Preseason camps begin to open up today around MLS with FC Dallas starting up tomorrow morning.

And so it begins again, training will be back in session tomorrow.
One of the best bits of news that came out yesterday was centered around Fernando Clavijo. After a year of battling cancer he is in remission. That is such wonderful news.

Really have to tip the hat to our friends over at SaH for their coverage during the whole Jordan Morris situation. They've been out in front of a lot of the news with him and here is a good look at what they think they'll get out of him this season.
The hype train has been going for a while now with Morris but can he live up to it in his rookie season? Given the talent surrounding him, I think he has a good shot to do fairly well.
One thing I love to stress when it comes to the whole MLS vs Europe debate is that everyone has a different situation. You can't blame a guy for doing one thing over the other when you don't know their situation personally.
Sad face for Bill Hamid and DCU.
I'm sure he actually is, in fact I bet MLS is his guilty pleasure.
This is interesting news out of Atlanta. The new venue that will house Atlanta United SC will be delayed by three months and will not be opening until June of next year. So it sounds like either a temporary venue is going to be in place or they'll hit the road for a long, long time.
New England's Chris Tierney is arguably one of the better fullbacks in MLS these days. How he got there has been an interesting road to watch.

That is...uh...rather interesting? That may be putting it too nice. We complain about a lot of logos in MLS (when we probably shouldn't) but man, this one is bad.
