There's so many times that ticket reps have been known to talk out of their assess... In other words, I'll believe it when I see something official. That said, I'd be stunned if the friendly was not a Sounders game against a club team from Europe.

As a former ticket rep for the SJ "Smurfs" Earthquakes, ticket reps can be very aggressive. :D

Per Soccer by Ives twitter account -

For USMNT fans who were looking forward to reported USA-Argentina friendly in Seattle, I'm hearing game is "not likely" to be in Seattle.

USSF hates the west coast. We may be Soccer City USA, but we're NOT Big Media City USA, and that's all that matters to the anti-american USSF and Gualti.

Wait.... Why give a fuck about USMNT or Argentina?

WC2010 was an interesting spectacle, but except for our Algeria goal it was pretty uneventful and mostly low level. I enjoy Europa matches more than most of the WC matches, so why do we even care about a friendly that none of our players are involved in?

Turf sucks, period. And watching Messi slip-slide over that temporary sod was no fun either. I hope it doesn't happen here... the AO chants are fucking retarded.

If you don't care get then stay the fuck out of this forum.

Some of us love the international game and would love to actually see the A squad play at Qwest.

USMNT is what American club players strive for. AO Seattle is made-up of mostly your brothers and sisters from the ECS.

I watched Brad Evans play for USMNT at Qwest Field. Best Independence Day I've ever had.
