"Everyone has to make their own decisions as they relate to those things. For me, if my team's in a competition I'm going to go to the game with them, no matter what the team is that I send down. ... For me, not traveling with the team I think would be disrespectful to the competition that you're competing in and to the opponent that you're playing."Sigi Schmid, Seattle Sounders FC head coach
Saw this quote from Sigi Schmid in regards to Colorado Rapids manager Gary Smith staying at home this past week for the Rapids CCL trip to Honduras. Can’t say I disagree with this either. Even though the Rapids won their game, the head coach should have made the trip. It will be interesting to see if any excuse from Smith finally comes out this weekend.
