LIKE IT OR NOT, SPORTING KC DID THE RIGHT THING BY DUMPING SHAMED LIVESTRONG!!!



Lance Armstrong and his charity are now the subject of shame and scorn but there's a bright spot in all of this . . .

WHEN NO OTHER SIGNIFICANT SPORTS NEWSIE OR PUNDIT IN KANSAS CITY DARED SPEAK UP . . . THE TKC BLOG COMMUNITY CALLED OUT LANCE ARMSTRONG'S SHAMEFUL LEGACY AND STOOD AGAINST NAMING RIGHTS HYPOCRISY!!!

And for this fact I've awarded denizens of this blog our own yellow jersey . . .



Seriously, there were more than a few of you urging us on in this debate and supplying a steady helping of links and perspective . . . Congrats to all of you who kept the fire and saw this thing through till the end.

Livestrong, Sporting KC divorce already ugly

Bottom Line Communications Offers Some Valuable Media Perspective

The complex will also now be called ‘Sporting Park’, which also takes effect immediately, CEO Robb Heineman said.

In the end, this controversy revealed the cowardly nature of Kansas City media along with an overall resistance to change among cowtown residents.

As the decision grew more imminent it was clear that fanboys and few misguided folks were willing to throw cancer victims under the bus in order to defend a fallen idol. Thankfully, Kansas City's soccer team was able to see through the hypocritical arguments, realize that neither taxpayer cash nor the goodwill of their fanbase should be spent to rehab Armstrong's image and ultimately SPORTING KC DID THE RIGHT THING.

As the (somewhat fearless) leader of the TKC Blog Community I want to thank and congratulate Sporting KC and I was thinking that I might even watch a game or two next season.

KC Narcoleptic?

Tell me TKC, how is it that you are endorsing a pro-sports organization refusing to honor their commitment and donation to a charitable organization that supports people with cancer?

How is that the right thing?

Would you take this stance if it was the chiefs or the royals refusing to pay an "urban core" tragedy?

I didn't think so.

If you want to talk about hypocrites. Just look in the mirror.

You are so much worse than Lance Armstrong TKC.

No wonder you blog all the time. It's probably because you can't sleep at night.

I think you're overlooking that Lance is the one who cheated cancer victims and not anybody else.

I support TKC. He has been dead-to-rights on this issue the whole time.

Lance is the Bernie Madoff of cycling. He fucked people, some in ways that compensation won't even repair. Livestrong was complicit in the cover up and ongoing charade. Rembrandt couldn't paint SKC as the bad guys in this deal. FUCK Lance and Livestrong. Hopefully the boys in the penn will get their chance to drill Lance's bunghole in the future.

The key line to the article is this:
"In an ESPN report published Tuesday, a Livestrong official claimed that the MLS club had only paid $250,000 of the $1 million it owed the foundation in 2012"
Rob Heineman is a total douchebag, and he's hopping off the bandwagon so he doesn't have to pay his bills. So run your victory lap, Tony, but you ain't the reason they're changing the name. Greed beats charity is the headline of this story.

Sporting was dumped. FYI.

Can someone make some news other then this nameless sporting park please.

Thanks

Yep, nothing good happens in KC that does not originate with TKC. Including photo posts of young local women that will have to endure sick comments from the blog trolls which Tony gleefully embraces. Which one is next Oh Great One?

Shit if I had a bank account in rough proportion to the TKC ego, I sure as shit would not be working.

It's January, cold, grey, nothings happening, no ones doing anything, welcome to Jackass Sporting Park.

If Sporting was really the one dumped, it's because they don't pay their fucking bills to the charity they committed to. I'm glad those worthless fuckers moved to Kansas.

Lance Armstrong is a piece of shit. If you read how the guy vilified and tried to bury his critics, that in the end were totally right, you'd be sick. I hope he never competes in so much as rock paper scissors ever again.
