mate, I know. I was half joking anyhow, but I will contend that although the current arrangement is beneficial to concacaf, It may not be doing you any favours even politically. Who's the dog and who's the tail? and who's wagging what exactly

Concacaf is better for us for political reasons, it's more powerful. You have to remember, Brazil has the same amount of votes as Saint Vincent.
What do you get with that power though? When direct power is so diluted as it is now it becomes pointless. A merger would be better for you for financial reasons and over the long-run would accelerate the interest which seemed to have sprang around a decade or so ago (or more specifically around the middle of the last decade). And that would give you more indirect power.

Probably, and the whole "Concacaf bloc" seems to be fracturing at the moment too.

In truth, we'll do whatever Mexico does.

Visa problems?
So why was this not an issue before the U-20?

Attendance in Charlotte better than I thought it would be. We got some pretty awful storms today, people have property damage from downed limbs and what not.

Field held up pretty well though considering that and the heat.

I'm not sure if you think that the picture that I posted was from the current matches in the Gold Cup, but if you did, let me assure you they're not, the image I posted was from a friendly a while back. Your first clue, though, that it wasn't from a recent Gold Cup match is that Mexico was playing Iceland, obviously not a nation from CONCACAF.

That being said, Charlotte is hosting a Mexico first round game, so I assume it will draw up similar attendance tonight(they're playing Cuba(?) right now), but as to the field conditions, no idea how the pitch looks.

Yea, I was kinda watching Costa Rica and El Salvador play as I posted that. I know what I'm talking about, sweetheart.

Considering it was deluged with rain, the field, like I said, is fine.
