”We don’t control the rights for our away matches but have talked with beIN Sport and know that they have an aggressive plan to expand distribution over the weeks and months to come.

-- U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati in response to beIN Sport's announcement that it had acquired rights to all of the USA's away qualifiers in World Cup 2014 qualifying except a possible Mexico game. The Al-Jazeera-owned sports network, which launched last week, is currently unavailable on cable. (The New York Times Soccer Blog)
