Video: Morales' spectacular goals

Javier Morales provided reigning champion Real Salt Lake with the first and third goals in a 3-0 victory at San Jose -- a thunderous blast from 30 yards and an exquisite free kick from 18:

Beautiful stuff by Morales. But it makes me sad to see Amway and Herbalife continuing to be jersey sponsors. Too bad MLS can't be more selective than to have a couple pyramid schemes/MLM scams promote themselves.

On the bright side, I was right about how awful SJE is.

I don't know what goal is best, but I'll go with the 1st.

Morales is just a good player. He was injured in the Cup Final, if I remember. RSL definitely loses something without him.

You could say the same for the English leagues (AIG, XL and others).

Delantero, I assume you are a DCU fan, which makes your comment rather ironic considering the VW's history of being founded by Hitler, its roll in supporting the Nazi's and its use of slave labor.

Sorry, my comment was directed at dimesmakesdollars, not delantero.

How ironic.

I was talking about the legitimacy of the companies as real businesses. The 2 I referenced are out an out scams that actively hurt the majority of people who get involved with them - maybe AIG could fit that category, too, if you like. Businesses that are simply losing money or that have a history of being involved in heinous acts might not be suitable sponsors either (Nike anyone?), but I wasn't arguing that they are. It would be great if every team could be Barcelona or Aston Villa where this is concerned, but that won't happen.

So, technically, those companies are not pyramid schemes because someone at a lower level could, again technically, make more and faster money than his recruiter. I recall this being a court decision. But practically, they're pyramids. As long as MLS is getting sponsors who are not the Mafia or a casino (maybe that's redundant), they're OK. After all, the top guy is a Don.

Beautiful stuff from morales! I hope we can find a midfielder like that for DC this summer...... because we certainly need it!

To the posters using the terms 'pyramid' to describe Amway & Herbalife: seriously guys, are you kidding me? Two long established companies that conform to higher levels of ethics than perhaps beer and tobacco sponsors you'd evidently rather see on jerseys for our children to see their role models wearing. You can clearly use google to trawl opinion; try it for facts next time before you utter such garbage.

getoverit is looking for key people in the DC area to pursue exciting opportunities in direct marketing.

I-270Exit1: Love your comment!

It wouldn't be me looking - two of my relatives are in direct sales though (not the ones mentioned, but similar DSA-approved one) and have helped a lot of people legally and ethically. I get tired of lazy opinion labelling them otherwise so hopefully setting the record straight. Rant over...

Personally, I like Bolton's jersey sponsor. Bookmakers are far more reputable.
