Bad luck turns around for FCD at the end of August | FCDallas.com

Three straight losses nearly sent FCD into a tailspin as the final months of the season approached. But a win does cure a lot of things. I will also say it happened on a busy weekend in the league so not many cared to notice either. I happen to like it when this team flies under the radar a bit.

NASL cries foul on USSF rules | Financial Times

This link may still be under a paywall but it is worth the discussion nonetheless. NASL was given some new guidelines to follow in order to be a D1 in the US, which they have apparently applied to be. USSF upped some minimums and now the NASL is crying all about it.
