Headlines
Clint Dempsey is more or less guaranteed to make his MLS return on opening weekend when Seattle takes on Houston Dynamo. Dempsey has been a full participant in Sounders practice all week after being cleared to return from his irregular heartbeat that showed up last summer. He played 80 minutes in Seattle's exhibition finale on Saturday and seems ready to go for the regular season.

Former FIFA secretary general Jerome Valcke was handed a ten year ban from the game for his massive corruption and he is challenging that ban, Valcke's ban came from a scheme where he was pulling a profit from World Cup ticket sales, but he claims he did nothing wrong. We all know that this is far from the truth, but the Court of Arbitration for Sport will have the ultimate say on that. His ban has already been reduced once. It was originally 12 years, but FIFA dropped two off.
