Instant replay in soccer is somewhat of a tough issue. Sure, we want to get the calls right, but going to television replays would interrupt the natural flow of the game that makes it so attractive.  With MLS coming out and saying they are interested in giving it a try, now the rest of the world may be inching towards it as well. At a meeting of the International Football Association Board in Cardiff, it was suggested that a trial for instant replay on "game changing" situations could happen as early as the 2017-18 season. What are "game changing" situations? goals, red cards, cases of mistaken identity, and penalties would be considered. Whether or not a player was offside for a goal would be included in the goals category. This appears to be one of the motivations of new FIFA president Gianni Infantino, who is a proponent of using more technology in soccer. Twelve unnamed countries have expressed interest in a trial.

US Soccer debuted it's new crest last week and we saw a possible leaked away jersey a couple weeks ago. Now, we have an image of a possible home jersey. It's... okay... I guess. The powder blue sleeves could use some improvement, but the rest isn't too much of an eyesore. There seems to be a bad design epidemic sweeping through the United States soccer scene. Whether it's the monstrosities shown off by Columbus or the less than stellar USA kits, we really need to do something about it. Just when this country is starting to gain some respectability on the pitch, we are beginning to lose it with our choices of clothing.
