RCU Stuff, More Joe Gaetjens, and FIFA Downs Goal Line Technology

RCU Stuff
Here's an article from a few weeks ago in the Huntsville Times on one of the Madison City officials responsible for bringing the team to Madison.

Vote for whether the home jersey should be red or black at RCU's website. They have a poll running this week to help make the decision.

Mark your calendars now. Below are the regular season home dates for RCU. All games are held at the Madison City Schools Stadium and start at 7:30PM. You can see the full schedule here.

May 22, 2010 Pumas FC

Jun 05, 2010 Atlanta FC

Jun 26, 2010 Chattanooga FC

Jul 03, 2010 Tulsa FC

I would expect to see RCU add an exhibition match the weekend of June 24th and several preseason exhibitions.

Also, on July 17 at 7PM, RCU closes out the regular season in Chattanooga. Plan on making the drive up Rt. 72 to Finley Stadium to experience what are the rowdiest soccer fans in the NPSL. To make it even better, the match could decide the Southeast Region Championship. I went up to last year's match in Chattanooga and had a great time.

SI With More Joe Gaetjens

Not to be outdone by ESPN's article last week, Alexander Wolf and Joshua Robinson of Sports Illustrated have written a terrific article on Joe Gaetjens. You can see the magazine version with photos here.

FIFA Votes Down Goal Line Technology

FIFA has voted against implementing goal line technology. And now, journalist are lining up to vent about the stupidy, fear, arrogance, and folly of the FIFA fuddy-duddies. If you've read the PWT-blog for a while, you know that I am totally in favor of using goal line technology. It just makes so much sense, but the old men at FIFA don't want to take the "humanity", or what I would call correctable mistakes, out of the game.
