From a purely sporting perspective, I actually agree with the moves.
- Ryan Meara is a starter quality keeper. Younger and makes a lot less money. He's impressed any time he has gotten the chance. It is time for him to take over the position.
- BWP's age caught up with him. By the end of last year, he was our 3rd chose striker behind White and Barlow. It was time to move on.
From an emotional standpoint...this hurts. This really hurts. Its the end of an era. We should have won a Cup with these guys but we never did. 3 Shields to show for it though. And a lot of memories. Time to re-build and create a new era of Metro legends
I agree, more so especially with BWP.
I also understand the thinking behind moving Robles but that move I'm more iffy about. We didn't want to have so much cap space tied up in two gk's so we went with the younger guy, very logical. I just think that we're gonna lose a lot of veteran leadership with Robles gone and it's gonna be nearly impossible to replace. And I think he has at least a few high caliber years left if he wants to continue playing. I definitely expect him to be a starter somewhere next year in MLS.
