With the news that Rocco Commisso, owner of the New York Cosmos (and chief protagonist in the various lawsuits against US Soccer) is scheduled to hold a conference call with the media tomorrow, we should be in for an interesting discussion as it pertains to these lawsuits.
No word on what he will be discussing, but it’s unlikely that he decides to dismiss these matters. He has previously said that he is in it for long haul.
While pursuing these lawsuits could cost him millions of dollars by the time it’s all said and done, he has the resources to pursue them. Given his past comments on the anti-trust case and US Soccer generally, I doubt he’ll have anything nice to say about the Federation.
For those of you who aren’t fully up to date on how we got here, feel free to read the piece I wrote for Sounder at Heart. It gives you a good primer on what has happened to get us to where we are, and takes a look at where we’re going.
I also joined the First Team Podcast to discuss the ruling.
