Atul Khosla addresses 'The Editorial'

+

If you've been waiting 18 months for a mealy-mouthed, "mistakes were made" apology from the Fire front office for The Editorial, YOU ARE IN LUCK! Here's two-plus minutes of Fire COO Atul Khosla attempting to walk back from The Editorial, which was quietly dropped from the Fire's website in the fall, more than a year after it first appeared. As Khosla mentions in the video, the Editorial was picked up (read: mocked roundly) by larger sites such as Deadspin. Apparently 18 months is just enough time to realize that castigating your most passionate fans for daring to demand excellence is not good business, and two minutes of diffidently mumbling 'it didn't turn out the way we'd hoped' pays for defiantly defending the thing repeatedly over the year-plus it was still on the club's site. If this whole thing is gobbledygook to you, you can catch up by reading the original editorial (preserved here on the Section 8 boards), our response, and Deadspin's hilarious takedown.

The Milkman delivers ... in HIS NEW LAMBORGHINI

Sean Johnson won a series of races sponsored by Continental Tire, besting former Chivas USA 'keeper Dan Kennedy in the final of the 'Whatcha Got, MLS' competition. Winning's nice, but the prize is even nicer - the Milkman gets the use of the Lamborghini he drove in the contest for a year! No word, as yet, if he's offered to pave the remaining parking lots at Toyota Park to spare his new baby exposure to gravel, dust and mud.

A lot of questionable stuff said here. Most notably that Patrick Nyarko might be out of a job if he doesn't start scoring more goals and living up to his potential. Not sure they know what they're talking about.
