Yeah, exactly.  The last reports have it at 1.5 mill so it's pretty clear that they were just doing what he wanted and letting him go.   I could care less about the amount because as long as we get the max allocation, that's all that matters.


Why? We dont use the money?


The New York Red Bulls previously kicked around Major League Soccer as the MetroStars with limited success. But after transforming under a new banner in 2005, the Red Bulls have become a force to be reckoned with in the Eastern Conference. The club has made leaps of progress since its previous incarnation and now has its focus on bringing the league title to New York.

Awesome player for us. So glad DC United waived him.


He saw shit getting really, really, really bad under Hamlet and Armas and got out before rock bottom.

Very intelligent move by Kemar.

Best of luck and Ill be following and rooting for you.

I was feeling better about this team for a few hours


That will teach you.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

The team seems to really like Seagrist so gotta assume he's our starter.  That's extremely gutsy (and probably stupid) so let's see what happens.  Duncan was never good on the left side so that shouldn't happen.   I'm not sure Buck was good anywhere so hard to get behind that.

Probably, but that's the only real usable money anyway.  Anything on top would go to stuff the team already spends a good amount of money on.

Some college scrub is gonna be the starter now for the entire year? How can anyone think that is a good idea?

Is anyone actually surprised? Kemar has been looking to move abroad for YEARS, he's just been way less whiny about it than the likes of Murillo, Kaku, or Long.

Maybe that isn't their plan.  Don't know.

 

But a lot of college kids have turned into good players.

In a vacuum, I'm not surprised or even disappointed.

 

When you take into account that this offeseason we've dumped BWP, Robles, Murillo, and Taxi, Robles essentially said that Denis doesn't know what he's doing, Taxi said that the team seems to have no intention in being competitive next year, and the FO has shown zero signs of bringing in a player who will clearly improve the starting XI outside of the normal buzz-phrases that they've said for years (we're looking for someone who fits the system, we can spend if we need to, etc.)...

 

It's the context of this entire offseason that makes this move look so bad.


Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

I know the whole "lol they're gonna replace him with a USL scrub" joke is the default reaction of 90% of fans right now, and that's not totally unfair, but its kind of funny to see it in reference to Kemar considering his resume when we signed him...

That's true, Tarek wasn't awful at LB.  Maybe that will be the move.  Almost mobile enough to handle it out there and definitely had some good crosses.  Just dangerous with that though because as far as we know, we only have 3 startable CB's.  Nealis wasn't ready and I'm not sure he has the quickness to ever be ready.

I'm just a guy out there buying all the "Patrick Seagrist Rookie of the Year" stock he can get.
