Kyle Martino: The former player and on-leave NBC Sports analyst provided the names of six donors, all but one of whom said they had no business before U.S. Soccer. Five of them said they were fine publicizing their names: Rick Van Benschoten, Eric Eisner, Ralph Martino, Matt Popoli and Michael Meyer. The sixth donor did not wish to make his name public. Popoli, the president of New York Surf Soccer Club, said his non-profit club is hoping to get into the U.S. Soccer Development Academy.
Surf literally checks none of the boxes on the DA application. No facility, no track record of developing national team players.

Although Martino also checks no boxes that would suggest he will get any votes anyway.
