Major Link Soccer: Revs sign Kouassi, spurn Jones

Despite China, MLS looks to be adding four players from three different European first divisions. Seattle Jordan Morris is raising money for type 1 diabetes, a disease he was diagnosed with at age 9, and will be speaking at JDRF's Annual Gala on February 27. The Denver Post has the latest on Marco Pappa's stabbing - details remain murky with both parties telling shifting stories. MLS The New England Revolution signed a new DP yesterday, acquiring midfielder Xavier Kouassi from FC Sion of the Swiss Super League. Suddenly it looks like Jermaine Jones might be out of options - time to...

Details emerging about Marco Pappa stabbing incident

Marco Pappa's tenure with the Seattle Sounders appears to have ended on a pretty strange note. Some time in mid-December -- Pappa's trade was announced on Dec. 15 -- police were called to a South Lake Union apartment where Pappa was found with Miss Washington USA and a stab wound that required him to get surgery at Harborview Hospital, according to a King 5 report. The details of the case, including how exactly Pappa received the wound, were not entirely clear. But Stormy Keffeler, who was crowned Miss Washington USA in October, reportedly changed her stories a couple times...

Somehow the Marco Pappa stabbing story keeps getting weirder

As if the whole Marco Pappa-was-stabbed-by-a-beauty-queen story couldn't get any weirder, TMZ has now managed to get photos and a copy of the 9-1-1 call that surrounded the former Seattle Sounders midfielder's trip to the hospital. Notably, the report confirms the stabbing incident occurred on Dec. 17, two days after Pappa's trade to the Colorado Rapids was announced. While notable, that's probably the must mundane detail to be unearthed. Stormy Keffeler refers to herself as Pappa's girlfriend, and she apparently told the 9-1-1 operator that she had an accident at his apartment. The story...

Reporting to Camp: Three Potential Lineups

Our first pass at what an opening day lineup might be. Caveat one: there are a lot of unknowns here. Caveat two: I wanted to say 'first stab', but Marco Pappa has ruined knife puns with this team for the foreseeable future. The Rapids opened training camp on Friday, and despite not landing any of the big rumored DP targets (yet?), this team still has to, like, play games and stuff with the guys they have. I threw some poop against the wall, and here's a best guess at some lineups. No matter how off I am in the end, it gives us a chance to see who comes into camp with a spot locked down, and...
