Good for RB for doing it. Never hard of the guy but just sad as all hell to hear the news. That side I have to say shame on the FO for not doing the same for Giorgio Chinaglia. I think in away RB just side a big fuck you to all soccer fans that call NY home.

i dunno about the chinaglia thing but good for RB for the moment of silence and the arm bands. i understand the argument that some people made but there's a difference when someone dies doing something other than playing their hearts out (no pun intended) and when someone dies while trying to entertain us. sure, he wasn't world reknown, but the fact is that the livelihood of pro soccer players and supporters are in effect tied together and you have to respect and honor when that love causes the death of a player or a supporter.

the world is smaller than we like to think it is.
You're a fucking monkey.

It seems Philly fans have signed up on metrofanatic to vote for themselves (in 'What team do you hate more?') . No real fan of this team would vote anything other than DC.

Whatever the merits of any particular moment of silence, its pisses me off how little silence there ever is. How fucking difficult is it for people to keep their mouth shut for 60 friggen seconds????

Everton / Liverpool silence was impeccably observed yesterday. That was a football match though.

I don't even know why I'm bothering, but come on. You really think that has anything to do with people being able to shut up for 60 seconds?
The U.S./Argentina friendly last March-- does that count as a football match? Because that was the loudest moment of "silence" I've ever heard.
