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?
