Not that I was expecting awesome soccer coverage from it, but the Fire's page is a just feed of AP stories and a stuff from soccernet's stat pages.

If they aren't producing their own content about the Fire, they could at least have included this pretty decent Fire sroty, which is on ESPN's soccer site.

Oh, and they left out the Fire, the Sky, and the Red Stars as answers to their poll question about which Chicago team is most likely to win a championship next.
