It’s Seattle-Portland week. What more needs to be done?

Let’s get to some links:

* * *

— Also from SoundersFC.com, here’s a well-made video of Will Daniel‘s recent visit to Seattle. Daniel is a longtime friend of coach Sigi Schmid and has become an important part of the team.

— If you’re heading down to Portland early, you might be interesting in checking out Kicking + Screening Soccer Film Festival going on through Friday. The short film produced by Golazo on former USL Sounder Santa Maria Rivera will be showing Friday night.

— Around MLS, D.C. United has been dealt a devastating blow with the news that Dwayne De Rosario is out 10-12 weeks with a knee injury (effectively ending his season), also ex-Sounder Alvaro Fernandez scored his first goal for the Chicago Fire in a 2-1 win over Toronto, and Chivas USA’s Juan Agudelo caught up with Goal.com for this piece.

Here’s an update on the Tacoma Stars with news the team has hired Joey Waters as head coach. Their season will start in November.

Here’s an interesting story on potential match-fixing up in the lower leagues in Canada.

Here’s a good roundup of Sounders FC academy products playing college soccer.

— Lastly, the U.S. Open Cup is going to become even harder to watch on GolTV now that it has been dropped by DirectTV.
