Scott Garlick's sudden retirement from soccer didn't come at the best of times for Real Salt Lake. Team officials told the Salt Lake Tribune they were "blindsided" by the veteran goalkeeper's decision to accept an offer with a commercial real estate firm. "Obviously, we're put in a difficult situation now," coach John Ellinger said. "So we'll just see what happens."

For starters, the 2007 season is barely two months away from opening.
