If Kemar just really wanted to go to Europe (like Tyler Adams), that would be one thing. That's beyond our control
But it was more than that.
1) Kemar was unhappy with his pay. Which was totally understandable. He was probably the best bargain in the entire league with the amount we were paying him. Yes, he signed that contract, but there is NO reason we couldn't have given him a raise.
2) He specifically stated that he wanted out of Red Bull because of the way we've treated out veterans/legends (Dax, Sacha, Robles, BWP) and that he did not like he direction this team was going.
He's a MLS Best XI player. And by all accounts, his absence was the main reason why we did not make MLS Cup in 2018. To only get $1.5M for him is an absolute joke. I am so disgusted with this move.
Two things would have to happen for them to get boo'd that first game; they would have to totally shit the bed in the transfer window, and lose the game. If those both happen, I can easily see an immediate, vocal response. But if they win, or they sign a bunch of promising talent that simply fail to gel in time for the first game, I wouldn't expect it.
