Altidore's frustrations get the better of him -- again
by Paul Kennedy on Sunday, Aug 2, 2015 6:10 PM EDT
Not for the first time this year, Jozy Altidore lashed out and paid dearly. Playing with the U.S. national team in March, he dropped an F-bomb  and was sent off for verbally abusing Italian referee Luca Banti. On Saturday, following an aerial challenge with the New England's Jose Goncalves, Altidore kicked the Revs defender while he was on the ground and was immediately sent off by referee Chris Penso late in the first half of a match Toronto FC lost, 3-1.

Impeding the goalkeeper, tackling from behind -- difficulties of definition
The new FIFA Rule book for 2015-2016 presents the usual problem. What has been changed? The book is helpful in identifying what has been added -- any new wording is clearly indicated as such by a prominent vertical line in the margin.

"Look, we're not talking about wanting to be paid just like the men. We understand their World Cup brings in billions and billions of dollars. But we also understand that our World Cup has found success, not just this year but the previous World Cup in Germany. It is my expectation that [FIFA will] start stepping up to the plate and start paying these women a little bit more so they don't have to have a second job. So their World Cup championships will be closer to what the men are getting paid."

-- Abby Wambach on closing the disparity between what FIFA pays national federations that are represented in the men's and women's World Cups and consequently what these federations pay men and women in terms of appearance and bonus fees. (Sporting News)
