What They're Saying

"Coming out at halftime was the most embarrassing and disappointing thing that has ever happened in my career, and this is my 11th year. I don't think it was warranted. ... When a team loses, there always has to be a scapegoat, and that was me [last season]. And unfortunately it happened in that first game again."

Convey turned pro at age 16 in MLS, played for the USA at the 2006 World Cup, and returned from a five-year stint in England last season to join San Jose for the 2009 season, in which he scored one goal and notched two assists.
