    yeahhhhright. Short of his wife telling a complete lie or false identifying her husband as the one who assaulted her. Can't really imagine him walking the concourse and shaking hands with families after this.. it should be the end of him at FCD, and I would be sick if its not. I'm sure there's details coming with this one tho..

    What's the other side to the story, "She was gonna beat me up so I suffocated her until she passed out?" Jesus, Doug. I don't wanna jump to conclusions, but I can't see how there's any other part of this story that could make his behavior excusable.

    Frankly, I am willing to wait and hear both sides of the story... personally from a media standpoint I am shocked that it took FOUR days for this to hit the wires... MLS FO had to have known about it and didn't release it themselves... Really poor PR management from both the FCD FO and MLS FO. MLS really needs to hire a crisis management professional. Can anyone imagine the CEO of any other sports league being accused of such a thing, or something even lessor (like DWI) and it not hitting the wires before he's released on bond? No way.

    it will go like this...."This is a personal matter and we'll let the authorities run their course. We respect the privacy and blah, blah, blah" There is nothing for the league to do. There is nothing that MLS should spin, cover, attract or detract from the story. Quinn will be sacked and that is that.

    unless clarkH makes a pre-emptive strike, belo will determine quinn's fate. the long-tenured names at the DaMN (Gosselin, Cowlishaw, Sherrington, Horn, etc.) still refer to the "4 major professional sports", and although i don't know this for a fact i have grown to suspect that hsg pays for steve hunt (the freelance writer) to write the white noise that passes for the dmf coverage that's printed in the DaMN.

    with respect to wfaa, we all know hansen hates soccer, but it's football season, and they may decide this isn't worth their time. seriously. more shoes will have to drop for them to get stuck in.

    all of this of course assumes no pre-emptive strike from clarkH.

    but you have to ask yourself, if the intent was not to cover it up, then shouldn't the pre-emptive strike already occurred?

    did clarkH not know until yesterday? really?

    When you speculate in this manner you really harm your own credibility.
    I can personally attest that this isn't remotely true. Shame on you Wade.
    Barega repped this.

    my credibility is your strawman, peter. let me thank you for your concern regarding my credibility.

    so belo pays for steve hunt to write articles. cool. they aren't getting much value for their money, but whatever. take the argument to the next step. why does your employer continue to refer to the "4 major professional sports" and have the weekly wednesday column (which is fantastic by the way) written by committee? why does your employer use a freelance writer and not an actual employee to cover the dmf?

    back to the topic at hand. pending a pre-emptive strike, pay close attention to BELO, the DaMN online, and WFAA at noon and 5.

    There doesn't appear to be a good outcome for DQ, so the Hunts should send him packing. Hopefully the next news story reads former CEO of FC Dallas........

    Terrible timing for the team, things starting to look up on the sponsorship/marketing end, big (relative) increases on the season ticket holder and average attendance sides.

    Not sure how you can survive from this, the details are pretty damn brutal.

    That's easy Wade: because soccer as a sport doesn't generate subscribers or viewers to the paper in any real numbers to justify paying someone full time to do it. I promise you, if it did, they would hire someone to do it. I know you think 95% of DFW households all pine over soccer news, but it just ain't the truth my friend.

    You can speculate all you want and make it in an "Area51" type conspiracy, but the idea that DMN didn't post a story about it because BELO/HSG worked together to not write about it, is, frankly, offensive..

    Oh, and BTW, it is has been on the front page of dallasnews.com all morning since 10am and is being written and updated by Wilonski himself.

    In a league where a player (Marc Burch, Seattle) gets suspended for 3 games for calling another player by a sexual slur, Quinn is done.

    You then have the counter examples of multiple players being accused (ultimately nothing really came of them I don't think) and they weren't done... I think he's done either way due to the public, face to face nature of his job (sales, business deals, etc), more so then some fear of the league being over bearing on potentially bad press moments...
