Any word on what the Rapids are going to do with Gomez? I don't want him back or anything, but that doesn't mean I'm not curious about what's going on with the guy.

And the first player selected in the 2008 MLS Draft, for DC United

INSERT NAME, from XXX,

Jim: "Good pick, talented player, but sure to be picked up with a fatter contract from USL, Bob"

Bob: "You betcha, can't say I could play for 14,000 a year when I could be playing for the CONCACAF Champions League for more money in Montreal or Vancouver."

That doesn't sound right. Perhaps SI devoters didn't share their votes enough. I don't no much about Ives.

Again. It's purely self-serving for USSF to list their own blogs (in reality press releases) among the candidates. 14% of the voters are easily fooled.

besides, we all know the SI is the best.

One of the reasons Ives' blog "won" is that he suddenly jumped on the Setanta Sports videos that used to appear here regularly.

Goff knows that he does not need artificial stimulants to supply his faithful with jolts of footie goodness, whereas Ives needs whatever help he can get. (Ives does a great job and covers a lot of ground, but is still #2....)

Looks like DC United is in a good position for the draft. I'm cautiously optimistic. With DC, it seems pretty obvious who worked out and who didn't, and I think Tom Soehn has done well to protect his best players. Let's just hope we don't pick up more duds, although really, the MLS draft isn't like the NBA or NFL drafts. The level of player isn't that great, am I right?

The drafts have seen players like Wynne, Edu, Kljestan, Ianni, Parkhurst, Dempsey, Ryan Nelsen!!

So, while overall the draft may not be chock full of blue chip players, it does have plenty of quality.

United just needs to step up and pay the kids.

With the trimming of rosters from 28 to 24, I'd like to see developmental spots done away with entirely, and senior minimum's bumped to $40k, which would keep draft picks and role players from jumping to USL.
