"It’s OK to be passionate about your club, but to target two players who have been the core of the U.S. men’s national team and have done everything in their power to help grow this sport
and our league, to turn on them with the vitriol that some of them did, I thought was bad sportsmanship. I spoke to a number of players in different leagues who said it was unprecedented. It’s

enormous amount for our U.S. program."
