Robbie Rogers didn't play as a substitute in the first half of the Los Angeles Galaxy's game Sunday night.
Robbie Rogers was listed as a substitute for the Los Angeles Galaxy's game on Sunday night after Major League Soccer said it had received his international transfer certificate.
Seattle Sounders defender Marc Burch said Tuesday the suspension he received for using a homophobic slur during a playoff game last season needed to be harsh and was deserved.
Daniel Woolard isn't exactly the most attention-grabbing individual.
D.C. United bolstered their beleaguered defensive corps Tuesday, acquiring veteran right back Robbie Russell from Real Salt Lake for a third-round pick in the 2013 SuperDraft.
Despite a brave effort late in the game to try and pull out a win, D.C. United had to settle for a 1-1 tie with the visiting Portland Timbers on Wednesday, and with it, see the club's playoff hopes dashed.
For the past two seasons, D.C. United defender Marc Burch's career has been stuck in neutral.
Questions abound for D.C. United in 2011. How quickly will the club rebound from its worst season ever? Who will score after the club notched a miserly 21 goals in 30 games in 2010?

Burch says he can't make up for what he said _ which was caught by television cameras _ and is focused on proving that is not who he is.
"Obviously they knew of the incident, but it wasn't something that needed to be spoken about," Burch said. "They understood I wasn't coming out there to make myself look good. I just wanted to let them know that it wasn't something that (reflects) who I am. When I went up there, I think everyone just appreciated the fact that I was there to enjoy the game and enjoy the game with them."
