RSL just keeps on making friends

What is going on with these guys? Their record on the field is bad enough (0 wins in 11 games), but the record off the field is probably worse. MLS has already fined them twice for tampering, in the hiring of Jeff Cassar from FC Dallas and the talk about clearing cap room for Shalrie Joseph while he's under contract to New England. They had an incident with fans being kicked out of their stadium while protesting against the Chinese government in the friendly with the Chinese national team.

Now, they might be in trouble with FIFA...

Thanks to the excellent RSLFM Report for keeping up with this story. It looks like Willis Forko was called up, RSL told Liberia that he was injured, then he turned around and played 90 minutes on Thursday night. RSL says he was never officially called up, but taking their recent history into account, would it be surprising if people didn't really believe them?
