A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

Is MLS a Major League? It depends where you are, and who you ask, apparently.

The 2026 World Cup needs North American versions of Saudi Arabia v. Argentina and Morocco v. Portugal.

And it needs a final like the one that overfortunate Qatar got.

I'm not a fan of the three-team groups. Too many opportunities for a Gijon 1982-like "fix".

By contrast, the groups stages in Qatar were extraordinarily exciting.
