So last week there were no Musket Rounds. This week we are committed to there being at least one edition of Musket Rounds! But seriously, I want to apologize for that, I had finals for my summer courses and some disorganization at the office just made it impossible. To make up for it, today we have a bunch of New England Revolution news, some Herculez Gomez highlights, and some very intriguing news regarding Mohammed Bin Hammam.

This could lead to some very interesting things...or it could go nowhere. Because FIFA's already "distanced themselves" in their own way from Bin Hammam.
