i cant see it anymore comments either, but i think i noticed this maybe a couple of weeks ago. Maybe they took it down when the whole CBA situation started?
It was around CBA time, but they always could disable comments on certain articles. They could have just blocked comments on the CBA articles. There also was an issue the last couple of months when comments existed that someone created a bot that downvoted every comment. Literally every comment and reply had a +/- rating of -12 or -13 or worse. I wonder if maybe they are trying to figure out a way to stop that and just took it all down while they do some rebuilding.

lol someone actually spent time to make a bot to downvote comments on the MLS site? i mean most of the commentary on MLS news tends to happen elsewhere though ( reddit/ twitter/ here).

To note, I checked if any clubs in French went with Clube de Foot and I can't find any.

This is just bizarre.
Their own supporters are protesting right now too. Any club rebrand needs to involve your supporters. Chicago did the same thing and it backfired on them as well.

Is there any CF team that isn't using the Spanish Club de Fútbol? That's what I immediately think of when I see a team with CF

Ok so check it out. I'm the co-host of a podcast and we recently had on THE Rob Stone. We talked about many things, but of course we focused on the US Men's National team, and some MLS stuff too. We picked his brain about the current roster, rising expectations, Berhalter compared to Arena and Jurgen, and much more. It's a great interview, please check it out!
