    You're a horrible writer. The month of August has been better without you.

    Yes! If you could find twenty cities that would be great!

    Like for the expansion teams There has been a lot of new cities coming into the picture like Sacramento and Oklahoma city. How realistic is it for those new cities in the running? I know MLS next target for expansion is the southeast but I saw the turnout for sac town and even Indianapolis and in my opinion I would rather have those teams than a team in Miami with a questionable fan base or Atlanta known as a bad fan support town. As for chivas wouldn't it be better to change the name to like LAFC or something more appealing to a broader market other than limiting themselves to the Latino community? But in the end could you rank the 10 best cities for mls expansion again; your last article on that was really good and with this rapid expansion I would like to hear your opinion. Also I hate the red bulls just for their name, couldn't they buy out the cosmos and change their name to the cosmos. It would attract a lot of old fans and wouldn't be a disgrace to the mls.

    Could do another update of the 10 possible expansion cities since there has been a lot of activity since your last article? Also could you do an article on Chivas USA and what they should do with that club? Like should they relocate them or go through a rebranding process or do they just need a new stadium away from Galaxy?

    I'm glad you deleted that James Harden Lakers article. It would destroy your rep!

    I saved your Jim Thome article and just wanted to say in time that you don't know anything. Thome still has game left in him. He is carrying the phillies right now. Currently in his sixth game he is batting over 500 and has three home runs with 13 rbi's. I just wish for one time you journalists eat your words and say you were wrong.
