Mexico Mania

Soccer United Marketing, the arm of MLS that holds the rights to Mexican national team friendlies played in the United States, has announced two more matches for El Tri this fall:

Sept. 12 vs. Brazil at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. (three days after Mexico plays the Americans at Azteca) and Oct. 17 vs. China at the Los Angeles Coliseum.

So that's a second game for Mexico against the Brazilians this year after beating them at Copa America.

Would Brazil want to play the US while they are here ?

I don't know, but we should probably ask for the Mexican team's permission, since this is their home turf and all.

What Mexican organization holds the rights the US national team friendlies held in Mexico - and why aren't they doing their job??

Will the Mexican fans get tired of their national team never playing in Mexico again?

Who else can we get to play "almost-home" games in our coutry? This sounds like a money-making trip for both, more than anything else. I would love to know what the financial arrangements surrounding that deal are. Even though this is during an international window, will this be real players or 100% also-rans?

Yeah, whooopeeee, more fundraisers!

SUM can eat me.

Why play Brazil at home when we can play real teams like Sweden, Catalonia, and Switzerland abroad?

Goff or his intellectual equvilent- can you tell me if the money SUM makes from these games goes into MLS coffers creating more financial stablity for the league?

Maybe I'll go to the game, dress as a Mexicant throw some flares and urine bags and get Mexico banned from playing friendlies in the US.
