Welcome to the RSL Cup blog

I've been a fan of Real Salt Lake since it joined MLS and took to the field in 2005, and I've been a fan of MLS since it began in 1996. Lately however I've started to worry about the path MLS is taking and the poor decisions they are making that in my mind threaten the growth of soccer as a whole in the US. (see "Columbus conspiracy" section) Soccer in America will grow only when we have a vibrant and diverse minor league system, something that MLS seems to be smothering at the moment. (see "American soccer wars" section) Let's keep our eyes on the situation and hope for the best, a future where grass-roots soccer and the minor leagues can not only exist but flourish, as well as where the contributions and history of the league's early clubs are appreciated and preserved.

AS Roma's new stadium



 
Is it just me or are these new stadiums getting a little too fancy?
 
I don't know, it does seem like each new stadium tries to out-do the last. Sometimes I wonder if the game itself gets lost in the shuffle.
 
For years now Roma and Lazzio have shared the Estadio Olimpico in Rome, their matches against each other have been epic. I hope we don't lose that epic-ness now, but I am afraid we will.
