Sometimes I think it's really weird that there IS a FIFA. I guess, as an American, I'm used to the biggest professional leagues being the de facto "leader" of their sports, but not the final authority on the sport. That FIFA kind of "owns" soccer and no one can say boo to them strikes me sometimes as just the most surreal thing. That it doesn't seem surreal and weird constantly is a credit to the massive mind-control powers FIFA has. Good job, douches!
I guess that's the big difference. Major team sports in the US are controlled by the leagues. In Europe you have FAs and Leagues and no country is big enough to give FIFA a middle finger by themselves.
Naw, the big difference is simply the World Cup. No other organized sport has anything like it which gives FIFA the leverage and cash they need to threaten. What's FIBA going to do, threaten to exclude the USA from the World Championships? Zero ##### would be given.
Jozy Altidore has scored against Chelsea.
How does Sunderland score three goals against Chelsea?
The only reason they didn't win was because Eden Hazard was playing on another level from everyone else on the pitch.
What a great day for the Premier League. I only saw the entirety of Utd/Everton, but it was a terrific game. Really, though, you almost couldn't miss no matter which game you watched.
Suarez is insane. I don't know that I've ever seen an athlete quite like him.
The more likely scenario is that this past summer repeats itself if Liverpool don't make the CL, and possibly even if they do.
Here's a question. You're starting a team from scratch - even considering the baggage he brings, who do you take over Suarez? I guess you should still take Messi over him, even with some of the injury concerns. I suppose people like Bale, Ronaldo, and Aguero should be in the conversation, but Suarez is one of the most technically gifted players I've ever seen.
I've said it before - If this is for one season, than Yaya Toure, he's the most physically dominating player in the World right now, and he can beat you at both sides of the pitch, and in the middle.
I'm still not entirely sure where I stand with Rodgers, but I think quite a bit would have to go wrong over the rest of the season for FSG to sack hiim.
I didn't get to catch the Swansea-Newcastle game - was the game as one-sided as the final score says? I know Newcastle had been on a good run of late, so I wondering what had happened there.
I owe a beer to anyone who can listen to this entire podcast
Sepp Blatter even looks like a small rodent. He must be what, barely 5' tall?
