Headlines
Soccer United Marketing president Kathy Carter is considering making a run at the USSF presidency and she would run in place of incumbent Sunil Gulati. Carter has been around the game since the mid-90s, when she was the vice president of marketing for MLS when it was born in 1994. SHe's also worked for AEG, who own the LA Galaxy, the International Olympic Committee, and companies that have worked with FIFA.

Carter is not what this country's federation needs right now. She has close ties to Gulati, who most of us want gone, and essentially represents the business and marketing interests that already have too much control of the game around here. I fear she would more or less keep things as they are, which very few people actually want. I'll be honest, I think I'd rather have Gulati get reelected than have a blatant marketing exec in charge of the USSF.

The deadline to officially file as a candidate is on December 12, and most people with some connection to the game of soccer in the USA have already put their names on the ballot.
