Blanco bit

So I talked to a U.S. Soccer honcho about Cuauhtemoc Blanco's outburst at the U.S. Open Cup.
I wanted to know why there hadn't been any news about disciplinary measures yet. Turns out, the committee to deal with the matter hasn't even met yet. They'll decide the case in August, apparently. There's no rush to act, I was told, since the Fire is out of the Cup and any censure would only affect next year's tournament.
So it has yet to be decided, but it was clarified that U.S. Soccer would keep to their jurisdiction. In other words, anything they decide won't affect Blanco in MLS, unless MLS decides to act on its own. It doesn't make sense that they would.
