The Cooligans Were Robbed
MLS announced that there will be a new addition to the MLS All Star Weekend, an All-Star Skills Challenge. A team of MLS All Stars, a team of Orlando City SC players, and a team of Atletico Madrid players will face off in three different events; shooting, touch and volley, and passing. MLS is brining your favorite FIFA loading games to life and in my opinion, GREAT FUCKING MOVE MLS! This league doesn’t always get everything right, but they hit one out of the park here. The one NOT SO SMALL thing that they missed out on was having the F2 Freestylers host the event. Look, I have nothing against Jeremy and Billy, I enjoy their content, and I get it… they do ridiculous shit (“1st time”) and it makes sense for a skills competition… but, you could have had the GULLIEST Skills Competition on the planet. Allowing Christian Polanco and Alexis Guerreros to host this event, make the fans laugh, the players laugh, and allow some humor into the league would have been amazing! Don’t worry Cooligans fans, the league will be sucked into the Gulliness soon enough.
Now, back to the competition. The MLS All Star team will consist of D.C. United forward Wayne Rooney, LAFC winger Carlos Vela, and LA Galaxy midfielder Jona Dos Santos. Orlando City’s squad has winger Nani, forward Chris Mueller, and midfielder Sebastian Mendez. Finally, we don’t know the full Atletico Madrid team but, we know that Koke will lead the squad in these competitions.
MLS you guys were so close to adding something PERFECT to All Star Game weekend. But, I’ll give you a solid A-.
