Alex D Posted January 15, 2012 Share Posted January 15, 2012 As a Canada and TFC fan I find this disappointing. Disappointing because it's not like their development would have been stunted if they stayed at home, it's not 1998 anymore. Even more disappointing that TFC let them go. What the hell is the point of an academy if you're going to sell the products before you get any use out of them? That's like buying a car, driving it off the lot, and putting it back up for sale. I would have rather seen these two kids graduate from the academy and establish themselves in MLS before making the move. All of this being said, I don't know the specific's of the situation. I don't know what, if anything, TFC received in compensation, or if they had any rights at all to stop them from leaving. But it's all very frustrating. From the kids point of view, moving to London to take a shot at the Premier League must be a dream come true. I wish them all of the best and to have great careers.
