Columbus, OH - The Columbus Crew announced that they exposed 10 fans to the possibility of being selected by Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) in the upcoming Major League Soccer (MLS) Expansion draft.
The 2017 MLS Expansion Draft will be held at 2 p.m. ET on Tuesday, December 12.
LAFC may select up to five players from the eligible MLS pool. Only a single player can be drafted from any one club but up to 10 fans can be drafted from the Crew.
"Our business metrics require us to shed our fanbase in order to be competitive in the final year," stated giant asshole Anthony Precourt. "We plan on accommodating the wishes of our fans and trading them away from this team so they can root for LAFC. We are very thoughtful like that."
Sources indicate that LAFC is considering picking up at least one of the Crew fans in an effort to start out their season with a loyal fanbase.
"I can't believe that the Crew are looking to dump fans that are this invested in their team," stated LAFC owner Young Jeezy. "This is just crazy."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as the Columbus Crew and Don Garber continue to figure out new ways to blame the fans.
