what are they the Denilson of DPs? or is that too much credit?
Wow. That was cold. Bravo.
Ah yes. But like cheap crack, we all continue to go back for more, don't we.We can all poke fun at their pretending, which they do, but unfortunately, MLSR gets the last laugh here.What is it that makes me go back to that site?
I miss you Jade =P
Pathetic, why does that site still exist?
aw man guys come on, that site was created for the explicit purpose of sharing RUMORS in the soccersphere, they do just that, they never claim to be the end all be all source or even a legit source at all, its just for fun... leave mlsr alonebut TOR is still the shit
Did MLSR have the DP teaser graphic for a while or was that just a joke?If so that would make me laff.
Yeah, I'll be one to agree with you on this one -- you probably know better than I do. But fannation.com, a very reputable site, owned and operated by SI.com, seems to think MLSR has some clout. They link to the site every now and again. You should let them know what's up. Get them to link to you! Seriously.
MLSR was designed to share rumors? I thought it was designed to blare ads in your face.Seriously, what was up with the DP banner on MLSR?
That's the thing with MLSR. I've gone out of my way (and so have the other blogs) to leave them alone and let them do thier thing. But they like to steal the work of Goff, Ives, Dellapa and the other real writers and pass it off uncited as thier own work which to me is unacceptable. As for the banner thing, the 5 of us made an effort to begin working together on several differnet levels and placed banners on our sites to help "brand" ourselves if you will. MLSR looked around and decided that they wanted in and didn't ask anyone what it was about...they just decided to put a banner on thier page without knowing what it is.When asked politely not to they got really nasty with Bruce --who is THE nicest guy ever-- and said they could do what they wish.So basically they wanted to act like children. And none of this is about traffic; that's not our goal. If there was one it's to put out a more diverse and original brand of content out for US soccer fans and promote QUALITY blogs, which I'm not sure MLSR is.
MLSR sucks a fat balsa wood cock on the credibility table.I like my news to be true and the insight I read to be interesting and original. They are neither. My advice is to let them be and don't visit them. They will die or silenced one way or another.
I'm frankly amazed by the amount of acrimony that site has managed to generate. How long have they been around - a year?I haven't seen a lot I find objectionable on their site, but when basically everyone you trust on the soccer intertubes has their hate on, well ...
have you thought about networking DP throught oleole.com??arseblogger has been all about it recently so i signed up..it'd be nice to set up a larger american base on there and maybe get some running commentary on the League.it's not quite as lame as big soccer...more like facebook with a purpose.
MLSR gets the gas face?
Outstanding.And when they aren't stealing from Steve, etc., they are just making stuff up, like when they said it was a "5" that some keeper from Monaco would sign with DCU even though Steve had reported in print and online that the guy left camp and one would not be offered.Wow. Then tehre was the time someone sent them a fake e-mail about a trade and they had it online in warp speed with their highest rating. Asshats.
They just need to clean up their act.
My biggest problem with them is when they try to inject their opinions into the posts. Whoever is writing for them is simply a terrible writer, and their opinions on many issues are straight out of MLS General. Their handling of the Columbus situation was downright childish, and they continue to go back to that. Some of the stuff they come up with is unbelievable relating to that story.I guess we have to give them some credit. They do get very good traffic for a site with NO ORIGINAL CONTENT outside of a witchhunt for crew fans and mls hooligans.
