A San Jose Earthquakes fan polled r/MLS users on who the most hated supporters in all of MLS were. You. Will. Never. Guess. Who. Came. Out. On. Top.

Megan Rapinoe is basically the awesomest person ever. Here's another reminder.

World

Dortmund fans are known around the world for their amazing tifos and the Yellow Wall. But they put on a wholly different kind of display Sunday, leading a moving moment of silence after two fans suffered heart attacks at the game and one died. Chilling scene.

You may have seen a picture going around the internet the other day that purported to show Diego Costa biting Gareth Barry. TL;DR: There were people mad on the internet. Well, Barry confirmed Costa's version of events in the 'bite' incident. You can put away your pitchforks.

By all appearances Zlatan Ibrahimovic's time at PSG is over. He's leaving the door open, though, on one condition: That Paris replace the Eiffel Tower with a statue of his own likeness.

MLS

Just to twist the knife a bit more on the Sounders' slow start, you'll want to see this rather impressive, game-winning volley off the foot of Marco Pappa.

What's really crazy is that Pappa's goal almost certainly won't win Goal of the Week. That's because Quincy Amarikwa had this absolute stunner against the Portland Timbers on Sunday.

It would appear that Caleb Porter is continuing his Akron reunion, reportedly bringing in Darren Mattocks in a trade with the Vancouver Whitecaps.

Remember when the Sounders gave away the rights to Kwadwo Poku for almost literally nothing? His lack of playing time in New York has fired up speculation that he might be available.

Nick Rimando isn't just a really good goalkeeper, he's also got quite an eye for design.

America

There's a youth team from Ghana putting on quite a show at the Jefferson Cup, and with quite a story.

Life as a NWSL player is rarely easy, but these three are having a particularly rough go after surviving a house fire.
