C'mon, you're too good for this. In good conscience, how can you compare the transparency and eithics of senior executives of major companies vs. guys rooting for a team on a message board? You know much better than that.

I'm someone who actually likes RB but the lack of transperency from our organizatin (pre-RB too) is horrific. I can't imagine how and why they do it.


On a weird note, we protected Luke during the expansion draft and left Mendes unprotected. Kind of stinks, oh well.


Oh c'mon, if Red Bull came out and said anything more concrete, people would be up in arms about how either a) we hate them because they're lying sacks of shit, b) it was their fault so we're going to hate them because it's their fault, even though they were magnanimous enough to admit it, or c) we hate them because they're throwing a player under the bus...

It's a no win situation for them. Better off saving face for the player, and moving on. Just wish they could have pulled the band aid off a while back. I'll miss that short, bald little fucker.

We still can have him after this season..just have to wait and allow the legal beagles work on all of this...I am not an immigration attorney...if that wasn't blatantly obvious..lol but maybe if he waits a year.. reapplies with the incident that wasn't reported, they will allow him back..This is a Tippeligaen team he is on and it was announced almost right after the visa denial was announced..if the fact he is all of a sudden playing in Norway isn't Soler's doing I don't know what is....he is there to keep him fit and playing on a team that will start him straight away so he can come back and wear our #9 kit next season...or im delusional...both are huge possibilities.

According to this: http://www.rb.no/lsk...icle5993931.ece

The plan was really that Rodgers would continue his career in New York, but he had not arranged a visa in time to catch the start of the season that started a couple weeks ago. That means he can play early for the New York Red Bulls 15 July.


So it looks like he would have been available in July... but they decided to move on, at least for this year.

Solli's under the impression he might return in the summer.

Wishing my friend and unfortunately old teammate Luke Rodgers best of luck in LillestrÝm. Hope you return to Red Bulls in the summer ! ;)

Americans For Luke Rodgers Rodgers-Soler-Lillestrom Im going to keep things going with Rodgers news..i can kinda read Norwegian (thanks Grandpa!) and with Google translate shouldn't be an issue. Plus the Lillestrom supporters are going to keep me in the loop. Send me streams of the games and such if any are available. (Ill post them here as well) I really, really hope Luke comes back in the summer...However if Cooper has 10 goals by summer time, do we play the 4-3-3???...i know...lol never happen. Nice find Metro..you have the Googleing skills of Google itself! :cheers:

I don't know about hot, but Luke Rodgers would be 50X better than my sister's fiance.

C'mon, you're too good for this. In good conscience, how can you compare the transparency and eithics of senior executives of major companies vs. guys rooting for a team on a message board? You know much better than that.

I'm someone who actually likes RB but the lack of transperency from our organizatin (pre-RB too) is horrific. I can't imagine how and why they do it.


On a weird note, we protected Luke during the expansion draft and left Mendes unprotected. Kind of stinks, oh well.

What would you gain by knowing all the details? Would releasing it harm anyone? If it would embarrass Rodgers, would you want it done?

Why is this an ethics issue? Should employers protect the personal information of employees or should they disclose everything?
