In a surprising move, Real Salt Lake has announced a major trade aimed at putting a winning team on the field. Said owner Dave Checketts “Being conservative just wasn’t working, so we decided to go out on a limb. I promise that you’ll see some winning soccer from here on out.”
Details of the trade are cloudy as terms are still being worked out, but several members of the team, the city of St. George Utah, the Virgin River Gorge, most of Zions National Park, and a 2nd or 3rd round pick will be to Argentina in return for the entire Boca Juniors side. The existing coaching staff is expected to be offered jobs coaching the RSL Reserves which will be turned into a PDL team and inheret most of the current starting roster, which should create a very competetive team in that league.
“I can’t wait to watch the new RSL play.” Said former starting mid-fielder Freddy Adu, “I’m sure they’ll make a smooth transition to the MLS.”
Not everyone is as optimistic, “It’s still RSL, they’ll find a way to lose for sure.” said one RSL fan who wishes to remain anonymous.
(Yeah, it’s a joke. Don’t read too much into it.)
