Regular readers of this site will recall a familiar theme around these parts, which -- at its essence -- goes something like this: Bob Must Go. I write, of course, regarding Bob Bradley and his position as Head Coach of the US Men's National Team. Bradley's recent travails have been well documented here and on many other sites, so there's no need to rehash the arguments in favor of removing the coach.
But today I go further: I'm no longer satisfied with calling for the head of the Head Coach of the US Soccer Team. No, our national problems with the game the rest of the world calls football go well beyond Bradley and straight to the top of the US Soccer Federation (the "USSF"), all the way to the desk of Sunil Gulati. Having run US Soccer since 2006, and serving as the Vice President of the USSF since 2001, Gulati is where the buck stops for football in this country. And it's where the ultimate blame resides.
