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.

"Chivas in the L.A. market is beyond an afterthought. I think even most soccer fans aren't aware that they are in this market. So I think there's going to have to be a substantial reboot, and you can't do that quickly. Certainly, they've atrophied over the last few years to the point where if they take a year off, it's going to be like 'if a tree falls in the forest.'"

-- David Carter, executive director of the Sports Business Institute at USC's Marshall School of Business, weighing in on the side of Chivas USA going on hiatus before its new owners relaunch the club after its sale by MLS. (ESPN FC)
