    According to the Athletic, the MLS combine is no longer, along with the Superdraft, with all its hoopla. Instead, they will do a draft by telephone conference.

    This shows the MLS shift towards academies more than anything else. There's still some value from the generation addidas kids and there's always a couple of draft picks that stand out but it's no longer a big deal.

    Rollins reporting major Montreal news outlets showed up to discuss the Henry hiring & the Impact turned them away....because they don't normally cover the Impact.

    So....Joey gets Henry for the hype.

    In a town with the most single sport obsessive media in North America, the non Impact following media shows up to feed on that hype which would provide front page news in Montreal.

    And the Impact don't feed that hype out of a false sense of "where were you" ness


    All that balderdash about a president with ties to the Habs moving the Impact forward just got laid bare. Joey isn't back - he never left.

    And to all the people who often write ML$E is cheap, money making ownership & we need a rich singular owner who cares passionately for the team, I give you "Crazy" Joey Saputo.

    LOL.

    The "MLSE is cheap" comes from the Ballard and the Teachers Pension Fund days, it's not at all accurate anymore.

    That's just mindbogglingly stupid. That can't possibly be the reason, can it? I mean, if you need media for free advertising, does joey really think they're going to cover him now? Maybe he's going of the business idea of scarcity of supply to step up demand, but I think that doesn't work in this case. I'm just shaking my head here...

    In lieu of their move to Soldier Field next year, the Chicago Fire announce today a new name (sort of) and a new badge.




    http://news.sportslogos.net/2019/11/...pointing-logo/

    Kinda underwhelming, IMO.
    TORONTO FC, 2017 MLS CHAMPIONS!!! (Still the greatest in league history!)

    Very underwhelming IMO, though the original was too...
    None of these two looks like one for a football team, lol.

    Something like this would have been better:



    They can have it for $900, and I'm also giving 30% from this to the person who will convince their front office to use my design (must be a dude from this forum).

    F - Jordan Hamilton (11/21/19 - option declined)
    We can have him back if we want.
    I don't think he's worst than Mullins... of course none brings much to a team...

    Mullens is better than hamilton. I would have let mullens go and tried bwp or nemeth but mullens is back. Hopefully perruzza gets a shot next year.

    No thanks. He couldn't cut it here before and he probably won't if came back, There isn't anything he did in Columbus that could prove otherwise. CanPL is where he should go - to at least develop his finishing and then take a crack at MLS again in a couple years.

    I don't mind it except...why a crown? What does that have to do with fire? I don't get it.

    So apparently the gold crown happens to be a symbol of one of the more notorious Latin street gangs in Chicago. Kids told not to wear one ever - that sort of thing.

    18 months of research and....they tick off a good chunk of their citizenry.

    And perhaps the dumbest thing about it is that the original crest was already one of the best in the league. I mean, it's not like it was Columbus, which absolutely needed a rebrand.

    Classic case of 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it,' and now they've royally fucked it up.

    Hopefully they just scrap the whole idea and stick with the original.

    His finishing has never been a problem. Ever.

    Good finishers get minutes.

    More importantly - his issue has been his workrate, specifically in training. Unlike Fraser & Shaffleberg, Hamilton didn't put in the effort to be on the same page.
