MLS news and views

Walsh: Those Who Can't Play or Coach
Sigi Schmid and Bob Bradley. Besides Bruce, these are the two best coaches ever to walk an MLS sideline. Hmm, I think I have to agree with this statement. Come to think of it, Bruce has done a very good job with the national team over the past, what, seven or eight years. (I can’t remember how long it was after France ‘98 that he took the coaching job.) Let’s hope that he can keep the team heading in the right direction.
All but a handful of soccer writers are morons. They are either soccer brain dead or are regurgitating crap that they have heard others say. Does that include me?
Soccer is at a time now much like surfing was in the 1950s and 1960s. Twenty years from now people will look back and admire MLS players that play the game for love and not a lot of money. I’ve always thought that there is something more enjoyable about watching those who play for love of the game. However, it is most likely is true that at least the majority of professional players worldwide, including those making bundles of money, are in the game because of their love of it. Yes, they may be making some good money, but there certainly is an element of love of the game that got them that far. It is also true that those making more money typically are making the money because they, simply put, are very good at what they do, which makes for an enjoyable experience for the spectator.
