    I prefer ANYONE to Tommy Smyth.

  2. Nick says:

    I prefer Smyth to Bretos, Bretos is a downright fool.

  3. dena says:

    Nice, I’ll read these drunk after I come back from the red bulls game

  4. This Guy says:

    I think Bretos and Smyth would be the perfect combo.

    I think those that don’t like them should be forced to listen to Julie Foudy for every match. That’ll learn them.

  5. Utard says:

    Derrick Rae (sp?) is the best PBP guy I have ever heard. I really like to listen to him call a game. Bretos isn’t as bad as everybody makes him out to be.

    Please, please do more news links/blog links posts. It provides some good soccer reading for those of us who pretty much only visit this site for soccer news and info.

    I just wish I knew what ESPN’s plan was with all of this. Are they saving up for a major bid on the EPL? What’s the deal?

  7. This Guy says:

    The footage of Charles Itandje dancing or fooling around during the Hillsborough Memorial is pretty distasteful.

    It’s on YouTube under his name or under Hillsborough.

    A guy is singing a sad tribute song and he seems to be dancing in his chair and trying to talk and laugh with another player. The other player kinda looks at him like shut up.

    Hate FSC getting Champions League. This just shows that the most dominant Sports Station (ESPN) in America is taking a step in the opposite direction at covering the World’s Sport. Way to go.

    Yea and not having an HD Channel blows Fox…

  9. Brock says:

    I liked max until his MLS review show which I must say was the biggest waste of an hour.

  10. Sickfrank says:

    I think it sucks. I get ESPN2 as part of my usual package and to get FSC I’d have to spend another $20 a month. I’m one of those few that likes Tommy and Derek and the fact that ESPN shows mostly English teams in the CL. . .

    Thanks Sean- I love this piece and read all the links.
