FC Dallas winger Brek Shea is not having a good few days. Three days after MLS suspended the young winger for three games, Shea doesn’t see “Shea” on the latest U.S. national team roster. All this while his MLS club is winless over its last seven.
So the bummer factor in Shea’s world is rising like summer temperatures in Arizona.
At least Shea is taking commendable action. Today, on a periodic blog he writes for Goal.com, the FC Dallas winger apologized to supporters for being a nincompoop and getting suspended at a time of team need.
First of all, I want to apologize to all FC Dallas and Major League Soccer fans for my actions that resulted in a three-game suspension.
I regret what I did and I’ve learned from it. It sucks to be suspended for three games. It’s not just missing the games, it’s letting your teammates and the organization down.”
From there, Shea goes on to answer fan questions sent from Twitter.
