According to South African Rugby Union President Oregan Hoskins:
"What we are discussing today should have been discussed before we built the stadiums. It is tragic for us as a nation that we have to act in reverse. In 2007, before the new stadiums were built, I wrote to the minister of sport and said I foresaw major problems coming and I asked for the intervention of the ministry. Unfortunately, we were all taken up by the soccer World Cup and in the hype we forgot we should have been talking to each other. We want to use the new stadiums. We want to take the game to the people, but these issues are going to stand in our way in a big way." - ESPNSo it looks like the $1bil+ spent on soccer stadiums for this year's tourney are not capable of supporting more popular sports in South Africa, like cricket and rugby in their present states.
Where: Soldier Field, Chicago
When: 7pm CST on Oct 9. 2010 (also on FSC)
What: USA takes on Poland in a 17th matchup between the two countries.
Please RSVP with USSOCCER.
The US has won 3 of the last 4 against Poland, but Poland comes to play in a city with one of the largest populations of Poles outside of Poland. Tickets should go on sale soon.
I can already taste the kielbasa and Żywiec beer right now. Time to tell the boss you're busy that day, and make a road trip with obligatory tailgating.

Oyston will stay on until a suitable replacement is found for him. Last year, Blackpool managed to spend only £40,000 in agent fees (just 1/10th of what the remaining current teams in the EPL spent on average).
Yesterday's match 3-2 upset was second fiddle, I guess, to the fact that Young Boys are relieved that their new stadium will be built, judging by the "Young Boys Wankdorf Erection Relief" article that you ran.
Thanks to one of our readers for catching this.
Oh, and in case you wanted to check out the highlights of the Spurs/Young Boys game, here you go:
Spurs just weren't ready for the speed (just before the 2nd goal, the german announcer is saying "a bit to quick and a bit too good" and later says its a "debacle" after the 3rd goal), but once the tactics changed at half time, Young Boys couldn't keep up. I don't expect them to put up as much of a fight at White Hart Lane in the 2nd Leg. It seems their whole goal was to knock Spurs out quick with a high goal tally that would be hard to come back from. Good on them for sticking with a plan and executing to perfection that first half.

We've been hearing rumors for a while that he may be going to Italy's Series A, but we heard the same thing about Bale, and that's not happening now. The latest out is that Juventus and AC Milan were battling it out for Jermaine. Perhaps they got it confused with Spurs forward Jermaine Defoe, who knows... Anyways, the jist of it is that Jenas will be moving to Juve on a season long loan with the option to buy for around £10 million.
Maybe this is just the EPL's way of getting back at the Italians after Mutu's short stint to Chelsea or Corrado Grabbi's move to Blackburn (that's about £21.8 mil on the two who played a combined 57 games and both washed out and yes I understand that Mutu's washout was due to drugs).
Wow. Just, wow.

Many of you might not even realize it, but you have cheered for a team that uses a mainstreamed deaf invention, the huddle. Yes, the huddle, as used in football, was created by deaf football players to keep opposing teams from reading their signing of plays, and this soon carried over into mainstream sports.
