Check Out Our New ‘News’ Look

Staples soccer has always been a community — and now we’re making more of one too.

The “News” page has long been one of our most popular features — but it was a one-way street.  You couldn’t congratulate Eric Meyer for saving some woman’s life, or the new captains on their election.  You couldn’t comment on the upcoming STA camp, or Kyle Martino’s match on ESPN2.  It was like watching a great game, but being unable to cheer.

Now you can cheer (or jeer) all you want.  Each news item will have a comment option.  We hope for a great Wrecker dialogue on these news pages.  Say whatever you wish (though red cards will be awarded for foul or abusive language).

We’ll roll out some other changes soon too.  For example, we’re adding comment capability to our game results in the fall, so conversations on The Hill can continue in cyberspace.  We’ve already got RSS feed capability (see below); we plan to add more subscription options in the future.  If you’ve got suggestions for more interactivity, we’d love to hear them.

As we head into our second 50 years of Staples soccer, we hope our program — and our website — is as young and fresh as ever.  Go Wreckers!

  1. This is very cool. I can’t wait to see what people are saying, let’s get some good conversations going. It will be awesome in the fall when Staples should have another strong side. Thanks.

  2. Very cool Dan. This is a great step forward. It is going to be fun mixxing it up with the alums, parents and friends of the program on the site. Thanks for all you do.

  3. Like it. Will be interesting to see comments after games. Hope it stays positive. You mention the next 50 years above. I will also volunteer to host the 100 year anniversary of the program as we did the 50th!

    • You are already signed up for the 100th — by popular demand. We’ll have to go far to beat the 50th, but we’re used to setting the bar high. It’s the Staples soccer way.
