"Everybody talks about who's better, Clint [Dempsey] or Landon, all this bulls***. And I want Clint to do well. I want Clint to succeed. I'm happier probably than anybody when he's succeeding. It's good for our team. It's good for our sport. It's great for Clint. Clint's a little bit different of an animal. He still has that crazy hunger to succeed, more so than most. That's great. That's a beautiful thing. The more players we have like that, the better it's going to be."

-- Landon Donovan on U.S. teammate Clint Dempsey. (SI.com)

    Soccer America Staff: Can we please remove comments when the speaker so obviously uses profanities? I refer to the inappropriate (yes, childish) language used by our national team captain?, Landon Donovan in the quotation above. That might be what came out of his ugly mouth, but that is no reason to pass it on to us. In fact, that then means it should not be used. Mr. Donovan needs to grow up. Please don't aid the careers of the permanently immature. (Incidentally -- one of the reasons I stopped subscribing to your weekly, back when it was published in print that frequently, was this very reason.) A note to Donovan: It is an incredible honor to be a captain. It is an incredible honor to play in a U.S. national team. Grow up. I was terribly embarrassed when the entire German public picked up on your vile mouth based on one word you screamed when missing a "sitter" against Poland in the run-up to the 2006 World Cup. Yes, the German TV captured all of that on TV. It made my country look bad. It also makes you look about 11 years old. I would never -- based on many factors, this one included -- give you a team captain's role.
