RSL Clown Cabal Fined Over Joseph Mention

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, Real Salt Lake was fined $5000 for making these comments about attempting to aquire Shalrie Joseph. They were also fined $20,000 and lost a 2009 pick to FC Dallas for illegally hiring a goalkeeping coach!

Seriously, what the heck is going on in the Real Salt Lake front office? They have a very strong fan base by MLS standards, but how long will they continue to support a substandard team run by incompetents? They appear to be in a rebuilding year, which is very funny considering they were never good in the first place. It's more of a dismantling year. Whoever thought Freddy Adu was ready to put an MLS team on his back and lead them to glory should have their head examined. His presence has only negated their only other creative source on the team, Medhi Ballouchy. Then, they traded away their only true scoring threat in Jeff Cunningham. Dave Ellinger was kicked upstairs, but does that mean he'll still be doing the drafting?

And we only manged a draw to them last Saturday? Dear Lord.

load of crap.

Seriously, how can RSL be fined for the Joseph comments when the Hopkins article merely said "sources at RSL said...".

Half of that Trib is BS.
