Gulatti - Good President, Bad Situation

Being the President of U.S. Soccer is a voluntary position, a non-salaried job.

And just as some things in soccer here are going rather well, other things recently seem like they're falling apart.

Can Sunil Gulati, the President of the USSF survive all the current tumult? Does he even want to continue his volunteer job?

Smart, dedicated to the game, and honest, Gulatti has some tough decisions which he has to make soon.

Wasn’t he bought up on sexual harassment charges for having female players call him “ big daddy “? And walk around in daisy duke short ? Also wasn’t this guy the one who was heard saying the tighter the short the better ? Or was this another USSF moron ?

Nah -- and I think the comment you're referring to about shorter shorts was actually made a number of years ago by none other than former FIFA Pres.Sepp Blatter when he was opining on why women's soccer wasn't attracting more fans. Implying that if women players looked more attractive in their soccer gear, there would be more fans supporting the women's game.

His comments were pretty much scorned upon worldwide, BUT -- hold on

I think the length of soccer shorts, women and men's, are way too long. Ditto basketball. To me, what athletes wear today look ridiculous.

And I dare mention at the beginning of this summer I went to a department store with my wife who said that I need some new pair of shorts -- so we looked. Tried some on and I said no way am I buying these, they look ridiculous -- they aren't pants, and they're not shorts -- I may as well just roll up a bit my pants.

Even Bermuda shorts are longer I think than today's "shorts."

I had the same problem with her the prior summer when she bought me new bathing suits that went below my knees. They looked like bathing suits from a 100 years ago! They have been sitting in my drawer nowfor two years.
