You can read Part I here. There’s likely to be a lot of news coming out this week in Lawsuit Land, so before I get overloaded between my actual work and whatever else happens, I figured it would be a good time to continue the story on the amended […]
Yeah, this isn’t good MLS, and can’t totally be explained by bad weather or a march.
Eat…drink…march. Do you. ✌🏾
Yeah, so this will probably be the last I write about this lawsuit. I wrote a story about three weeks ago, which outlined the basics of David Beckham’s eternal search for a stadium site in Miami, and the lawsuit holding it up. The tl;dr version being: Beckham had taken […]
As I previously discussed, the NASL indicated that they would likely amend their federal anti-trust violation complaint. Well, they did that and then some, formally adding MLS as a defendant in the federal anti-trust case. This was not necessarily unexpected, as there was always the potential for NASL […]
Off the legal track for a minute, but it looks like there are some changes in store for the 2018 US Open Cup. The piddly prize amounts have been raised modestly, and there will be some changes made to the format. H/t to LeanZinger, who dug this out first. Another […]
Here is a picture of a Prince cover band performing at a race track in Auburn, Washington I saw last night. It went about as you’d expect.
Much like the CSI enterprise, with multiple franchises littered throughout the television landscape, there are no shortage of lawsuits involving US Soccer. The New York case, filed by the NASL in New York State Court, alleges that the members of the US Soccer Board of Directors breached their fiduciary duties, based […]
I occasionally guest on podcasts, discussing legal goings on, as well as just talking soccer. We usually have some good informative discussions, so if you’d like to go back and listen to some of those appearances, I’ve created a page where you can do so. I’ll update as […]
Feuerstein’s Fire #363: NASL v. USSF Lawsuit Update Show No fireworks tonight, but there was what I thought was an engaging discussion regarding all things US Soccer at the lower divisions, which these days focuses mostly around the lawsuits filed by the NASL against the USSF. First up […]
No, this won’t be a weekly feature (at least I don’t think it will), but with some time having passed since New York Cosmos owner Rocco Commisso’s remarkable conference call, and with some time before we get more substantive documents in the various lawsuits, I figured I’d ask […]
Two stories I’d like to write about in the future are: 1) The suit filed by Riccardo Silva (owner of Miami FC which plays in the on-hiatus NASL) and Dennis Crowley (owner of the Kingston Stockade in the NPSL), as well as, 2) The various legal issues, which […]
No time to dwell on the past. After denying the NASL’s appeal of the District Court’s ruling denying a preliminary injunction, the parties were required to come together within seven days to discuss the next steps of the case. This included setting a schedule to argue the USSF’s […]
Okay then. NY Cosmos Owner and NASL plaintiff Rocco Commisso just concluded conference call with reporters to discuss all manner of things happening in United States soccer. Commisso pulled absolutely no punches, leaving no doubt about his feelings about soccer in the US (“failed”), MLS (“phony”) or the […]
This may be a bit of picking over the NASL skeleton, but the San Diego Union Tribune is out with a story confirming that San Diego 1904 will be joining the USL for the 2019 season, after the NASL cancelled their season. That’s not particularly surprising of course. […]
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 […]
