- Not to be outdone:
- From SI: LA Galaxy defender Robbie Rogers says an opponent in a USL match mocked his sexuality. Rogers, the only openly gay player in MLS, was playing with the Galaxy’s reserve team against the Orange County Blues on Saturday while rehabbing an Achilles injury. "In the heat of the last fifteen minutes of the game a player from the opposing team called me a 'queer' repeatedly," Rogers wrote on Facebook. "To be honest my initial reaction was one of shock. This is my fourth season back in the MLS and I've yet to hear another player use that or any other gay slur during a game."
- From ESPN: "It was only recently that the Anaheim, California, native started to creep into the MVP conversation. Granted, New York struggled in the early part of the season, and it's tough to get noticed when trailing in the wake of reigning MVP Sebastian Giovinco, who looks in line to win the award again. But in a country where No. 10s are scarce, it's an odd development that Kljestan's exploits aren't celebrated more. His play is nothing new either. He tallied eight goals and 14 assists last season when the Red Bulls won the Supporters' Shield."
