Huge news coming out of MLS HQ today, just days before the kick off of the 2012 season.

As we all know, in the past, MLS has not had the best reputation with regards to refereeing. In fact, some would call it downright abysmal. I'm one of those people. More so than anything else in the sport, I hate losing due to a shitty referee call.

If your child plays competitive/travel soccer, you know it can be stressful come tryout time for you AND them. I often think the parents stress over it more than the kids do. But as a league administrator, it's even worse for different reasons.

Seattle Sounders Rated 6th Among MLS Academies

One of the things to do when reviewing the release of the USSDA/USSF Academy ratings is figure out how the MLS teams rate compared to each other. The Philadelphia Union are hard to rate as their structure is unique at the Academy level. One of the ratings (Player Development) seems to favor teams on the East as they are more likely to get picked for national team games due to a proximity bias and it also rewards teams that sign players that they don't intend to play.

I Hate Tryouts

I hate tryouts. I've always hated tryouts. Kids are stressed. Parents are stressed. Coaches are stressed. Some of it reasonable, some of it not. In some areas with large programs, it amazes me the intrigue and drama that goes on with the 'B' teams and the accusations (sometimes valid, sometimes not) of clubs considering things other than skill in their evaluations.

In England it's the vote of confidence. In Indonesia it's less democratic but just as fatal for coaches. Lose two or three games in quick succession and you can be sure it won't be long before the football club management, abhorring the whole notion of defeat, will be sure to start mumbling about how they will soon evaluate the coach's performance.

USA 2-2 Haiti: Smiles All Around in Turf Debacle

Major League Soccer Talk at related • 9 views

With a desperate Haitian team coming to Foxborough to face a USA "D" team any result was on the table. But sadly when a match of this magnitude is played on artificial turf, it is difficult to make evaluations about the play and specific players with much certainty. While fans or MLS or USL often defend turf, those games are played at a slower pace which is less affected by the odd bounces of turf and are quite frankly more often than not, less important than this game was to the Haitians.
