First Class: NASL Team of the Spring 2016

The final week of the Spring was rather exciting. Indy Eleven remained undefeated but, more importantly, rallied to score the four goals needed to win the Spring title over the New York Cosmos. It was an exhilarating performance from Indy as they thrashed the Carolina Railhawks. I wanted to wait until

First Class: NASL Best XI, Week 10

It was a vital weekend in the NASL. Unfortunately, the opening drama--the shocking upset of the New York Cosmos by Ft.

NASL Spring 2016: Week 4 Predictions

As we enter the middle of the Spring season, we're going to start seeing some major reshuffling in the table.

For instance, even though striker Dario Cvitanich has
