  • Long Beach native Alan Gordon, the former Galaxy and Chivas USA striker, was handed a three-game suspension today by MLS for uttering a gay slur.
  • Expect to do more than a little channel surfing to hunt down the 380 EPL games (the entire season) NBC expects to broadcast next season on – wait for it – NBC, NBC Sports Network, Telemundo, Mun2, the Premier League Extra Time package of overflow television channels, the NBC Sports Live Extra website and app, and other NBCUniversal channels including CNBC and USA. The broadcast page includes two highlights shows, a 30-minute version and a 90-minute edition. NBC MLS announcer Arlo White moves back across the pond to anchor play-by-play coverage.
  • The Galaxy tied Seattle 1-1 Monday in the club’s reserve league season opener, Hector Jiminez scoring on a 29th minute PK to equalize after rookie Charlie Rugg was brought down. The Galaxy lineup: Brian Rowe; Oscar Sorto, Tommy Meyer, Kofi Opare, Bryan Gaul; Michael Stpehens (Paul Arriola^ 84′), Hector Jimenez (Colin Clark 84′), Rafael Garcia, Chandler Hoffman (Gyasi Zardes 73′); Jose Villarreal (Kenny Walker 39′), Charlie Rugg (Raul Mendiola^ 78′).

    Perfect illustration of why Robbie Rogers feels like he has to leave the game. How many other great players have we lost because of this crap?

    I’ve been a long-time supporter of Gordo, but I’m zero tolerance. I’m done with him. He needs to figure out how to have a life that’s not based on hating somebody. Ditto for all the players/fans/public who have some kind of messed up need to keep gay people down. It’s got nothing to do with soccer.

    Let’s see: Gordo or Rogers. Who would I rather have on my team? Easy choice.
