Both the official NYCFC and David Villa's twitter accounts have been great this season. Villa's English has gotten so good/so fast that I am starting to think he will be a commentator on ESPN when he retires.

What was it of?
It was a mock "most interesting man in the world" type spot featuring Pirlo, with Godfather music, and him saying fuhgeddaboutit at the end. It all seemed like fair use under parody, but I wonder if they got a takedown notice from one of the IP owners.

I'd have thought that a major sports team would make sure they were able to use media like that before uploading, surely? Or am I giving too much credit?

First, I don't know if that's the problem. It's just moderately informed speculation. But if it was the problem I would cut them a break because while the parody fair use exception to copyright is reasonably broad, it's edges are always subject to dispute. This was certainly not worth fighting over, from NYCFC's perspective. It could be the kind of thing you put out there hoping the parties who could potentially object just let it slide, but you pull it if they don't, because it means more to them than to you.

Could have sworn there was at least one other picture of Super Jack training, but when I went back I couldn't find it.

Regardless, it's good to see that at least he's on the field.
