Hey Senyore (no enyay on my keyboard) Goff,

I realize you have been keeping up a hectic pace on the board . . (and it's only February!) but how's the Allies vs Vichy French Sympathizer . . .er sorry .. . WW II rematch coming along?

""I don't get delantero's problem with MacFarlane wanting to make a buck. I think it is silly to question his commitment to the club.

Posted by: fedssocr | February 17, 2009 10:25 AM ""

I know this is the wrong thread, but I take offense.

I don't have a problem with making money. Our Federal Reserve keeps printing it at alarming rates, though.

I have a problem with an investor who sees a soccer club (My soccer club since 1996 that ended with a rainy, cold, overtime day in Foxborough!!) as a tool to further his business interests.

If PG County will advance the club, great. That remains to be seen.

I know for a fact though, that a stadium on the banks of the Anacostia or somewhere in one of the greatest cities in the world would ABSOLUTELY push this club to the next level.

That's why I have every right to question what I see as a shortsighted decision to move to the burbs.

Szetela becoming quite a fixture on notinthe18.

Surprised that Tracy is on AaB's roster...doubt he plays, but we'll see.

*sigh* Shortsighted this move to PG County is not...

Do you not think that KP has been looking at any possible stadium site within the district for the last 7-8 years?

Let's be honest here, you're just another Virginian who's whining that you'll have to travel another 15 minutes. The World does not revolve around the Commonwealth. I only wish I didn't have to drive through VA on my way to watch United from NC.

It would've been the crowing jewel in American soccer (or a World Cup!) -- but the cards simply and sadly didn't line up for DCU.

Hold "alt" then on the number pad type 1,6,4 then release "alt", it should work.

Hey, I finally learned something from this good-fer-nutin' blog. Thanks, man.

I'm with cranky ones. DC doesn't even have a developer yet, so no real plan for Poplar Point. MacFarlane should just send in some contractors and start building a stadium. Permits? Deeds? We don't need no stinkin' permits or deeds.....

When they're done, the city can pretend to be surprised, claiming they had no idea this was happening.....

"MFs DaMarcus Beasley/Maurice Edu and Glasgow Rangers face Forfar in Scottish Cup"

Isn't that a little optimistic?

No, I don't. And we haven't heard anything from the team about those sites.

Plus, his boss/es have only been around for 2 years. And they seem to have an idea of what they want.

Well at least we know Glasgow Rangers will play...

What next level, the Coca-Cola Championship?
Seriously though I don't think we're ever going to reach agreement on this issue. Let's not discuss it and remain friends. Agreed?

I've had it with these MF'in MFs not in the MF'in 18!

If Beasley/Maurice Edu can't get some minutes against FORFAR, it's time to get loan deal to the austrian 2nd division.
