The U.S. Open Cup Adjudication and Discipline Panel has suspended Seattle Sounders FC forward Clint Dempsey a total of six U.S. Open Cup matches or the next two years of U.S. Open Cup competition, whichever is greater.
The suspension is due to his actions during the U.S. Open Cup match between Seattle Sounders FC and Portland Timbers on June 16, 2015.
In addition, Dempsey has been fined an undisclosed amount.
Kate Fagan Neil Paine and Chadwick Matlin from fivethirtyeight hit up a few topics including the Women’s World Cup, the NBA and A-Guez the baseball player.
Allison McCann stops by to discuss the winners and losers of the WWC group stage, how this World Cup may be proving some parity in women’s soccer and some correspondence stuff with Kate Fagan from Edmonton, Alberta, after the U.S. women defeated Colombia.
I suggest that you start with and stick with the entire pod becuase its good, but feel free to skip straight to the soccer stuff which starts around the 7m mark.
Subscribe to this HOT TAKEDOWN podcast if you are a pod head like me. They are really smart and really good all the time.
Posted earlier this week about Ali Krieger being in the latest edition of the ESPN the Mag BODY ISSUE coming to newstands soon. I ran down the list of soccer players that have graced the list and I missed a couple as pointed out by Chris in Austin (@gay4soccer ).

Coming up in Toronto, people told Drake to move to New York if he was serious about making it. Instead, he stayed where he was and made history by proving that if you’re a truly multi-layered artist, you can make it from anywhere. “Do it the way I did it,” he says in the above Obey Your Thirst documentary. “Do it from where you’re at. If you have the music, that’s all it takes.”
In a rare interview, Drake sits down and speaks with The FADER in a series of videos called “OBEY YOUR THIRST.” This is part 1.
Looking forward to this series. I often say that I think Drake is one of the greatest artists in the history of music – DEFinitely rap. I love this kid. And, he has it “figured out.” His mindfulness and awareness of who he is, is incredible to me.
As far as rap is concerned, what he has done is crazy. Let’s be honest guys, Toronto wasn’t a hotbead for music before Drake was around. Now, it is. Strictly because of his influence… and he put on an entire city, and they are at the top of the heap right now.
Love the argument that he isn’t competing with other rappers, but he is competing with the people that he and other rappers have inspired who are working hard every single minute of every day to take you from that spot.
Really interesting dude man.
Super duper Toronto accent as well. Never really heard him be all the way Canadian like that.
I put this in the Random Soccer in Random Places category but the more I think about it, this is not so random.
Snoop is a noted soccer guy, at least as far as wearing jerseys is concerned, so its no real surprise that his social media team (one of the best in the business) photoshopped him on a Didier GALATASARAY kit.
