Defending Bob Bradley's retention 

September, 8, 2010

In the comments section after last week's post, you guys let us have it pretty good:

"This is a pile of rationalizations."
"U serious?... Is every guy in the media on the USSF payroll?"
"This is probably the dumbest article I've ever read on ESPN."

So this week, because we love our subscribers -- all of them -- we decided to respond to some of your criticism. Because we might not always be right, but we will be accountable.

To see the full argument for why Bob Bradley is the right choice to coach the U.S. team and where certain fans have been misguided in their arguments, plus bold words from Bruce Arena and others, you must be an ESPN Insider.
