1)  DCU Owner Erick Thohir's name was mentioned in the recently leaked Panama Papers.

 

My thoughts?  Hahahahahahaha.  Good.

 

 

2)  WaPoWhy isn’t Luciano Acosta starting for D.C. United? Ben Olsen explains.

 

My thoughts?  Just a bunch of rubbish.  Confidence in Olsen, the front office, ownership is at an all-time low.  They're winless in their last 9 matches (going back to last season) and the natives are getting restless. 

 

Also, from what I've read, ownership/F.O. has actually banned one of the supports groups (The District Ultra's) for the year. 

 

That certainly isn't a way to win over fans who continue to support this crap.  Ownership and the FO just doesn't get it.  Desperately need the new stadium built so Thohir and Levien can flip the club for a nice little profit and then GTFO.

I mean, technically Miami isn't final yet, so they still have to officially get to 24...

With M&T going back to grass, has that spurred talk of trying to get an MLS team to play there? Or are the Ravens wary of having the grass field over-used? There would be about a 3 month overlap of seasons (if you include NFL preseason) and more if you include MLS postseason. I would think the Ravens might want to consider it, but I would also guess they want to see how the field holds up with just football first.

MLS seems to have mostly gone away from NFL-sized stadiums, so I doubt playing there long term would be considered a viable option.

WaPo:  MLS suspends D.C. United Coach Ben Olsen for clearing stray ball off field during match

 

Looks like 'ol Don Garber is trying his best to emulate Roger Goodell.  Here's what he was suspended for.

There should be no comparison made to Goodell. This bush league bullshit didn't even draw a flag, much less a suspension.

Is Zlatan really going to come to MLS when he can still play in better leagues?

No longer just a retirement home, continue to attract players at younger ages.  Lots of guys in 20s that aren't getting a ton of run in the top EURO leagues now considering MLS.
