Rick Teverbaugh: Soccer sabotages itself


At the very least, one of them could have been and should have been Donovan.

I believe if this sport is to become anywhere near as popular here as it is in other countries, cutting familiar faces (and there are very few of those) isn't a way to build popularity going into this every-four-years tournament that is probably the world's biggest sports stage.

I wish the U.S. team well in this competition, as I do in every type of tournament on an international scale. But I wish someone was watching out for the possible popularity of the sport.
