So what I'm seeing is this: 1) Just a couple weeks ago Crew was six points clear of F*re and coasting on a feel-good streak. Today, we're ONE point ahead and holding onto the last playoff spot by our fingernails. 2) Next week it appears that our starting center backs will be Ezra Hendrickson and Rusty Pierce. Frightening. 3) Andy Herron, even when not being offered as a human sacrifice to the gods of community relations, is not starting and not scoring. 4) Alejandro Moreno is starting, and is not scoring. 5) If Kei Kamara and Jason Garey are pushed any farther down the bench, they'll be sitting in 141. 6) Schelotto is getting his ass kicked by every punk in the league and the referees aren't doing diddly about it. The word around the league, apparently, is to just knock the guy down. 7) Even when he's not just trying to stay upright, Schelotto is wasted because he just hasn't got a target. Of any kind. Ever. 8) As you look around the league, nobody is standing still. Dullass, F*re, even that pathetic bunch at RSL are bringing people in. The bottom line, it seems to me, is that this team cannot hope to go anywhere at the moment. And the team as an entity cannot survive many more disastrous seasons. Has anyone in MLS ever missed the playoffs three seasons in a row before? If HSG gives a crap, and is not just looking for a reason to leave town, then they need to give McCullers the money it will take to bring in a player or two. Right now. While we're on the subject, do we even have an owner these days? Is Clark Hunt even paying attention? Is he sitting there in his Caribbean beach house and counting his money? We need to hear something like a long-term committment from Clark Hunt. We need the FO to do something creative and find an impact player to give this outfit some momentum. We're in dire straits, and the only guy talking is Will Hesmer. Does the FO and HSG have nothing whatever to say to the fans? Do they think the fans don't deserve some encouraging words? It seems to me at this point that to the management and ownership, Crew fans are just an annoyance, noise to be handled, and I'm sick of it. The fat man is blowing it here. He can go back to his wife and his home in California any time and never look back. Except for his pride, who cares? He'll be fine. The rest of us are stuck with this mess, and it's time someone stood up, accepted some responsibility and took some positive action. Right now, there aren't many differences between the way this club is being run and that disaster in Salt Lake. And they don't even HAVE a front office. What is being done, besides encouraging everyone to play hard and complaining about tough breaks and bad luck, to turn this around? We deserve some answers.
