    While 14 days may be too long (?). MLS needs all the "hype" and "build-up" it can get!

    When will the MLS TV commentators get it right, i.e., they all seem to fabricate that Rodgers & Richards are key elements to the RB team when in fact these two players have no soccer brain whatsoever...Lalas should letnup on Tim Ream, it's not one player, it's the team.
