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

Etienne Barbara is quoted saying he likes to play on grass. Is he completely ignorant of the situation here?

Barbara is a really nice guy. I actually got to know him a bit while playing for Carolina and doing some interviews and podcasts with him. He granted me the interview that got him some attention when he felt locked out by Montreal who where holding his MLS discovery rights but not willing to pay him much, therefore keeping him from signing for what he probably should have been making. A deal was then struck with Vancouver and we know what happened after that.

So one thing you will find with Etienne, even though he is a very nice guy, he will sometimes speak his mind and think later. It's something I'm sure Manny will have to keep an eye on. But I trust he will embrace the Stars supporters. Oh, and he really also enjoys fancy cars.

Let's see, will Stars fans get behind a guy who says crazy things? It's like they drafted him from behind the goal. Next, they'll put Jim Oliver on the pitch.
