Hall of Fame: The two who are missing
by Paul Kennedy on Friday, May 6, 2016 1:22 AM EDT
The election to the National Soccer Hall of Fame of Brandi Chastain (in her first year of eligibility) and Shannon MacMillan (in the Veteran category) brings to 11 the number of former women's national team players who have been elected to the Hall of Fame. But several stars continue to be overlooked, notably Briana Scurry, named to U.S. Soccer's all-time Best XI in goal, and Tiffeny Milbrett, who scored 100 goals in 206 games.

Two badly botched PK calls -- but the MLS remedy is misguided
Well, not that brilliant a weekend for MLS refs. Specifically, a couple of dead-cert penalty kicks not called. If you assume -- which we always do, I think -- that a PK means a goal, then these were arguably game-defining calls, given that both games were won on one-goal margins by the team that profited from the miscalls.

"What was exciting for me was how U.S. Soccer not only latched onto this concept, but took it a step further. [We're] talking about maybe doing a concert over the induction weekend, so having a concert, the induction ceremony, and a Hall of Fame game."

-- FC Dallas president Dan Hunt at groundbreaking ceremonies for the National Soccer Hall of Fame being built next to Toyota Stadium and expected to be completed by the end of 2017. (MLSSoccer.com)
