The decline of Brek Shea

Jeff Carlisle reports on the decline of Brek Shea, who lashed out at FC Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman when subbed during a 2-1 loss to San Jose on Wednesday.

Dallas is currently tied for the fewest points in the league alongside Toronto FC and the Portland Timbers and Shea's performances have mirrored those struggles for much of the season.  The 22-year-old served a three-game suspension for kicking the ball at an assistant referee in a match back on May 12. He has tallied just three times in 2012 league play and was also part of the U.S. U-23 team that failed to qualify for the Olympics.

On Wednesday, Shea voiced his displeasure at Hyndman as he exited the field and the two appeared to exchange some sharp words. Shea then sat by himself on the end of the bench with a towel wrapped over his head as his team's late rally fell agonizingly short. Hyndman said after the game,  "I think it's better that I don't make any comments about [Shea's] performance." When asked what Shea had said to him, Hyndman responded, "I think it's probably better I don't make that comment, either. ... I think [Shea's] in enough hot water already."

FCD captain Daniel Hernandez said: "I thought [Shea] was very disrespectful, not only just to Schellas, but I thought to the rest of the team. He's a young guy still, but this shows the immaturity there in him, and I think a lack of professionalism that right now, at this point in the season, the way things have been going for us, we can't have."
