ESPN has a pretty good interview with Rocco on their website.  He is pissed at USSF, MLS, SUM, USL and just about everybody connected to soccer in the United States.  Says he's full steam ahead with the two lawsuits he's brought against the USSF.

 

Interesting in that he says he lost $18,000,000 last year on the Cosmos.  In practically the same breath, he brags about spending as much on one player ($400,000) that the typical USL team spends on its entire payroll.

The fact that he can't see that one has pretty much everything to do with the other is amazing.
Let's Go Buffalo!!!

Rocco ... says he lost $18,000,000 last year on the Cosmos ... brags about spending ... on one player ($400,000)


In much the same way we could talk about spending $400 on something, but blanche at spending $18,000.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

NY state court lawsuit dismissed.
Basically, similar to federal lawsuit.

So, NASL lies dormant this season,
while waiting for a civil trial in the Fall.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.
