    I don’t think Pomykol was making a Sargent versus Zardes argument, but it sounds a bit like that because he picked 28 as his older age in the what was suppose to be a generic comparison likely without even knowing Zardes was 28.

    When you start losing games, the weak among you will whine, attack others, and capitulate. The strong will worker harder and pull together. The allegation of a player revolt were made by SI's Brian Strauss before the World Cup. Not after. They were proven to be false. There are always players who disagree with the coach, and they usually get on with things anyway, because the game is bigger than the player. There were players who disagreed with Klinsmann, but they still got on with things. There was no player revolt.

    OK, so on 3rd Degree's twitter feed he posted this

    "IMO Pomykal isn't taking a shot at anyone in his quote about Sargent. I find Paxton to be a humble, gracious young man. Not at all snarky. I took it more as a general comment about supporting other young players that he might see as similar to himself."

    He has covered the team since year two and covers practices and games and talks to coaches and players all the time. The hug Berhalter gave him before going on seemed to show he didn't take it the way a lot of people are as a shot against him or Zardes.
     
    gogorath repped this.

    Who else could he have been talking about?

    I don't think he was talking about anybody specifically.

    It was just suppose to be a generic example of a generic older player to contrast against Sargent, but because Pax said 28 and Zardes happens to be 28 then everybody assumed he was calling about Zardes and his current league during his first camp, which makes no sense.

    Doubt he even knew Zardes was 28.

    General Egg knows that a solution to a Problem Like Paxton Pomykal is to make sure that he is made to disappear somewhere in the trenches of some obscure front. I hope Paxton likes the grub in whatever place Nguyen, Feilhaber, and Cameron were sent to their perdition in years past.
