Continuing is good. This Cohen fellow could become very popular in soccer circles.

After Cohen settles the Labor Issues - can he settle the DC vs DC United Stadium issues?

Just noticed the Czech game is at 8pm (Tues. 5/25), not sure when that was announced.

Anyone know where in Washington these negotiations are happening? We should do the popular DC activity of holding a protest outside the venue. All I want is an agreement, not so worried about who 'wins' or 'loses' on the details.
No agreement = fans are losers.

Mr. Mia Hamm. Perfect.

It's hard to see how we can make a proper Washington protest out of this. We would need somehow to proclaim our entitlement to other folks' money. Don't see how that fits this scenario.

Although if we took up a collection and paid some of those professional knuckleheads to bang on plastic buckets and blow whistles outside the meeting, we could probably move the negotiations along one way or another just out of sheer annoyance.

If we're going to convert the Eurosnobs, we'd need to be more European - how about the Lucozade Party?

I second that idea. Those idiots are marching outside my building. If the folks at the negotiating table are anything like me, this whole thing would be settled in two hours, tops.
