Some out there have said that the youth on FCD could be a bad thing this season. I tend to disagree with that given the type of veteran leadership this team has.

I don't know about you but watching Sunday's debuts of NYCFC and Orlando was a good time. Both teams have plenty of flaws...I mean plenty of them. But at the same time, both are rather entertaining to watch. Also, kudos to 62,000+ for coming out to watch this one in Orlando.

One person already did a simulation of the season...I think I'd take 3rd place for FCD in the West. Though I don't buy Chicago finishing second in the East. Also, it is funny that they added SC to Colorado's name. Grain of salt with this one guys, grain of salt.

I think a lot of the future for MLS goes hand-in-hand with the future of the USL as well. I still believe that a couple NASL teams will end up back in the USL before it is said and done too.

A couple comments from those involved in last week's talks. This time they really did come close to pushing the red panic button.

Warshaw's take on the CBA | Athletes Talk

Lets just say that former FCD midfielder Bobby Warshaw wasn't happy with the new CBA.

Alright, that appears to be it for now. What do you have to say today?
