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. Lauderdale Strikers--quickly dissipated as every team that could have taken advantage of the Cosmos lost wasting opportunity. So now, going into the final week of the Spring, the Cosmos have all

First Class: NASL Best XI, Week 9

It was another wild weekend in the NASL. Teams fell that should have won, teams won that really shouldn't have, and a draw frustrated one team's climb to the top of the standings. Let's take a moment and consider the Spring table. Since the league instituted the split season format, it has

24 Hours In the Life of an SG Leader

Every time you hear a chant, or listen to a drum beat in the stadium, know that what brought that sense of atmosphere to you, is the culmination of hundreds of hours of work from your local supporters group. The songs, the pyro, the beer, the terrible dancing and even

First Class: NASL Best XI, Week 2

Last week's Best XI was dominated by Carolina Railhawks and this week's is no different. Although only Carolina and New York Cosmos stand with full six points from the first two matches of the season, the Cosmos had much easier opponents and were safely ensconced on their home pitch. Carolina is,
