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

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

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

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.

Where's the closest MLS team to where you live?


Via Reddit. I was hoping somebody would work up this map for MLS teams after the MLB version dropped on Opening Day. There are some pretty large gaps in the geography, but there's also more to be gleaned here. (e.g. the Revs are the team of the Canadian maritimes! And Beckham is totally stepping on DC's toes down in Miami!) What catches your eye?
