Seattle

It's an oft told story at this point, but Grantland has written a piece on why Jordan Morris has chosen to remain at Stanford. We can never have too many Jordan Morris stories.

Zach Scott is, by far, the longest serving Sounder on the squad, but there are three other players who have been around for all of the MLS years. SoundersFC.com talks about these founding Sounders.

According to this rumor from unnamed sources, Sigi Schmidt and Jason Kreis are all set to switch teams. This, of course, should be taken with a very large grain of salt.

MLS

If your are a sports fan, it's hard to watch much of anything without being bombarded with ads for DraftKings. They aren't exactly a company known fo rtheir high moral values and Burgundy Wave makes a good case that MLS is tarnishing their image by association. Then again, prominent kit sponsors such as Herbalife aren't exactly beacons of integrity either.

The Vancouver Whitecaps have officially secured their spot in the playoffs courtesy of a scoreless draw with FC Dallas.

The New York Red Bulls successfully held off the Montreal Impact and increased their lead in the supporters shield race.

USA

In two days, Clint Dempsey and Team America take on El Tri with a spot in the confederations cup on the line. It's time to get to know your rivalry and it's time for Jurgen Klinsmann to answer some questions.

Landon Donovan isn't the only one making a case that this match is do or die for the USMNT coach, NBC sports sums up the viewpoints.

Meanwhile, at Fusion, they take a look at how Jurgen's record of success would fair if he had followed other career paths.

We already knew that Mexico would be missing Dos Santos after his match here in Seattle, now it seems that they will also be missing Jose Vasquez.

Jordan Morris and the US U-23 dominated Panama on their way to topping their group in the Olympic qualifying tournament.

World

John Carver is out at Newcastle and has stated that he wants to go back to building something like he did in Toronto. Presumably this means another losing team.

The FIFA Ethics Committee (don't laugh, it's a thing) has reportedly moved to suspend Sepp Blatter for 90 days.
