    He's had a pretty high profiled ... well traveled career already ...

    I felt they guy was nothing but potential while he was here ... and never fully had confidence in him.

    Adin Brown showed flashes, but then he had games like that exhibition game we played at the dog track a few years ago (the one where Matt Okoh scores the most meaningless hat trick in history), where he literally tripped over thin air and was out for weeks.

    The trade we made to get rid of him (what was it, Brown and Vermillion for Garlick, Kotschau and Pibe) was one of the finest trades the Rapids have ever made.

    But, sorry, Adin, I for one was glad to see you go.

    I think that Adin was put into a tough spot when he was drafted by the Rapids. As rookie sometimes it's hard to make that step, it's even harder when you are a keeper. I do agree that the trade that got rid of him was a great trade. It's too bad to see that he might be done in MLS due to his last head injury.

    Hated might be a strong word but in this case I didn't love him. As GoRapids said, he was nothing but potential while here and his numbers go along with that.

    I just remember seeing him against the Fire. Sitting behind him was like sitting behind an octopus. While the Fire likely won or tied, I was quite impressed with his reach and speed.

    I agree hate is awfully strong, but you could usually count on him to make one goof per game that would cost the Rapids.
