It would be interesting to find out who those several draft picks turned out to be.
The more that comes out about CJ (curt not sapong) the more it seems like he was a push over when it came to the league FO. Twellman and Kenny Cooper are the other two instances.
Looking at the wikipedia entry on the draft, based on the fact that we had the 2nd pick (and assuming no other trades), it was our second round pick, used on Rusty Pierce and our fourth, used on Adam Eyre.
So what do we mean by rejects? Are we looking for players who were released (rejected) who were;
terrible players who were also terrible people?
players who never played for us?
the best in KC blue?
the worst in KC blue?
With the names being thrown around I am really not sure what we are looking for here.
all of the above. People who will never be considered for KC Hall of Fame status. The more we paid them or the more they played, the higher the value of discontent.
So someone like Chris Brunt is what you're looking for?
I guess I've never actually hated someone for sucking, just felt sorry for them. It isn't really the player's fault the GM signed them to a contract disproportionate to their worth. Now if you think they were mailing it in, that's another story.
Who is the guy that we traded for from Dallas that 'retired' rather than coming here. I think we got Santel as a "past their expiration date" player as a parting gift later for that.
and Lalas has to be the captain of this team due to his 'retiring' only to be 'discovered' by LA the next season.
Yep, just saw Pez' post earlier. That's the guy.
I would qualify people that either sucked or dissed KC or the team in someway on their way out. (Ex. Lalas, Morsink)
Agreed. Saying ‘all of the above’ as ojsgillt did doesn’t clarify things much but, anyway, moving on. I’ll assume we are going with a starting 11 (with significant playing time) that we would not want back at the peak of their KC career due to poor play and/or attitude.
Here’s my team. Sure I have a lot of centerbacks but whatever.
Holbien, Gough, Lalas, T. Graham
Marinelli, Walsh, Morsink, C.Brown
If we are considering Brown a forward then replace him with F.Gomez.
Who was that eastern European player that played 45 minutes, was yanked at halftime and never saw the light of day? Vuk Rasovic maybe?
Yep that was him
