    How can they pick All AMERICANS if not from USA, I think more percentage of NCAA teams need to be US citizens... may be only 10% of roster be Foreigners. And that rule should be to be an ALL AMERICAN you must be an AMerican...

    Julie, my rule is that in order to display blatant racist jingoism, you must be able to spell, punctuate and grammatically complete a sentence at a 3rd grade level before posting. You failed! Save your hate speech for the next convention of 1st grade graduates and stop trying to represent America-as-a-whole with some of the dumbest comments I've ever read. It makes me cry knowing that this country says that you and I, by law and moral definition of citizenship, are somehow equal. You, Julia, are worthless...

    Those most gifted in hate speech often employ it best.

    HUH??? Wow, gee-willikers, and I thought that this kind of drivel was for the uninitiated, not relegated to a sports oriented journal! I was obviously wrong, and I completely agree with Ben Zickes' statement! HOWEVER, I digress as my intent for this posting is to once again DECRY the anti-Western states bias that permeates Soccer America's "selection" of players to the AA status, or even the supposed top 25 colleges/universities!!! I've been around the collegiate soccer block since 1968 and continue to see this glaringly obvious bias against places west of the Missippi & Misouri Rivers, and yet, here we have the nation's premier soccer journal out of the West Coast that prides itself for being somewhat objective come out with such pronouncements vis-a-vis selection processes. And so I close with: What SA, publishers, writers, editors, so-called pundits, contributors, etc., don't we in the Western half of the country merit some recognition other than just two (2) players, one at UCSB and the other from Stanford??? Something is woefully WRONG with this picture!!!
