My Response to Keith Olbermann

Pieces of advice about how to fix soccer from reporters that are dyed-in-the-wool soccer bashers are usually best disregarded. I still remember Tony Kornheiser’s suggestion years ago that DC United should always start Freddy Adu, for example. But, Keith Olbermann…

USL published a piece on PDL’s Western Conference teams this week. The piece just has short blurbs on each team, which is understandable. What you all want to know is what is going on with the newly formed Mountain Division…
