PLEASE NOTE: This post has been updated since its original release. The CSL did not respond before the release date, but has since done so, and in an attempt to hear both sides of this story, I’m now including the statement they sent me.

SmallScale Arguments – The Battle for Boston

Welcome to a brand new series in SmallWorld, dubbed SmallScale Arguments. I’ve called this segment SmallScale Arguments because all these news stories will be more opinionated than factual and may not have much lasting impact on anyone. I’m still writing about them, though, since they’re giving people, clubs, and organizations in the local US soccer […]
