Extractions: by Chris Snear Washington DC, April 11, 2005 (ASN) -Sometimes a tie is a fair result and a legitimate assessment of a game. DC United and the Chicago Fire played a game that fit that description Saturday night, a 1-1 draw in front of 19,052 fans for United's home opener at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC. Both teams had dominating stretches but for the majority of the match the flow was back and forth, with each creating equal scoring opportunities of equal quality. They were even statistically equivalent as each side had 10 shots, 11 corner kicks and 15 fouls. "It was a better start to our game tonight," said Chicago head coach Dave Sarachan. "I thought we came out with the right energy and put them on their heels early. I was disappointed we gave up the goal, but our guys had a good positive attitude coming out in the second half and it went back and forth in the second half for sure, we dodged a couple of bullets but I thought we had some chance. So a fair result in my mind and good result for us."

Over there I'm very glad that players such as Ben Olsen (Nottingham Forest) and Mike Petke (Bayern, Munich) are getting the opportunity to go overseas and receive loans to and trials with top European teams. Many fans complain that it hurts U.S. soccer because MLS isn't compensated for the loss of players once their contracts expire, but that seems like fair business to me. Plus, if MLS paid younger American players what they deserve instead of tossing away money on expensive, do-nothing foreigners maybe Olsen, Petke, and others would have more impetus to show loyalty to the league. Gordon Charles Omaha Men of honor It's a real shame that you guys selected Mamadou Diallo as your Player of the Year. After Diallo's shameful attack on MetroStars goaltender Mike Ammann he hardly deserves being singled out for honors. Ironically, the player that you should have selected is Ammann's teammate, Clint Mathis. Although he had a bit of a slump later in the season, no single player did more to energize his club than Mathis. He was a revelation and, what's more, seems to carry himself as a professional as well.

Extractions: -fitness -techniques -intelligence -freestyle ... -mentality In mid-January of 2003, youngster Alecko Eskandarian was selected as the #1 overall pick in the MLS Superdraft by DC United. Alecko played three seasons at University of Virginia as a forward and established himself as one of the college's finest soccer players. During his career at University of Virginia, Alecko started 56 out of 60 games, racked up a total of 4,565 minutes of playing time, took 232 shots, and scored 50 goals. He also set various school records, including most goals scored in a single season (25). What made you decide to go pro? It was a tremendous honor to be selected #1 overall in the MLS draft. Definitely a dream come true and a storybook start to my pro career. I was also extremely happy to be picked #1 because I got picked up by DC United. This puts me in a location where I am not too far from my home in New Jersey but also pretty close to all my friends from University of Virginia who I am sure I will be seeing a lot of. DC is a great franchise and we are going to have an awesome team so I am extremely excited.
Extractions: Special to SoccerTimes WUERZBERG, Germany (Monday, November 27, 2000) News that Mike Petke, the MetroStars young defender, is about to become perhaps the first American to get a full tryout with German Bundesliga power Bayern Munich comes as no great surprise to many German Bayern fans. During this past summer, in the Bundesligas off-season, this soccer-crazed nation of 80 million was shown live and taped matches featuring the best league action from Brazil and Argentina and Major League Soccer from the United States. The only MLS team featured consistently with every match shown was the MetroStars, the club that employed German soccer legend Lothar Matthaeus during the 2000 season. Germany experienced an MLS and MetroStars boomlet. The team results were featured in the weekly soccer magazine Kicker and covered on the DSF Newscenter, Germanys answer to ESPN SportsCenter. Talk to any soccer fan in Germany this summer and names like Adolfo Valencia, Clint Mathis, Mike Ammann and Tab Ramos would pop up. Another face familiar to German fans was MetroStars defender Thomas Dooley, warmly remembered for winning a Bundesliga championship at Kaiserslautern in 1991. Ask the average German soccer fan what he or she thinks of Matthaeus being with the MetroStars, and the response was usually the same: the MetroStars can learn much from him, but the team did just fine in his absence.
Extractions: SoccerTimes WASHINGTON, D.C. (Saturday, April 22, 2000) Theres nothing like a good pair of shoes. Just ask MetroStars defender Mike Petke, who credited his new boots, even though it was his header in sudden death that provided a 3-2 decision over depleted D.C. United before 14,985 at RFK Stadium tonight. "I was in the right place at the right time," said Petke of his third Major League Soccer goal. "I think it was my Kappa shoes. I have worn them twice this season and we won each time over D.C. United. Those were also the MetroStars only two victories of the season and the New Jerseyans (2-4) climbed out of the Eastern Division basement past United (1-4). The Metros had not won at RFK since September 1997 and had dropped six straight to the Washingtonians entering this campaign. "This was a very important game for us tonight which we needed to win," MetroStars coach Octavio Zambrano said. "The guys played with heart and desire. The effort was great and its always nice to win on the road, especially against D.C. United. It was the second straight setback for the defending MLS champion United in extra time.

Extractions: Parental involvement in youth sports can be a double-edged sword. Without legions of soccer moms and dads to driver young players to practice, serve as volunteer coaches, and pay the freight, youth leagues would quickly wither and die. It's the same story in any other sport you can think of, from hockey to swimming to baseball to football. But parents can sometimes cross the line. As a result, out-of-control parents are a growing issue in youth sports around the country, not just soccer. "Parents and coaches have lost perspective on what sports is about," says an exasperated spokesman for the National Association of Sports Officials.

Conference finalists (semifinals), Conference semi-finalists (1/4), not qualified for the MLS Playoffs (-). D.C. United won the Major League Soccer title in 2004, but they were hardly dominant, winning only 11 of their 30 regular-season games. The real reason behind United's first MLS Cup in five years was the discipline installed by coach Peter Nowak. This season, they are sharing RFK Stadium with a Major League Baseball team, the relocated Washington Nationals, with grass placed over the infield dirt for soccer games. With Kansas City Wizards moving to the East, that conference now has the defending champion, the two teams with the best records last season, late-surging New England and Chicago. The Western Conference now has two expansion teams, CD Chivas USA and Real Salt Lake.
