    - Looks like they changed the rotation for inter-conference matchups. This will be two straight years Vancouver visits Chicago and Chicago visits San Jose.

    - Also looks like the Fire get to reprise their role as MLS' Official Housewarming Bitch (at San Jose). In addition, they get to be the Galaxy's Ring Night Bitch again. Yeah, I think the Fire will suck this year.

    Not enough poll options so state your team.

    NYCFC babby, we taking MLS by storm

    Still hope the 3rd DP is someone good, but Kreis is quietly acquiring some solid MLS talent anyways. Mullins gon ball out.

    Yeah, the Fire's DPs are Allsvenskan players from Ghana who most fans have never heard of. Compare that to the rest of the league.

    Sigh, #hauptmanout

    Jesse Marsch is New York's new head coach.

    I know Curtis and Marsch played together in Chicago but this move doesn't make sense.

    New York just became a thug team.

    Sacha linked to NYRB - he played with the aforementioned pair of new bosses.

    MLS Schedule is out

    Decision Day is a great idea.

    For some reason MLS has put the Fire on National TV 13 times. I was right that Chicago would have a bunch of Friday Night games. Thankfully, all but one of them are on the road.

    Don't the Red Bulls still have Altidore's rights from when he transferred to Villareal? Or is the MLS just going to play Calvinball again?

    I'm a bit fuzzy on MLS player acquisition rules, but if New York spent the money received from the Altidore sale, they lose his rights. Chicago spent the money received from the Marco Pappa transfer, that's why Chicago didn't have the rights to him when he came back to MLS.

    Well MLS says "fuck the rules" and Galaxy gets another star.

    The only thing I'm looking forward to this year is the new Earthquakes Stadium. Has some pretty cool features including a bar behind the goal one entire side of the stadium. I believe they're calling it the biggest outdoor bar in the world.

    Lansing United had their first season last year in the NPSL and apparently it went pretty well; they won their league and then reached the "national semifinals", whatever that means. No one really paid attention to them, but it'd be cool if they kept winning and moved up, oh wait...
