Athletica's Cooper continues his battle for improvement of soccer

St. Louis Athletica owner Jeff Cooper might just be starting to feel like one of those performing dogs in the circus - jumping through hoops.
Cooper, whose life's work for most of the just-ended decade has been bringing professional soccer back to St. Louis, received another setback earlier this week when the United States Soccer Federation decided not to grant sanctioning to Cooper's new North American Soccer League.

My message to USSF: Give support to one of the most dedicated and hardest working soccer people in this country.
