ASN Morning Read: So Much Yelling by Everyone

So, does anyone have any thoughts about American soccer today? Perhaps about the coach? No, okay, let's just move on. KIDDING. Also, Benny Feilhaber returns to Major League Soccer.

  • "But someone’s got to start coaching this team."

  • Benny back: "The deal will pay Feilhaber more than the designated player threshold in MLS, a source told The Star. That number fell at $457,500 in 2016. In other words, Feilhaber, who will be 32 next season, will receive a raise from the $412,187.50 he earned in 2016, according to figures released by the MLS Players Union. But he will not occupy one of the club’s three designated player spots. Sporting KC will instead utilize either targeted allocation money or general allocation money to 'buy down' his salary. The contract came together over the past 10 days. Sporting KC made only one offer during the 2016 regular season, which Feilhaber classified as 'nowhere close to what I would be willing to sign.'"

  • But how do you really feel:
  • This is good commentary from Jozy Altidore: "[It is about] looking at each other in the mirror. Being honest with each other and having some honest conversations. Going all around the room and making sure when we are coming back in March, the first thing we are doing is competing."

  • As Winter Sets in, All Eyes Turn Toward Sunil Gulati

  • Cool:
