I've wanted him here forever, because the whole RB system rules with a big forward. Cooper was evidence of that before, White is now, and so is Paulsen at Leipzig.

Anyway, we're never winning anything again unless RB decides to spend money here, so...fuck.

Who needs Mandzukic when youve got Matty Ice!

He would have probably just been fined if he only had said it to the refs....... But he went and made a sign that he wrote and stood in the hallway waiting for the refs. He's a moron who deserved to get fired.


Exactly my point. I was not referring to the word he used, I was referring to the excessive action he took. I don't think you need to be a part of "outrage culture" to recognize that as being a bit more extreme than just cursing out a ref on the pitch.

No, the way he is portrayed is a gross exaggeration of what he actually did. Doesn't matter though, he served his suspension, and this is over. Red Bulls now need to do a smart thing and hire him, as he is someone who proved to be a competent coach and actually delivered the goods for this Club, unlike every single other one not named Jesse Marsch (assuming they fire Armas, where by the way the story is not completely written yet).

Perhaps there's exaggeration by some, but your angle is also quite the downplay. This was not as mundane as a coach yelling at a ref on the pitch, as you make it seem.

As far as acting like a child and a slur - yeah he cursed at a referee. I heard the word he used many times, he was just trying to put down/curse the referee for helping another team, that's all this was, no more and no less. 


I am not of the camp that's trying to bury Petke and say he should never work again, but that's an over simplification of what he did and removes the nuance from the conversation. What he did was surely a few degrees worse than the picture you are painting.
