Stewart Gone From RSL

Jack Stewart, who is being promoted by MLS for Cosmopolitan magazine's Bachelor of the Year contest, is no longer in MLS. Well, technically he is still on Real Salt Lake's roster, but the third-year defender has essentially been let go by the club. He was apparently unhappy with his situation and wanted to leave, two sources tell me, and the club didn't want him around anymore. Stewart made 13 regular season appearances this year, including 12 starts. More details as they become available.

Glancing through the other Bachelors, I saw a Bobby Boswell look-alike, here:

Is he able to join another team at this stage? He's been a decent defender and there are plenty of teams making the playoff push who could use the help (RBNY)

Would be interesting to hear what exactly was making him unhappy...other than RSL's phenomenal suckiness.

3 brilliant posts filled with lively debate and intellectual conversation . . . then this.

Stewart cannot join another team this season (rosters were frozen in mid-September). I'm sure he will be formally released after the season and available in the expansion draft.

Is there another defender in this league as slow as Stewart?

Anyway, it would be interesting to see what the scoop is. More and more I'm starting to wondering if the entire RSL FO needs to be nuked and for things to start from scratch.

Only in Texas does a SOCCER SPECIFIC stadium have football lines. MLS should be ashamed of this.

The lines are there to help the refs mark off 10 yards...

The announcers just mentioned Spinal Tap, and didn't reference this blog. Plagiarists.

Brian Hall was head ref and Terry Vaughn was on the sideline for the Dallas match?

Bishop Ireton- Mr. Montana? Yikes. Agreed about the California dude, too.

The school district in Frisco kicked in roughly 25-30million to help build PHP. As a result, they get to hold HS Football and Soccer games there. Would you rather they still play in the Cotton Bowl?

I think someone at Cosmo likes Major League Soccer. I appreciate that.

maybe if some fans showed up in dallas they wouldn't have to pimp their field out to high school football to pay their bills.

They sure had a lot of leftover wigs to give to the ESPN crew. I guess they didn't reach the first 5,000 fans.

The school district kicked in $20-30M? How much to Frisco public school teachers make?

If Stewart's now gone from RSL, who takes over the mantle of "Worst Defender in MLS"?

Posted by: Kim | October 12, 2007 11:28 AM | Report abuse

Stewart is to blame for about 5 of our losses. He will not be missed, and we feel sorry for whomever decides to pick this "hottie" up.

These new MLS venues are not "Soccer Specific." People need to get that phrase out of their heads.

New MLS stadia are built to host soccer events, but they are still multi-use venues. These new stadiums that MLS teams play in need to host other events (beyond the 20-25 soccer matches a year) in order to be economically viable.

I can live with faded line markings from other sports. I really only have an issue if the field is in poor shape due to overuse (as was the HDC's problem with X-games activities).

Venues:
I was being facetious, as I am wont to do. I realize that they have to be multi-use stadiums to generate income, but soccer-specific is the MLS nomenclature. Part of the salesmanship was for fans to see games without the football lines.

For my tastes, the grid subtracts from the visual experience. Part of having a pure soccer pitch is to forget, if only for 90 minutes, that soccer is a second-tier sport in the US.

"He was apparently unhappy with his situation and wanted to leave"

That situation being that Jack Stewart was the worst defender in the league by a wide margin. I have no idea how that guy was able to hang on as long as he did. Must have been the same front office that made Besagno the first pick in the draft!
