Video shows only a verbal confrontation.

Something about a cat running onto the field..

He should have elbowed someone hard enough to break their face since that will only get you a "formal warning"


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.

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

Is this the same slur that tens of thousands of Mexico fans shout on every opponent goal kick, without sanction?
Will the USMNT walk off the field at MetLife on 9/6?
Perhaps we should yell PETKE! on each MX kick?

It wasnt a smart thing to do. I dont see him coaching in MLS again due to the slur and the amount of suspensions. A guy like Arena, Bradley or vermes would need to hire him to rebuild his reputation.

He was a dummy for doing this in this day and age. He could have called the guy dozens of other curse words and would have kept his job.

Not the smartest of things for Mikey to do with the way people take the meaning of that word.

Petke's only got himself to blame.

Of course, but if the word said was puto, I doubt he used it as a homophobic slur. After all, Mexico will not even admit that it is.

I love Petke but he isn't a victim here. I think firing him is debatable, but I can't really be mad at RSL for it. I agree that Petke shouldn't be banished for all time, I haven't read anyone saying that, but firing a public facing employee for using slurs in the workplace seems to be a pretty standard reaction. What would happen if you called someone that in your workplace?

I agree that I highly doubt he intended it to be homophobic, but how he picks and chooses his words should be held to a higher standard than a bunch of fans in attendance.

There are two other aspects to this situation that people aren't discussing.

 

First, it's being reported that he followed the refs down the tunnel and continued to yell, "puto" at them.  Then, he wrote "puto" on something and either delivered it himself, or had it delivered, to the referee locker room.  He might have survived this if it was just something he said once on the pitch.

 

And second, RSL played and looked really good since he's been banned from the team.  If they went 0-3 while he was gone, the outcome might have been different.
