Actually, eff that. I won't spend another dollar on tickets or apparel until this [redacted] is fired, which I'm guessing will happen maybe by the end of the weekend. However, this is something that will mar my fandom for a while. I'm now Vermes Out and will forever remain that way.

Y'all should read this story. Wilkinson had the chance to stop this from happening to these women but not only did he punt on the chance to get this guy out of the sport, he tried to pass him to another club. This doesn't even go into Wilkinson squashing the story of one of their male players beating his wife and his own damn kids. This is horrible and should cost Peter his job as well.

Same here. It is really really sad and a poor poor choice for the club.

New warning: Don't get in a fight with someone who doesn't even need to bother to buy ink.

These PR statements are always designed to obscure as opposed to enlighten but the statement doesn't even make sense.

"[Sporting KC] ran a diligent and exhaustive process to identify our new Sporting Director. It was grounded in the deeply-held principles and standards we have adhered to since the day we acquired the team."

and

"That said, the impassioned response from our fans reinforced to us a fundamental philosophy that has driven us since Day One: To honor and protect our valued relationships."

so the club is insinuating that they knew about everything, investigated it and didn't think it was a problem but because of the fans they fired him.

It is an insane statement.

I think they trusted Peter and let him do whatever he wanted and he burned the owners. This took a week plus because they had to work out Wilkinson's compensation. Jake Reid might be a casualty of this too. I can't imagine the owners are happy about losing seven figures because Peter hired this guy for a week.

I'm glad they made this move but I'm still not happy, this front office has become so detached from what grew this club a little over a decade ago when the new ownership took over.

I'm intentionally listing this as a separate post because these issues should be separate, but this Wilkinson news distracted everyone from seeing that they opened training camp with undoubtedly a worse roster. They haven't invested hardly anything on this roster despite dropping several high dollar contracts. There's two weeks left in the January transfer window.

It was an absolutely insane and tone deaf "hire," particularly at a time when they are competing for soccer fan's dollars in the market with the Current.

yeah, to your 2nd point mir, it's like they are banking off our "best record since May" team that will be able to replicate that for an entire season, which i'm not buying.  team is aging, lost kinda, and we clearly don't have youth coming up through the system or we don't play them.  holding hope there is still a big signing in the midfield or at center back, and still think banking on pulido staying healthy is a fool's errand.
