The newest MLS Player of the Week is a very deserving midfielder by the name of Nicolás Lodeiro. Somebody will have to explain this honorific to me and how it is that the Player of the Week isn't on the Team of the Week...

Cristian Roldan appreciates how the addition of Lodeiro allows him to play a more simple game.

The Professional Referee Organization (PRO) has seen fit to comment on the controversial play that cost Seattle a goal last weekend. Warning; they disagree with pretty much everybody else who has analyzed the play.

The Brian Schmetzer era has started off pretty well, but MLSsoccer has a list of five foreign coaches the Sounders could bring in to replace him.

LAFC has announced a groundbreaking ceremony to be held next Tuesday for their upcoming stadium. Maybe I just don't know how these things work, but wouldn't the fact that they haven't yet demolished the existing stadium on the property make this more of a "stadium-breaking ceremony"?

Speaking of stadium construction, the rising costs of construction in Texas have forced FC Dallas to scale back their planned renovations.

NBC Sports has spotlighted Detroit City FC as a demonstration of why Detroit should receive a Major Leage Soccer expansion.

The LA Galaxy have proven that they don't understand how coloring books work by releasing this adorable video of Alan Gordon "reading" one to his children.

MLSSoccer.com has posted this video showcasing the "shootouts" of old-school MLS:

Olympics

Hope Solo has (rightfully) continued to receive criticism for her attitude in the face of the US women getting eliminated from the Olympics. David Squire of The Guardian has illustrated Hope Solo's Olympic Round-up.

The Olympic Men's soccer final has been set and you won't want to miss it. A rematch of sorts between Brazil and Germany most certainly has the host nation hungry for redemption for that event in the World Cup that they don't speak about.

Neymar set a new Olympic record by scoring a goal only 14 seconds into Brazil's 6-0 destruction of Honduras.
