Like Ronaldo before him dinho has gotten lazy and complacent a few years back and put on some weight. He's still crazy talented but he's no longer an elite player.

Oh ok I get it, so I guess he can't even earn an honorary spot. I'm sure though that Brazil is loaded with young talent which will compete harder.

Kinda crazy to say when you put it in perspective, but Brazil has never really needed Ronaldinho. They have talent on talent, and they take the most dedicated team players. Horsey was always about partying and getting laid which is why he has lost a step in club play and is now a memory in International play.

They may be taking the most dedicated guys now, but Ronaldo was always about the partying and fame and they kept bringing him along until he started running the risk of type-2 diabetes.

The only difference between them is that Ronaldo performed like the best striker in the world regardless of what he did the night before. Ronaldinho got himself into trouble countless times with the coaching staff because he looked like **** on the field due to his partying.

Well, Ronaldo was not a great player by any means before the last world cup........it was a selection made mainly on the past. Kind of surprising they didn't do the same with Dinho considering he has been in pretty good form for Milan this season.

Sad Panda is sad. :(

But not all that surprising right now. I think if he was able to comeback at all it would have been miraculous. I'd rather this than have him force himself and try to play when he's not ready.

Ronaldo was still a beast at the WC but he had definitely seen his play and consistency at the club level faulter because of his partying and ever expanding waste.

Soccer won't become popular in the States because they can't jam in 40 thousand commercials every game.

I think the MLS is slowly gaining interest. Of course it will never be like Europe but the game is becoming more popular here I think. Henry is past his prime but I think he'll have more success here than Beckham did. Henry did start in the Champions league final just last year and scored 5 goals in that tourney. He's not as good as he used to be but he'll bring fans to the game which in the end is a good thing.

I don't know about that. Beckham is easily one of the most well known soccer players throughout the world. Henry is well known, but I doubt the average American who doesn't follow soccer has heard the name before.

He's not as good as he used to be but he'll bring fans to the game which in the end is a good thing.
It'll never be like anywhere. While it might be gaining interest, the interest is still minimal. They'll never fill a stadium, and they can't afford to bring in the players that can. And like Addict said, they go 90 minutes without commercials. That's not very appealing.

Yes Beckham is a bigger name but I think the Red Bulls attendance will go up because of Henry. Just for an example the Gillette commericals with Jeter, Federer, and Henry were playing all the time. Beckham is a bigger draw but Henry still helps.

I agree there for sure. Anything to help increase awareness of soccer is a good thing. (Even if it is that dirty cheat Henry!!!)

Well most countries leagues can't afford the players they need. I'm not saying soccer is going to be bigger than the other sports but over time interest has slowly been rising. The World Cup years always help and even ESPN has been pushing European club soccer this year more than ever which will help the MLS in a spillover effect. The commercials thing is a big problem since we're such a ADD country. When European clubs come over they sell out easily. I was at the Chelsea/A.C. Milan game last year in Baltimore and it was a great atmosphere and packed. Those fans like European matches better but 10 years ago I'm not sure if we would have seen a crowd like that.
