“The behavior that Kok has shown online is so far from the core values of PSV that a continuation of our cooperation is impossible. This was a hopeless and embarrassing situation for him and for us.”

-- PSV general manager Toon Gerbrands after the Dutch club's foray into esports blew up in its face when it had to terminate the contract of 22 year-old FIFA player Tony Kok two days after signing him when it discovered sexist comments about PSV fans that Kok, an Ajax fan, made on Twitter.

    Good let's black ball him a kid and a 22 yr old still is a kid no matter how good he is for making a kids comment on some twitter or face book account. My family is always trying to get me a 74 yr old to join Facebook now you know why I don't. Someone doesnt like what you say they try to destroy you. I remember hearing about a teacher saying how bad the kids were in her class on her Facebook account. She gets fired for saying it.
