Turning Point | Solo: 'I did the stall tactic'
| After having a huge edge in play during the first half, the USA came under pressure to start the second half of its Women's World Cup semifinal against Germany in Montreal. The game changed in the

-- it's taken at the Women's World Cup.|

|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.
