TED Talk from D.C. United alum John Wilson

Via the MLS Players Union, former D.C. United (and current Charleston Battery) defender John Wilson on The Joy of Sport.

Welp we taught FCD how to play a man down apparently

1

FCD goes a man down due to a red card in the 10' and yet only gives up 1 goal to the metros to go down 1-0. Also Diaz didn't even make the bench for the game....I really should've gone with Pedro Morales than him on my fantasy team this week and I paid for it....c'est la vie.

DC-Fulham in in July?

+

Via BR&U commenter VercengetorixII, this RT:

SVP of Sales Chad Johnson tells STMs that scoreboard unveiling will take place on July 26th when @FulhamFC hosts @dcunited at @EverBankField

— Tad Dickman (@Tdickman89) April 24, 2014 Tad is a PR coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars, and seeing DC on the road for a summer friendly is...interesting (the last summer friendly where DC went on the road that comes to mind is their game vs. Real Madrid in a pre-MLS Sounders Seattle), and save for Eddie Johnson's time at Fulham which predates Fulham's current owner Shahid Khan, there is no easily apparent link between DC United, Fulham or the Jags that I can quickly find, aside from the 'relegate them both!' jokes one could make. So what are your thoughts on this tidbit?

More signs of what we missed by passing on Joya

Welp Joya showing more of what we missed in the USMNT scrimmage victory against Tijuana. He grabbed a brace. Remind me again why we passed on him?

Professional Referee Organization admits error in Eddie Johnson DOGSO call

1

Steve Goff of the Washington Post had quotes about this over the weekend, but the Professional Referee Organization now has its Play of the Week Article up; in it, PRO training and development manager Paul Rejer goes through the reasons why the play was a clear denial of a goal scoring opportunity. However, there is no indication of whether or not there will be any corrective action taken.

Ben Olsen...Unmarked

3

Ben Olsen all mic'd up during the DC-NY game. On a side note, to see the US Open Cup package and now this (presumably) recurring series, a word of praise to Lee Burrows, the video producer of this material, on the improved quality of these videos.

MLS Disciplinary Committee needs to be disciplined

1

I personally don't believe in fining/suspension for "diving", but if you're going to do it, you have to be consistent. This dive by Gonzalez is one of if not the worst in MLS history. THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF THE LEAGUE! Shameful, MLS.
