Why so Grumpy? Kesler still a douche regardless of the format.Still haven't bothered to watch a game.
Would any other sports association in the world set-up a team combined of more than one nation? It's dumb, and devalues what should be a World Cup. You'd never see FIFA do this.
About the only time I can remember in recent memory was at the Olympics: the United Team after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and recent Refugee team. Both obviously extreme circumstances.
