    Is he on a bike?

  2. the special one says:

    This guy lied to the tfc fans saying that he didn’t want to leave. I hope the New York fans can put up with all your BS. Good Luck MeRo.

  3. chris says:

    i think he will do just fine playing for a good orginization.

  4. JCC says:

    MLSE is one of the worst sports organizations in North America, Just ask a Leafs and Raptors fan. DeRo left a ship that was going nowhere. Good for him.

  5. bob says:

    Sounds llike he didn’t want to leave, but he also wanted to get paid. Hence he had to leave. Plus the organization is a joke.

  6. Besides (ASG) “Atlanta Spirit Group”. It sucks to be a Hawks or Thrashers fan because of these clowns. ask anyone else here from Atlanta and they will tell you the same thing.

  7. Scott A says:

    He comes from the Christopher Sullivan school of pronunciation.

  8. chupacabra says:

    Yeah, it’s really difficult to survive in Toronto on +$400,000/year.

    It’s really hard to feel sympathy for someone who basically an entertainer making a generous six-figure salary when people who perform services that are truly valuable to society are struggling to keep their jobs.

  9. chupacabra says:

    And the dogsbutt school of ugly.

  10. Will-SBI says:

    Is DeRo’s family from the Caribbean? I hear an accent.

  11. inkedAG says:

    I was trying to figure the accent out too. :)

    I like the guy’s honesty and I hope he does well. I hope he can help the team play better.

  12. None says:

    DeRo is annoying. His problems at TFC were all related to previous management and verbal “promises” that were made to him.

    People can talk bad about TFC but what they did was 100% correct. No player is bigger than the club, even if you are the hometown captain.

  13. John says:

    His familiy is from Guyana in South Anerica.

  14. Brent McD says:

    I used to like DeRo but agree he is a me-first, team-second player. He dogged it his last year in Houston, basically demanding a trade to his hometown club. And we all saw how that worked out. Maybe now that he’s finally getting his money, he’ll tear it up….?

  15. dussy says:

    The guy is one of the best players MLS has ever had. It is an honor to have him on my MLS team (Houston Dynamo). So what if he wants to get paid? He earned it. Truly a special player.

    I haven’t had true belief in the Dynamo since he left. Once he left everything fell apart. Is it a coincidence we won our last championship with him? I think not.

  16. Jeff Awesome says:

    Every sport need villains. Red Bull really are doing their best to become the MLS version of the Yankees.

  17. abc says:

    That’s less than the league minimum in Major League Baseball, for a guy who is one of the better players in MLS. Obviously MLS is not MLB in terms of salaries but it doesn’t have to be for your point, so go complain about how Jose Bautista doesn’t need millions of dollars to survive in Toronto.

  18. Nic D "The Texas 2 Stepper" says:

    I have felt the same way! Saw him play live against FC Dallas 96 … instant fan .. hence the “2 stepper” tagline.

  19. Nic D "The Texas 2 Stepper" says:

    And I like it!

  20. Toronto FC: “Rebuilding since Day One”.

  21. jts says:

    It is generally a short career (10 years or less), so he needs to get what the market will bear in that time period and save and invest, because his next job (coach? insurance salesman) is going to likely pay far less.

  22. yankiboy says:

    Bro, you don’t have to feel sympathy for him.

    You know that once entertainers get a certain level are always going to make more than the local elementary teacher or the the local pediatric clinic assistant. That’s just the reality of the market place.

    Star in a major release movie–even a bad one–you’re usually going to get paid. Save some lives treatuing the sick on the front lines when a plague breaks out…

    All he wants is his market value. I’m not a TFC fan and I think the “write the check goal celebration was tacky” but in the end, it’s a business.

    If he doesn’t get the compensation that he wanted then the PR hit that he took with his some countrymen, especially some of the TFC fans–it might not end up being worth it in the long run.

    We’ll see how things play out.

  23. Colin says:

    Nope. Slow-motion dougie.

  24. Graham Fox says:

    Name one futballer who doesn’t lie about team loyalty.

  25. MLS Original says:

    TC is a joke. Their fans were so cocky & full of “proper footy culture” when they joined the league. No, they are in their 3rd or 4th rebuilding plan and fans are starting to see what it feels like once the initial euphoria passes. I hope the same thing hapens to those annoying Seattle fans.

  26. Charles says:

    TFC is still selling out ( although there are always empty seats )

    Seattle is still strong after 2+ seasons of not being able to find a finisher.

    Sorry you are so bitter towards full stadiums. I hope you find happiness with whoever you root for.

    ps. please show me one example of annoying Seattle fans.
