Diaby rumor is nonsense | Dallas Morning News

I prefaced the rumor the other day as pure silliness. Now we know for sure what the club thinks about it.

About those Facebook chats Dan Hunt | 3rd Degree

We poked a few holes at this yesterday during the chat on Twitter. Most of our writers actually asked some questions too but this is spot on about the chat itself. Too many canned responses that people see right through. It isn't like a message board where people can hide behind screen names either. Hunt and who ever is sitting with him during these chats needs to hit the reset button on this idea. From what started as a good way for fans to talk with Dan have turned into just bitch sessions.

You can thank Title IX for women's soccer | The Washington Post

While I'd like to think there are better reasons as to why the US women have been so good all of these years, this one may make the most sense.

Don't compare this team to the 1999 team | USA Today

I can't stress this enough when watching this group play. It is a totally different style and mentality out there but at least the goal is still the same. Maybe if Alex Morgan scores the game-winner on Sunday she can do her best Brandi Chastain impression.
