L.A. Galaxy's Robbie Keane Drops F-Bomb About Playing in Heat (Audio)
L.A. Galaxy captain Robbie Keane dropped the F-bomb during an interview yesterday following his team's tie game against the Chicago Fire in the Windy City where temperatures were in the 90s.
"I would love to know who makes these f-------- stupid decisions, to play a f------- game at 3 o'clock in the afternoon," Keane told reporters, noted The SportsBank.net (audio below). "Who wants to watch that crap? Do you? I don't want to watch that crap."
"Play the game at 8 o'clock," Keane added. "Why would you want to play at 3 o'clock in the afternoon on the hottest day of the year so far here in Chicago?
“We shouldn't have played the game, to be honest with you. It's like whoever makes these decisions, the MLS or whoever it is, they have never kicked a soccer ball in their whole life, make a decision to play a game on the hottest day of the year, 3 o'clock in the afternoon."
According to MLSSoccer.com, L.A. Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena stated, "This is not fair for the players. It's not good for the fans either. We shouldn't be playing this game at this time. That was a difficult, difficult game for the players to deal with.”
Landon Donovan, another L.A. galaxy player, added, “That’s the way the league is at times. There are games where it is ugly. You play during the day, it’s hot, the field is slow and that kind of stuff happens. You have to have the character and the resolve to find a way to get a result, and we did that today.”
