KC Paper Has No Love for Wizards SSS Efforts
Damn y'all. The Pitch, "Kansas City's leading source of sophisticated information" has a piece on the Wizards and their efforts to get a stadium built that is borderline scathing. Well maybe not scathing but at the very least it's extremely snotty and pointed. Amongst the boasts, claims and accusations are that the Wizards FO price gouged the Beckham game, and that they have little faith in their product.
But it's the following quote that is most likely to make smoke come out of The Don's ears:
"Major League Soccer's business model is pretty shameless. As I've written, the league essentially exploits children to get what it wants."
That's some shit right? Child exploitation? C'mon now. Last I heard the league's kits weren't made by The Gap so child exploitation might be sensationalising a bit. It's not surprising though, being that this same publication has compared the league to trench-coated kiddie-fiddlers in the past (see the 2006 article entitled “Here, Kiddie, Kiddie,”).
In the end this type of story just shows that the league is growing up. MLB, NBA, and NFL teams have had these sort of battles in the press for years in regard to getting new buildings. Now as soon as Taylor Twellman is in the paper for sleeping with an intern in his truck, then we will have truly arrived.
