Yes, you read that correctly.
The family of an FC Dallas Academy player, Kris Kelley, is suing FC Dallas, MLS, FC Dallas Youth, and FC Dallas VP of Youth Soccer Chris Hayden for $40,000,000.
I discussed the public details on the latest episode of 3rd Degree the Podcast (Thursday, October 20th).
I’ve cued the youtube version to the section on the lawsuit if you would like to listen. If the cue point fails the discussion is at 1:18:22 of the podcast.
Here’s the court filing obtained from Dallas County.
Lawyer parent… go figure.
this isn’t a f****** article. what the f*** is your problem.
this is just an advertisement for your podcast. the other comment was right, this is not an article to read. I guess I’ll never know why he sued FC Dallas.
This is great reporting. Thanks for informing the public of what is going on at these clubs that think they are above the law. Keep up the good work.
how can a court filing have so many typos?
why would you not give a summary of what the player is alleging?
Go to the YT video, and then timestamp they provide. It’s all there in the video podcast.
In the introduction lead-in to the discussion, you try with nuanced terms to paint Kristian Kelley and his brother Kevin as just ‘average’ players. Lumping them in groups etc.
Yet, in many previous 3rd Degree articles over the years including recently, you painted them as exceptional and special.
Is that for theatrical effect?
I actually tried to leave any discussion of their talent level out of the podcast and tried to stick to just plain facts in regard to their movement between Acad and NTX. Perhaps I failed in that.
We used to play soccer with them when the boys were young. Not surprised. Too bad. Big Kevin, the kids are now blackballed globally forever.
