Here are a few doozies........
This guy thinks the Ryder Cup is exciting but soccer will never make it.
This is an unbiased article but it contains some truly assinine comments from the jackal known as Glen Beck.
Not necessarily negative, but a buzz kill nonetheless.
This guy should probably stick to the NBA. He's right about Kobe though.
I still don't understand why people who know nothing about soccer are suddenly compelled to wrtite articles and columns spewing uneducated biased garbage with no real fact or substantial information other than tired, old generalizations based on nothing more than a passing glance. What's even more puzzling is the continued insistence by major media outlets to actually publish the same drivel over and over again. A recent Sun Times article echoed the same trash from a writer who apparently doesn't know much about the game. Why doesn't the Sun Times have Len Ziehm write an article about how boring baseball is or how unwatchable televised golf is? Maybe the Tribune can have Jack McCarthy write a piece about flopping and phantom foul calls in the NBA and how it's ruining the game?
Why? Because those articles would be viewed as biased nonsense yet they continue to publish anti soccer trash.
I know for a fact that several of you have contacted the Sun Times and the Tribune regarding minimal soccer coverage and in most cases a complete absence of coverage. Both entities claim that they don't receive any requests from fans for soccer coverage. If you have contacted either outlet via email or written letter let me know about it. I will post it here or gather the correspondence and forward it to the editor's of both papers. If any of the articles mentioned here upset you, the time is ripe to do something about it and provide a response to the dinosaurs in the local and national media who continue to ignore reality.
Please send any copies of correspondence or emails to the press to firstname.lastname@example.org. They'll have to answer sooner or later.
Anybody excited for the big BP Cup battle this weekend?
