People who cover Landon Donovan think he's a great player

>> Sunday

I know otherwise.

Landon Donovan has won the Honda US Player of the Year award.
The reason was because he scored 9 goals this year during National team duty. That is fucking horseshit. 5 of those goals were scored from the penalty spot, where if you miss, there is a major problem with your offensive capability.

Had YCS been given a vote, my vote would have been for goalkeeper Tim Howard or defender Carlos Bocanegra, who anchored a US "First-Team" backline that surrendered 8 goals in 13 matches (4 to Brazil). But because the award is voted on by the media, and Landy's the most-recognized player, he gets it.

I'm not sure if I'm more pissed off that Donovan won it, or that the soccer writers who vote on the award just didn't bother to do any research.

If YCS had been given a vote, mine would be for shelving soccer awards posts for a day when there isn't a full slate of NFL games and two ongoing LCS series.

As for voting writers not doing any research, now you know the pain felt by decades of baseball fans.

To hell with that. It's an international match weekend too.
