Rothenberg Vanishes

A few days ago I wrote a widely read and circulated post about conflicts of interest at US Soccer, as related to the ongoing dispute they have with the NASL over league designation criteria. You can read about it here.

I noted in the post that Alan Rothenberg was a member of the US Soccer committee that proposes criteria for league designation within the US soccer professional leagues. Rothenberg is closely tied to the MLS and continues to have substantial financial relationships.

Today, a commenter (thanks @sportsfrk!) pointed out that Rothenberg has disappeared from the committee, as listed on the US Soccer website.

Here yesterday, gone today. Unfortunately, US Soccer's COI problem persists. And it looks like they also have a bit of a transparency problem too.
