Headlines
Jermaine Jones knows where he's going to play later this season when his six game suspension ends. The Revolution have traded him away to the Colorado Rapids for a first round SuperDraft pick next year. Jones will suit up for the Raipids in their seventh game of the year thanks to his violent conduct towards Mark Geiger at the end of New England's playoff match with D.C. United. It's also important to note, not that the suspension has begun, Jones will not be eligible to play for the USMNT until it ends. That means no Jermaine Jones in the upcoming round of World Cup Qualifiers.

We already knew that the UEFA was bringing goal line technology to the European Championships this summer and to the Champions League next tear, but today we learned that it will be available for this season's Champions League final.

The investigation into corruption regarding the bidding process in for the 2006 World Cup has concluded. They have found no evidence that Germany bribed their way to hosting the tournament. The investigation was not as thorough as they were unable to speak to everyone possibly involved, including the disgraced Sepp Blatter, who probably would have lied anyway.

I wrote yesterday about the how awful of an idea the European Super League was. Today, there has been plenty of reaction to Charlie Stillitano's meeting with the Premier League's financial elite. Guus Hiddink has come out against it, saying that clubs should be wary of entering exclusive agreements such as this one. So has Louis van Gaal, who won the Champions League with Ajax, who would not be included in this competition, in 1995. There has also been plenty of backlash from journalists and fans that I have spoken with who feel that this is just the rich clubs trying to get richer while ignoring their performance on the field.
