Jason Kreis Explains Move to NYCFC

Jason Kreis has been one of my favorite post-match interviews for some time now. He’s thoughtful, patient, actually tries to answer questions without using cliches or coachisms. You have to admire what he’s been able to accomplish with Real Salt Lake. Salt Lake City has never had a championship team in professional sports. College basketball and the Utah Jazz have had championship caliber teams, but only Jason Kreis has lifted a banner and a trophy for a team in Utah.

This move has been coming for a long time. Worst kept secret in MLS in 2013 was that Jason Kreis was being recruited by NYCFC. It is surprising that the team held together with that rumor being bandied about. I think it is a credit to the strength in the organization that key pieces can be replaced with new ones and the team still performs.

Best of luck in New York Jason Kreis.

Howard Schultz On George Strombopolus

Howard Schultz On George Strombopolus

First of all there was a local ownership group ready to step up and buy the team. That is nothing more than revisionist history from Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz.

The part about maturity really got me at the end. This is the guy who got butt hurt when Gary Payton wouldn’t be buddies with him and would pout at games when his team wasn’t doing so well.

Howard Schultz is Ken Behring reborn. Howie, you are the worst sports owner in Seattle history.
