With the Team's drop from Supporter Shield winners to this Year's abysmal performance, could a change in the diet offerings have a reason for the "lack of hunger" from the Team? Not saying that an individual's choice of personal diet has anything to do with it. But random article posted today on ESPN.

The direct quotes from BWP in this article make it sound like he's just not eating red meat not that he went completely vegan.

I recall listening to one of Matt Harmon's Coach's Corner podcasts earlier this year with Preston Burpo. He said that a bunch of other players, in addition to BWP, were getting into -- or at least experimenting in -- a vegan diet.

Burpo's a pretty hardcore vegan himself, so, even though the article says no Red Bulls coaching staff or trainers tried to change Wright-Phillips' mind, I wouldn't be surprised if he had an influence on the decision.

Our Intermittent Fasting on Championships has lasted 24 years.

 

So...there's that.

Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero are also vegan. Something tells me that's not the problem.

I hope there's a cheat day coming, 'cause I'm getting hangry.
