They are brawling in Texas! FCD players … with each other, that is (video)

FRISCO, Texas – Soon enough, the brothers who run Hunt Sports Group, Dan and Clark Hunt, will convene to begin sorting through candidates to replace Schellas Hyndman. Hyndman resigned this week, effective at season’s end.

One of the first tasks for the new boss will be to get the locker room right. Clearly, things aren’t right.

Even if you accept that locker room chemistry had nothing to do with the team’s dreadful collapse through the summer – from top point producer in the league in May to out of the playoffs with two games remaining – then it was all there to see on a sunny Saturday afternoon in Texas.

David Ferreira, the league’s MVP three years ago as FC Dallas went to the MLS Cup, final, and Brazilian midfielder Jackson had to be separated as the teams went into the tunnel at halftime.

Ferreira has become a polarizing figure around Toyota Stadium, still playing regularly despite significantly decreased mobility and, if we’re honest, not much effectiveness.

Above are the bizarre scenes from Toyota Stadium … in a match, don’t forget, that FC Dallas actually won!

    That Jackson guy sure likes to fight…

    I hate to say this about our MVP, but at this point I’d rather keep Jackson than Ferreira.

    FCD fans, I don’t see a new coach keeping loyalty with Ferreira. He is a liability at this point, particularly given his salary.

    Any ideas as to what triggered the confrontation?

    And another fail for MLS refereeing – Jackson’s attempted punch should be an automatic red card. Yes, he got pulled by his coach at halftime, but that’s no excuse for the referee not doing his job.
