USSF Presidential Candidates Take Shots At Establishment Voices

U.S. Soccer presidential candidates Hope Solo, Kyle Martino, Eric Wynalda and Paul Caligiuri yesterday "went after the soccer establishment" during a forum at the United Soccer Coaches Convention. Solo, who appeared first among the eight finalists, was the "most blunt," painting USSF as a "tone-deaf dictatorship." She said, "The Federation has failed you." Martino was “both well-versed and folksy,” while Wynalda was “more off-the-cuff.” Caligiuri “may have been the most pleasant surprise” (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 1/20).
