    Are they just saying that now because they lost and it's an easy excuse to make? Like when a recruit flips to a different team and then a bunch of people just say that they didn't even need or really want him anyway? Seems odd that they potentially wouldn't prioritize the Open Cup after all the talk last year about trying to win their first trophy (Supporters' Shield didn't count according to them).

    If only there were 31 other teams for him to pick from. It's all part of a marketing deal, so who is to say if he's really rooting for the US's biggest soccer rival?

    Landon Donovan is now guilty of treason.

    It was the right call, but we’ve already seen so many calls that were questionable at best being made with VAR in MLS. I have no problem with reviews for offside (generally), or whether the ball crossed a line, and even handballs, but judgment call fouls like that I’m not a fan of reviewing in any sport.

    Video reviews for judgment calls are the worst. For all the whining, it’s amazing to think that the NFL and college football have the best video review system. EDIT: Obviously France didn't like it either. It's the only explanation for putting your hand in the air like that.

    I'm pretty happy with that being the first World Cup game I've gotten to see this year.

    We got rid of countdown clocks and shootouts. What else do they want!?

    Travel is nuts in the US compared to what the European leagues have to deal with. There are 358 miles between San Jose and the Galaxy's stadiums, which is thought of as a relatively close, in-state rivalry. The longest distance between Premier League teams this season was 354 miles.

    The real answer is that the Canucks don't have any good options. Stick in rick is the most generic, boring logo ever. Johnny Canuck is beyond overrated. Orca is kind of lame. Flying skate is my personal favorite, but that's probably because it's what they had when I was a kid, and I thought it was a planet and that seemed pretty cool. So I say the Canucks just keep throwing darts at the board and maybe one day something will stick because what they have isn't that great and nothing they've had in the past is either.

    They hate the Warriors because they're the best team. The best teams are the most hated. Enjoy it. The Durant thing, I don't think anybody can blame him, but it was frustrating as somebody who is not a fan of the Warriors, OKC, or the Cavs. After the Warriors vs. Cavaliers II, I was very excited about the prospect of a third series between the two. When Durant signed with Golden State, it suddenly seemed less interesting because we all knew they'd steamroll anybody that stood in their way and it removed another team (OKC) as a threat. I just laugh at the hyperbole of the narrative that the Warriors have killed the NBA.

    I saw this on twitter and reddit today. Thought it was relevant.

    The only way pro/rel happens is if MLS collapses completely, while there is still support for teams at the lower levels who pick up the pieces. So it’s not happening and I wish the conversation would die. All of the people begging for pro/rel probably aren’t fans of teams that are a threat to drop down from their leagues in Europe. So they get to enjoy the fun of seeing a team move up, but don’t care if they get slapped back down immediately. It’s fun to root for Liverpool (YNWA!), Man U, etc., but not so much to root for Shrubshrewbrook FC.

    I never have these weird interactions you people are talking about. Maybe I just do a better job of avoiding annoying internet people.

    Plus, it helps that basketball is the most bandwagon friendly sport. A lot of people don't follow a team as much as they do a player. I remember one of those facebook maps where it broke down all of the fans of NBA teams based on county going around, and generally, outside of a team's specific market, the favorites were the Lakers, Celtics, or Cavaliers. Then LeBron moves to Miami, and suddenly the Cavaliers support disappears and those areas become Heat territory. If you think the Warriors killed basketball, then maybe you just didn't like basketball all that much in the first place. And I fully expect that when the Grizzlies inevitably win the title next year, the same people bitching about the Warriors will then bitch about the lack of star power or some other bullcrap. Just the same as when people complained about teams full of ball hogs and how they wanted more team play and passing and defense, and then bitched when they got Spurs vs. Pistons.
