1998 World Cup fiasco


Yeah... At the time, I was a super-casual fan so I had no idea. It's really just bananas.

I keep thinking we'll hear more about the 2017 fiasco, but maybe it's just not as interesting (what you see is what it was).

Well, hopefully nobody was having an affair with a teammate's wife! It doesn't seem like there were the same self-centered people - the most we heard about was infighting between the German-Americans and the others, right? So I expect there's less story there - but also that, in twenty years, we'll get a more complete picture of what happened.

Some random thoughts...

I watched a bit of Chelsea v Newcastle. Yedlin looked mostly terrible. Willian just destroyed him.

I was the opposite of busy on Friday afternoon, so I watched the MLS SuperDraft. You know, the draft that's so important that Philly traded all of their draft picks to FC Cincinnati for $150k.

FCC's first pick of Frankie Amaya is interesting. The MLS folks were saying his real value is as an asset. He doesn't count against the cap (arcane rules), he already has interest from Liga MX, and he'll be playing for the US in the U-20 world cup. The thought is that they could flip him in 1-2 years. LAFC offered FCC a swap of #1 for #5 and $200k; FCC countered with a ridiculous $500k. So they really value the player (one way or the other).

It's just funny hearing in the first round "he's destined for their USL affiliate."

I wonder if the SuperDraft will be around 10 years from now.
