“Yo, welcome to Major League Soccer, Mark Bloom. I know you played a few games last year after Toronto got you from Atlanta, but you and I? We’ve never met. So just in case you’re unclear what you’re up against at this level, allow me to introduce you to the first division.
Clinton Drew Dempsey”
“Dear Mr. Dempsey,
We need to talk.
Major League Soccer Disciplinary Committee“
Toward the end of today’s first half in Seattle, Clint Dempsey had this little interaction with Toronto FC right back Mark Bloom. With his team already down 2-0, the Seattle attacker decided to take out his frustrations on the former Silverback.
The play went unpunished, but caught by NBCSN’s cameras, the contact may draw the attention of the league’s Disciplinary Committee. It certainly was noticed by Gifulmination.com, who captured Bloom’s misfortune.
