RIP Futsal Fred

One of my daily reads is The Offside Rules, a blog with the straight dope on all things MLS. We certainly don't link to TOR enough around here. We should.

Today, TOR posted a little link that suggests the Hunt Sports Group may be interested in selling a share of the Columbus Crew to the consortium that was trying to bring MLS to Las Vegas. That's all good and may bring more rumors of club movement, but it's the takedown in the comments that is absolutely priceless.

I don't want to steal too much TOR's thunder so I will only tease it a bit.

Anonymous posted:

MLS will not be in Columbus in ten years time. In fact, I'd be surprised if the Crew exist five years from now. It's just too small of a market to 1) help the league's footprint and 2) be profitable. Enjoy the Crew while you still can Ohio.

Then anonymously named Futsal Fred angrily piped up with comments about Anonymous being anonymous, not knowing what they are talking about, and generally being reactionary.

Anonymous then wiped the floor with Futsal Fred's and then spit on his carcass. Not to reveal too much, but Anon. had a clinical, textbook combination on FF for the TKO and then took him out with a dirty Street Fighter finishing move.

Check it out. It's pure Awesome.

Don't you love the way he ended by throwing out the Wu?

That was the best part. I couldn't believe it. It's like he was a surgeon at first, then at the end just broke out the machete like Ugueth Urbina and massacred him.

As the resident Crew fan I feel like I have to defend Mr. Fred....Ah, who the fuck am I kidding? Anonymous is right. The Crew are as good as gone. Not that the fine folks in Columbus will miss them.
