    Gulati has done the honorable thing and fallen on his sword.

    Or he canvassed his voter base, saw he was coming up short, and saw more dignity in stepping aside than in running and being defeated.

    She's the Hillary Clinton candidate. Okay, she's a woman. But she'a a US Soccer insider. Wynalda is the Bernie Sanders candidate.

    some say wynalda is the trump in this election and martino is sanders ( according to reddit) ....also wasnt there some sort of deadline that just passed for candidates to have at least three people or letters of nomination? does she have any ? ( i figure yea i mean she is in SUM)

    i still think there should be a panel or something with every single one of them there answering questions. I know there have been a couple of events but i think only a few are there and not all at once.

    It would be nice if the entire membership of US Soccer could vote.

    i get it ....but i dont think any federation does this ....all one can do is protest with the wallets and eyeballs not watching US Soccer product to have some change ( or i guess massively tweet about it)

    These political analogies are obviously designed to ensure I despise all potential USSF prez candidates.

    What if Mitt Romney ran? His name was taliked about. Mitt Romney would be the Al Gore of USSF presidential candidates. Name recognition, business experience in the private sector, ultimately wouldn’t win.

    But... but... Al Gore did win. Though I fully expect the USSF to fix their election processs too.

    HBO Real Sports had a recent expose on Tom Byer, who has spearheaded soccer development in Japan and China.
    Here is some background on Tom:
    Over the past 20 years, Tom has been conducting events in more than 2,000 locations with a total of 500,000 children participating. To culminate his achievement, Adidas honored Tom with the Golden Boot award, which he accepted in France after the World Cup draw of 1998 for his contribution to youth soccer in Asia. Tom remains the only youth coach to have received this prestigious award. In 2012, the AFF football blog named Tom as one of the top 10 influential foreign footballers in Japan.
    I wish I could find the entire expose, as it was very informative. Tom is heading to the states but in a small role. Kyle Martino, if he is elected president wants Tom to fill a larger role. If anyone has HBO, I recommend seeing the episode.
    Here is a preview:

    It is funny how the brain works... before writing that post, I literally was reading a scathing report on an individual from work and I guess that word was floating in my head when I wrote the post. I'll leave it up for comedic value. LOL

    Nowadays men in positions of power seem to prefer to expose themselves.
