Dwayne de Rosario quits Toronto Football ClubApril 2, 2011 at 5:03 am | Posted in Whitecaps Season 2011 | Leave a comment
You can’t blame De Rosario for being a bit peeved in recent years at TFC. He has been banging plenty of goals in for a team which was going nowhere. To add insult to injury, players around him such as Mista and de Guzman were getting paid a lot more than he was while they played crap football.
I briefly fantasized about the Vancouver Whitecaps signing him. Before the image of de Rosario in a Whitecaps shirt could make its way into my mind however, he had already signed for the New York Red Bulls. Damn! We really could have used him. He is a proven MLS winner with a number of MLS championships under his belt.
True, he is getting a bit older, but he has experience and knows how to score goals in this league. I suppose the pull of living in the Big Apple was too strong. I wonder if we were even in with a chance?
Who even knows how a trade works in the single entity system that the MLS works under?
