Re: “A short history of the Dutch in South Africa, 1652-2010

This was a great read until we got to the World Cup part (who knows or cares, this is America) and then the end where I guess we had to hear leftist claptrap such as-- "....our ongoing collective responsibility—here and now— to address the devastating legacies of that oppression."

There is no such thing as "collective responsibility." Responsibility lies with the individual no matter what anyone thinks or says. Here is what he meant: feel enough guilt from a past that you had nothing to do with so that we -- the self-anointed who are smarter than you -- can take some of your resources to go do what we want in the name of history repair (an impossible and absurd task) or, if you prefer, reparations.

No, thanks. But still glad the garbage was left to the end so I could enjoy and learn from the vast majority of the article.

Re: “A short history of the Dutch in South Africa, 1652-2010

I find myself not caring about any of this. Amazing how such a "strong, proud, powerful people" could lose the entire southern portion of their continent to a tiny group of Europeans, superior weapons or no. Que sera — guess that illustrates the power of superior arms, doesn't it? In any case, you should really give up all this white guilt nonsense — the better man won, so to speak. Another great takeaway is this: Be able to continually defend your borders and you should avoid all that pesky "enslavement."

Re: “Colin Clarke returns as head coach of Carolina RailHawks

Gaffe-r is right...he f8cks up all the time. "A lot of success over the last 3 years"....less smoke blows out of the chicken-poop fired electric plant off of I-40 down in Sampson County.

Re: “Sources: North American Soccer League poised to announce LA expansion

Just another team to fold. NASL will die soon, within a few years.

Don Garbage is going to put a MLS team in virtually every NASL city eventually, choking NASL to death which he is desperate to do. It does not have the funds/backing to compete.

Re: “Sources: North American Soccer League poised to announce LA expansion

Yes Duncan, it has to do with the local connection to this publication's primary readership. Although I'd quibble about something being "buried" in the masthead.

Re: “Sources: North American Soccer League poised to announce LA expansion

Did I miss something? What the heck does "The Cary-based Carolina RailHawks is a member of the NASL." have to do with this article? (Confusion) Oh, figured it out, it's buried in the masthead that this is a Cary and other city-based newspaper/communication.

Re: “Subtraction by addition: Carolina RailHawks draw 1-1 with Fort Lauderdale, but lose ground in playoff race

Also in NASL news, looks like there's a new book on Amazon about the Silverbacks called Guerrilla Soccer.

Re: “Deadline in US Soccer Pro League Standards emerges as motive for sale of NASL's Fort Lauderdale Strikers

Doesn't the same ownership group own both the LA Galaxy and the Houston Dynamo? Seems like a double standard.

And why does the league need to have 6 pacific time zone teams to stay a div 2 league?

I thought the Oklahoma City NASL team was dead in the water after the ownership teams for the OKC USL Pro team and the NASL team joined to run the USL Pro team? Is there another ownership group stepping up for OKC and why when there is already a USL Pro team there with the newly updated stadium? Seems like NASL should target Phoenix, Las Vegas, and San Diego before OKC.

He doesn't make the rules. He is the elected head of a voting Board of Directors with fifteen members.

Re: “Deadline in US Soccer Pro League Standards emerges as motive for sale of NASL's Fort Lauderdale Strikers

Interesting that Gulati, head of US Soccer, is paid by an MLS owner but still gets to make the rules for ALL US leagues. Seems like a conflict of interest. Screw getting transparency in FIFA, I'd like some transparency from MLS and USSF.

Re: “Zack Schilawski of Carolina RailHawks to enter law school, possibly ending his pro soccer playing career

I think I speak for Zack's family, we've not missed a game (middle/high schools,Wake Forest U, a game in
New England and EVERY RailHawks' game) . He's a Grandson every family would love to have.

Z. loves what he's doing, is very bright and asses every play in practice and on the field. We understand and share his dilema. We also know that he'll do well, whatever his decision. GO Zack! Gramma Jean

Re: “NASL Commissioner Bill Peterson discusses league expansion, playoffs, MLS, paid match streaming and other topics in advance of 2014 regular season kickoff

Really awesome to see Petersen pushing to Get the NASL were it belongs, on top of the north american soccer scene. They need to sign a lucrative tv contracct though, these small regional tv deals are a start like they have now but they have to keep pushing. The Cosmos are clearly and still the most recognizable name in north american soccer. I know mls is listed currently as the top league in north american soccer, but why name the league after MLB Major League Baseball, Cheesy at best.
Alot of the mls teams do have great names such as the timbers, sounders, rapids, galaxy, earthquakes(perhaps best team name in mls), and the union. But these new teams are 100% percent trying to copy European teams such as nycfc, sporting kansas city or dallas fc which changed its name from dallas bulls, such frauds, at least try to be original like the NASL, although minnesota United sounds just awful. Really hoping to see the NASL and mls merge and come up with a better league name than mls and team names such as ----- city. or ----- fc, or real -----, or sporting ----- . Keep the momentum going NASL
