Mad Dog and Fighting Pig find home in MLS -- in a good way, of course
Hard on the heels (and that phrase may soon acquire literal meaning) of the arrival of Jermaine Jones in MLS, comes the news that the Columbus Crew have signed Austrian defender Emanuel Pogatetz. Two players who can -- and I'm picking my words carefully here -- be described as hard men.

"I personally don't think Defoe will come back. I think if he doesn't want to be here, you get rid of him. My attitude if you want to be here and you want to buy into what we're doing, let's go. Roll up your sleeves and we'll fight together. And I will be there with you every day. If you don't want to be here, get the hell out of our way."

-- Tim Leiweke, president and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, telling Ted Rogers School of Management students that English international Jermaine Defoe wants to leave the MLS club. (CBC)
