on HDNet coverage of the Chicago/Columbus game.

Justin Mapp with a heel feint sicker than Alan Iverson crossing over Jordan!!!

No goal, but that was just sick.

Huh. Wish I had HDNet. That's the one game this week I don't have access to.

On the bright side, the Quakes-RSL game is using the SJ feed on Direct Kick, so I get to hear Ray Hudson and watch Chingy, DeRo, O'Rourke, and crew smack around the NKOTB.

AAAAARGH. Fifth minute, great long ball forward to Cerritos, beats Countess but it's off the post, then DeRo follows it up and Countess makes a superb stop.

Really nice looking crowd in SLC, though.

The Quakes were world class in the first half. Absolutely world class, beyond a shadow of a doubt. The skill that's been displayed on the attack is really just indescribable.

HOW THE **** ARE THEY DOWN 2-1?!

:banghead:

With a little central defense, the Quakes would be up there with FCD and the Revs as the top teams in the league.

I love soccer, but cannot watch the MLS, it was fun at first... back in the 90's (first season-MLS).

Leagues I cannot watch:
MLS
Mexico
France
Any Central American Country (Guatemala, San Salvador, etc)

Leagues I enjoy:
Argentina - all divisions - I used to play in the lower ones as a kid
England - Premier
Italy- Serie A
Spain - Primera
Brazil

That is why I have every Fox Sports channel. Growing up in a third world country (Argentina) made me a fanatic of Soccer...

(Its not a 3rd world country but that is another debate...)

Soccer in KC sucks, but I do support the Wiz every now and then... (more than the Royals)...

it was fun at first... back in the 90'sThere's really no comparison between the shitty league of 1996 and the rapidly progressing league of 2005.

RSL packed the back for most of the second half, but justice was halfway served. Several more great Countess stops and bad luck for San Jose, but Mullan sent in a gorgeous ball from the right and Moreno tagged it home convincingly for a 2-2 finish. Still deserved to take full points from it, though.

Hah. Watching the Metros-Rapids replay on MSG, and it's ****ing snowing at Invesco.

My primary point of reference, in the Metro area, would be the Kansas City Comets. My parents had season tickets and the Leiwickie Bros. put on a show back in the late 80's. Lasers, fireworks, Toto blaring over the loudspeakers... not to mention Gino Schiraldi, Enzo Dipede (sp), and later Tatu. When St. Louis came into Kemper, it rocked. I remember 15, 16 thousand showing up back then.

That's my point of reference. I'm wondering the true motive of the post?

Get the Wizards there own soccer stadium over in Kansas somewhere, then they might be worth going to. Arrowhead is awesome for football, and it would be good if the World Cup came here but not for MLS. Also get rid of soccer from Arrowhead, we can put FieldTurf in.

Get the Wizards there own soccer stadium over in Kansas somewhere, then they might be worth going to.Pretty much.
