The ATX Pro Challenge is nearly here for us all as FC Dallas heads down to Austin today to get set to take on the Columbus Crew SC tomorrow evening. We'll have plenty on that game but first here is a look at your morning headlines.

Have your vote on what the field should look like |

I still find this vote rather amusing that FCD would throw out these options for next Friday's friendly with DCU. I still think they need to find a field design that spells out DTID.

FCD shuns stars for youth | The Guardian

A nice look at the club in how they build around youth and key veterans instead of stars. I may also have a name drop in that piece as well. Oh boy.

EPL TV rights go for billions |

I know this is a day late but I felt like touching on the fact that the bottom teams in the EPL will earn more than any MLS team will during the eight-year contract that MLS just started. Insane.

Alright that is all that I have for now, what do you folks have going on today?
