Seattle

The reportedly record-setting offer to Jordan Morris is just a small part of the Seattle Sounder's stated goal of getting younger in 2016.

It's probably too much to hope for another DeAndre Yedlin in our immediate future, but maybe we can help the upcoming youngsters by helping them follow Yedlin's diet.

The Seattle Times has the story of how Sigi was smuggled into his first match at Azteca.

MLS

MLS has a suprising number of players and one goal machine that all originate in sub-Saharan Africa. A new MLS partnership will make it easier for at least some of their families to catch their games on local TV.

The post-season awards keep rolling out. The latest recipient is Sporting Kansas City goalkeeper Tim Melia who has been awarded MLS comeback player of the year.

New York City FC has most of their games carried locally on the Yankees' owned YES network. Local fans may feel lucky that the playoffs are on national broadcasters since YES network is in now a dispute with Comcast which has left the network unavailable to many in the local market.

A lot has been made of the fact that the final four teams in the playoffs are some of the teams with the lowest current payrolls in the league. This definitely says something about the parity in MLS, but over at American Soccer Analysis they are arguing that it may not mean as much as it first appears.

USA

Trinidad and Tobago is *not* a bad team, but that doesn't necessarily mean that drawing them was a good enough performance.

Fusion has taken it so far as to claim that Monday's result cements the US as a colony of Trinidad and/or Tobago.

World

France Ligue 1 has confirmed that they will not give in to terrorism and that the league matches will continue as scheduled.

Former US National Team player Julie Foudy is arguing that now is the time for FIFA to look at issues of gender imbalance in world soccer's governing body.
