CHICAGO - Prominent soccer journalist Brent Adams stated unequivocally that he is not actually “Rose City Til I Die” despite using the RCTID hashtag to disseminate Timbers team information over the weekend.
“I’m not and frankly I resent the implication that I am not impartial,” stated Adams to his 20,000 Twitter followers. “I just don’t understand why THAT has to be the hashtag.”
Adams also stated for the record that he is additionally not “Eternal Blue Forever Green, Vamos Orlando, City Til I Die, For The City, Forever Orange, Save The Crew, For Glory For City, Dallas Til I Die, No Other Club, Massive, or Real Salt Lake Til I Die.”
“Id love to pass my columns and information on the team to the general public without appearing to be partial,” stated Adams to The Nutmeg News. “However, these team hashtags make me just look like any other fan. I mean, honestly…. Doop? Join or Die? I’m just trying to let people know the injury status of a player or a transfer rumor. Now everyone thinks that I’m partial to their team every time I tweet out a story.”
The Nutmeg News spoke to Kansas City fan Henry Spooner who stated, “No, no one actually thinks that Brent Adams is a Sporting Kansas City fan. Unless that makes him mad, then yes… we ALL think he is a SKC fan.”
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Adams attempts to balance the need for clicks and eyeballs on his stories versus the disgust he feels tweeting things using team and supporter group hashtags.
