Seattle's love affair with the Open Cup turns sour
The controversy surrounding Clint Dempsey and his trashing of referee Daniel Radford's notebook is quite ridiculous. Ridiculous because there should be no controversy. We know, we saw (and now we've seen it repeatedly) what Dempsey did. We know what U.S. Federation regulations say about that sort of thing -- it is clearly considered, as it should be, an assault on the referee, and the mandated punishment is a six-game suspension.

"I have absolute faith and trust in our medical team to do the right thing. I would never question our doctors."

-- U.S. coach Jill Ellis on the return-to-play decision after Morgan Brian needed treatment after Germany's Alexandra Popp head-butted her during an aerial duel at the Women's World Cup. The team medical staff's series of tests included asking Brian to quickly touch her finger to her nose, to follow a moving finger with her eyes, and to repeat the words "car," "apple," "house," "elbow" and "ball" three times.
