Re: “Cardiac Hawks: Carolina RailHawks scores another comeback victory, 3-2 over Minnesota United FC

Great article as always Neill! As for the "arguably" onsides Shriver, he was definitely so both times despite the whining of the defenders. I was behind the linesman on both occasions and he actually got those right for all the missed calls otherwise including pushes and elbows to Ackley by Christiano Dias. That hack should be suspended by the league for the manner in which he goes into aerial challenges (elbows to the back of the neck). Shriver also had one goal called back due to an offsides call early in the second half which was questionable so I guess it all evens out. Go Railhawks!!!!

Re: “Code Name Continuity: Carolina RailHawks hope to soar into 2013 NASL season

Nice article Neil. I think the Railhawks are poised to flourish with the new players and new stadium ammenities.

Re: “What the Dickens: Tampa Bay Rowdies get a leg up on Carolina RailHawks 2-1 in NASL semifinals

I agree with Matt. Particularly the State game being played simultaneously two miles away against the #3 team in the nation probably pulled a ton of potential fans away.

Re: “Split season? Single-game playoff? Inadvertent leak suggests so as NASL prepares to announce major format changes

Chris this is a less american way of doing it if anything. This is very similar to the way its done in latin america as Neil mentioned. Also, putting more weight on the regular season to determine the champion is more similar to the world game. I'm not sure I'm crazy about the one game "soccer bowl" format. A team could have the second best record in the league and win one of the "sessions" and not host a playoff game. I'd prefer this format with a home and away aggregate championship.

Re: “Two RailHawks suspended for tonight's Tampa match; no decision yet from league on further discipline

Ridiculous that Nurse was awarded anything. The fourth official would have been trampled even worse had Nurse not restrained Colaluca. The Ref lost complete control of the game in the closing minutes and his indecisiveness on the throw contributed to the confusion and subsequent altercation.

Re: “An inside look at the rise and fall of the Carolina RailHawks

Great article Neil! I think you hit some of the key points about why this has become such a struggle the past 4 years. Maybe this should be required reading for the staff members who haven't lived it.
