USL/NASL Discussions USLSoccer.com :: USLFans.com :: TheCup.us :: NASL.com | Links | Link to US !
Article Posting Guidelines are spelled out here. Thanks
Announcement: After 15 years of life, these boards have dwindled to a place for a mere handful of folks to post links and have the rare discussion. Having born the financial burden for both the hosting and the software for that same 15 year period, and just not having the time anymore for this effort, I have decided to shutdown these boards at the end of the USL & NASL season later this Fall. It has truly been a blast to have been part of growing a nation-wide fanbase thru internet interaction, that in 1999 was slim or non-existent for the Lower Divisions of Soccer. That has all changed and for the better. Fan support around the country is nothing like what it was when I started this, so from that perspective, I feel I accomplished my small part in contributing to growing that connection into what it is today. Thanks for everyone's support over the years, and especially for all the friendships across the country that Vicki and I have so enjoyed (and still do) over the years. Thanks !! Dan Barnes

for this last season, he called the Dean directly to explain why playing for the Stars was more important than med school - for the third year in a row...

Yup. I'll be the one to say he's an idiot if he doesn't follow through with Med School.

Unfortunately, this is the way of professional sports.

Zath is right, unless you know something we don't - which could be the case. But he was pretty much telling everyone things were still up in the air just a week ago. And he wasn't going back to New Mexico this year but hanging around here. I think Justin Davis and of course Kevin Friedland were staying. Brian Kallman lives here so he's staying. Not sure who else.

Funny, when I read the initial post by Zath my first thought was, why is he posting that, he knows we could never afford..... oh ya. Things are different now, aren't they. LOL.

Seriously, I did go through that scenario. I think the new overlords will be careful with the money, but they do have the ability to go out and get an actual striker who can produce numbers. Since the Kicks, have we ever had a proven goal scorer on one of our teams?

The closest person I could think of would be Johnny Menyonger when he was in his prime or Melvin Tarley when he was in his... whatever Melvin was in at the time. But Melvin did have two successive 9 goal seasons if I recall correctly. Heck, Melvin scored 5 goals for Phnom Penh Crown this year. But I digress - and so does Melvin.

I was chatting with Kyle just recently. He is a big question mark and gave no hints what he is going to do.

This is hilarious. I loved hearing from people talk smack at me when I gave my opinions about Etienne Barbara. I find it interesting that some dont remember the guy as he scored 20 goals two years ago.

I do think Pablo is a much more memorable player. Seriously, I was in Bricks with the guy once and his ego pushed me off the bar stool and out the door. His head butt against the Stars will forever memorialize him as being a first class a$$hole.

I bet he goes MLS and sees little reserve time. Five years from now he will be living in Omaha and running a soccer school.

I know Taka and Ernest are in town. I saw them running near the NCS the other day. Taka was going to play indoor with the team in Syracuse, but it did not work out. Geison, Cristiano and Lucas are playing indoor. I thought DelDo was going to play, but not sure if anything worked out.

I think Davis and Kallman will be back. Kallman is playing some good soccer and would be dumb to hang up the boots.

I know that Tobin is back this next year. I imagine that all the players signed this year had an option on their contracts as he did. Altman is at least in town and training with those still around.

Why would that make somebody an idiot? Are they closing medical school next year?
