Colin Clark, Soccer Ally
I’m fairly confident I don’t need to recap what happened with Colin almost two months ago in Seattle, but if you need a refresher, you can read about it here.
Soon afterward he sent us this tweet:

I have yet to add Colin to the list. It was too soon. It seemed like a knee-jerk reaction. Like a celebrity immediately giving a donation to the Anti-Defamation League right after making an anti-Semitic comment or the NAACP after a racist one to improve their image.
Time has passed. Colin and I have had a few conversations since then. We’ve talked about what happened. We’ve talked about what he’s done since the incident. And we’ve talked about what he hopes and plans to do, going far beyond anything officially required of him by Major League Soccer. And through our conversations I can see he is sincere about all this, and sincerely sorry.
Meeting him this weekend and speaking with him more and truly getting to know him cemented this. We hope to record an interview soon so you can hear from him as I have, as well as answer any questions you might have.
Until then, I am comfortable saying this. Colin Clark is a Soccer Ally.
