"Emotional as well. Went to the sideline. You know, spoke with feel a little bit and we made the decision that we're not going to continue until something was done with that player. And if nothing was done, then we weren't going to continue. I think Phil spoke with the opposing coach. When they decided to take the player off, so that's what happened. Taxi fun test has posted this on Instagram. He said, I did not use the word. I'm being accused of using that despicable racial slur is one I denounce and did not use. We had a hot discussion on the field, but I have not racially abused anyone. I firmly reject racism in any form. It is despicable. I have many friends from many cultures. I always respect the culture, religion, and skin color of each person. I am therefore very upset by this accusation and sudden to be falsely accused. Sebastian Salazar is now joining us to discuss the incident further. Thanks for being with us. What's the latest on the whole situation? And as a D.C. United fan, how do you feel about it all? Well, MLS will investigate the league saying in a statement they have zero tolerance for this kind of thing, which you would expect. There is some precedent here, as far as this is concerned in Major League Soccer a year ago, there was an incident with Diego Chara Portland timbers player who was allegedly racially abused by Minnesota United player Franco Fraga pana in that case MLS investigated they couldn't corroborate what was said on the field and so there was no suspension, but according to what we just heard there from not just Deandre yedlin, but Phil Neville himself. It sounds like there's going to be plenty of people that can corroborate what was said or what wasn't said on this field. So I'd be expecting a big suspension. Obviously as a D.C. United fan, it's an incredible disappointment. I hope the league and the club will do their due diligence, look through what happened here, but if they can confirm these allegations, it's just another dark cloud hanging over this team. It's been a brutal season and taxi fun to us was one of the bright spots in that brutal season. He was a guy who came in midway through the campaign, got off to a great start as a DP, but obviously I think as a fan anyway, it's going to be really hard to root for this player if these allegations are corroborated. So you obviously you've alluded to what you think is going to happen there, said, what do you expect to happen next? What are the next steps? Well, MLS will do their investigation. Then I think it's just a matter of if they can corroborate it, which again, it sounds like what we're hearing from the inter Miami side at least. They will be able to. It's a matter of how long will that suspension be? I'm trying to think of kind of comparables. We saw Sebastian legit get just a two game suspension for a homophobic slur that he was caught using. But we've also seen cases like deloy Hansen, the owner for rail saw Lake, who eventually lost his team over allegations of racism. So there's a lot of gray area there for what MLS could do here. I'll tell you this. D.C. United has two games left in their regular season. I can't imagine that we will see taxi playing for D.C. united again. This season, again, that's if these allegations are corroborated by Major League Soccer. And I would be very surprised if he starts next season. This would probably be a very lengthy suspension, one that lasts into the next campaign for D.C. United. And something we saw there as well Shaka was that the players and the coaches have taken things into their own hands there and saying that we're not going to continue if he continues on the pitch. And I thought that was a sensible approach by the players and to the service point as much as you expect MLS will have their investigation. I despite what tax advantage may be seeing on social media. I'm not sure how he gets away with this. Given that other players from inter Miami corroborated, what was said or allegedly said, given the fact that both marriages came together on the sidelines and he was substituted, the referees couldn't take any further action because they hadn't heard it themselves. But as far as president gauze, we are two weeks short of two years to the D, junior Fleming, but playing in the USL for Phoenix rising was accused of using a hobo for mcslug against Colin Martin. Donovan was in charge of San Diego loyal at the time. And they refused to come back on the pitch. They forfeited the game, but he stood by his player who said that that junior Fleming had user a homophobic slur against him. Junior Fleming was suspended 6 games. So at the very least, that is where that is your precedent. To semi's point, we will not. Be seeing him again this season, two games, and we won't see him for the first, as I say. At the very least, first four or 5 games of next season either. Fantastic has that to look forward to despite what he may be claiming. The league have also said their own mark. There are zero zero tolerance policy league and we expect them to act as such. Because that's what we are dealing with these days as well. Players can make a statement themselves. They can push that pressure to it, and that's always been a good thing to say. Thanks so much for being with us. We'll keep everybody up to date with what happens

"Road game of this window and then a week from this coming wednesday folks. They will be back home in columbus not against the not against the mexican national team but rather against costa rica Mark i think pretty solidly should probably expectations given hopefully some lessons learned from gregg. Berhalter in players should be a win. A draw and a win in that order on jamaica has not looked good to start off the window. Obviously it'll be tough for the united states. Given the english bass players will not be allowed by their clubs to travel to panama. because panama's on one of those red list so thus for them to return the england they would have to they would have to go to that country quarantine for ten days and then coming back to england. They'd have to quarantine for another ten days on and those clubs aren't having that and then playing against a decent costa rica team but against you know a You know a starting the history of of hopefully what will be us mnt success at lower dot com field with hopefully be a raucous crowd in a us leaning crowd against costa rica. That are very veteran team. Mark but increasingly group. That's trying to bridge the gap between generations on like the. Us has been able to last thing that'll say on this one mark weston mckennie back in so clearly whatever he did do to break violations even though we haven't gotten official public statement from somebody on the record within the federation about what exactly happened. There's a number of reports out there. Folks you can go. Listen and read them if you really want to Apparently west mckinney has repented for his sins and his back in with the camp so he and his childhood friend counter cost potentially will be playing alongside each other health through through games. Mark your thoughts on this window. Expectations and goals for the yanks. It's easy to look past. I think you said it really will But it's easy to look past jamaica. They just have not been very good. But you know remember. Their goalkeeper is audrey blake They have all this powell defense and kemar lawrence who he's been playing as a central defender o.'neil fisher for ela galaxy And then you know in their attack. They've got Darren mattocks who is playing for phoenix. Rising he hasn't. I don't think he's actually played a bunch. Junior fleming's corey. Burke is hurt and then a couple of other players who are kind of like andre gray for qpr who Couple of years ago was a really exceptional player. There's guys here you know the you know it's easy to pass them. But but i think they're a decent a decent enough squad and considering that the us has been sputtering A little bit in their first set of games I wouldn't necessarily sleep on them. You know this is the us in in qualifications and the reputation from their past cycle still haunts them as was clear in the last window. I'm not super bid. Angsty i think the thing that i said i wrote in a couple of months ago. was about both the nations cup nations cup nations cup. I can never remember. I can't keep leaks cup. A nations cup a nations league all square it confuses. My brain The gold cup. The the us winning those two Trophies didn't mean a lot to me because no one in america is going to pay attention to any of that stuff until they qualify for qatar. you know. They've got to get the job done and A little bit of news leaked out earlier today That john brooks is gonna be out with a back injury that leaves a hole in centreback. I think miles robinson was the presumptive obvious other centre-back that the us was gonna start..

"Be in that top year of them sacramento luvell etc. I look with them. Everybody else i would actually be like. Yeah i wi what what makes what the difference with unix louisville's louisville's mo has historically been to reach resign players. They they wanna keep guys in. India's also been like that. India levin has also been as assigned very talented players onto them but phoenix was capable two years ago of having one of the best strikers in the league one of the best midfielders. The league guys who were like fringy analysts possibilities Solomon asante junior fleming's and i was like. Oh these guys are fantastic. You know they've proven themselves. They scored a ton of goals in a ton of says. They're definitely gonna move onto a bigger league even if that bigger league. Is you know a second division team in europe or something like that. Not phoenix resigned him. Inex- paid the money to eat them. you know you don't really see that because by comparison tyler pasher who played with Indy just went to mls this year. I think he's with nashville. This year. So you know like the. That's the difference is that phoenix is actual actually spending low end. Mls money on players. Only anybody else in the us ellas phoenix on. So let me let me make sure understanding this right marcus. I think this is instructive. 'cause i think the last time rapids fans were thinking about phoenix. Rising was when mike defiance went there from the from the rapids. So phoenix rising is. They have So where louisville. I feel like mark has been a team that just signs veteran. Ussl guys and just has that group you know that are just they're never going to make its amylase. That phone call is never going to happen and he has been opened assigning guys who eventually move on but they are they. They are picking up players who then have had options. Lower division options in europe had options in mls and then they will make coulter from a chance to win standpoint and from a money standpoint their teams who are players who are turning down other opportunities. Go or resign with inex- whereas the guys who won back to vacuous l. championships with louisville. Like the best thing that they're gonna get is the league minimum and a one year with a team option that they're probably going to get cut and they're not gonna play at all at the. Mls t i mean your question is is a critique. I think it's a legitimate one because but because us all contracts are completely opaque will never know the answer to that question so the players that matt's talking about louisville they may have to match point than resigned because they They know that it's not gonna get any better at another league team They feel like you know. Sixty five thousand for the year is the best they can do. Better might also be like what i set. Which is that those philly those Venus players are really getting decent size contracts Real almost mls level money. And so they're hanging onto him for that mark. Would you say in that that. This is a healthy environment for jeremy. Kelly grow in. If andrei rawls was going to be anywhere that at least this is a this is a place yes or no. Is this a healthy environment. Are you excited to see what this could mean in terms of both of these players growing and then being in a better position to help the rabbits winning twenty twenty two for german kelly. It's the best option i mean. I think jeremy kelly will almost certainly get time there. Even if he's not the best full-back on the roster he'll get a lot of opportunity to play for sure. I'm less certain about what it means for. Andrei rawls Although they're they're not real deep at goalkeeper They have two other players at goalkeeper. Landon carter who. I don't know much about anzac. Lou been Zac lubin does have a really nice background. he has he's the he's the presumptive starter for them Forty seven starts between two thousand eighteen and now And he even did a brief loan stint with the seattle sounders so he's easel legit. I second here goalkeeper Who is thirty one years old and likely to be helpful as it mentor to rawls. The other guy's name didn't ring a bell in any way shape or form so navy role slots right in there as the number two which would be fairly valuable but that being said. Us those need start. June matt and they're likely to play a right Some teams are playing in. Some games are happening in. May the official beginning start. Time was announced as like mid april but most of for teams first game. They gave the team wide. Latitude has to win the start and most of the team's pushed their start dates back as far as they could so i think the river islands first game is going to be may fifteenth and their season opener at home is june six and the reason that those dates are so late is because they wanted to wait until more and more and more people are vaccinated which makes it more and more and more likely that they get People turning revenue at the game. Because he wasn't making any money on television whereas mls is making at least some money on mark yes or no will. So let's we're gonna assume again keegan rosen. Starting right back in play. The overwhelming majority of games for the colorado rapids is sebastian and wilson fashion anderson. Be the player with the second most minutes at right back to colorado rapids this year. Who that is such an interesting question. No i think sebastian's it gets loaned out. I don't think he plays a minute. That's that's while we speculative. What do you think that if that happens. Mark i think do b. c. A do we see a reprise of courtney ford conservative right back that we saw twenty nine. I think is a really interesting question. One question that we got cut folks that we will get to on is the rapids. Six centrebacks. I think it's unlikely that were of them. Will get a regular run out and the likely and its unless grew more is extremely hurt. At which point you know that's probably an indication that this will be his final year playing professionally. Those fifth and sixth spot from the depth chart are probably going to be two of the three young players off trustee or any four. Who's now back from injury. And then michael edwards who he spoke to on the last podcast and so i wonder you know does. Is that guy. Happy only getting or hundred minutes bit are playing and is that six guy even getting minutes. And so i wonder mark. That was corny. Ford was okay with twenty nineteen. We this podcast were counted. The many failings of players at the right back position you know could or could we see the colorado rapids go to three at the back we saw. Egan rosen vary at times you one of those rights centrebacks when they've gone to three at the back end then to the rapids than just commit in terms of going forward standpoint you know is the sam vines become what alexander. Benjamin mendy have been from a formation in the tactic sample or liverpool manchester city. Where the fullback bombs or and then in possession the rapids goatee. Read the back to the point. Where having rosenbergs back backup. He were of a conservative outside back. And then when sam vines has gone you have stephen beta.
