Listen to me nowwww, unt hear me layt-uh.

I'm going to assume this closes the case and we need not discuss any more scandalous accusations. Ja? Wunderbar. What were some of the issues you felt were holding you back from being fully committed?
Timothy Chandler : “I was a young player trying to get settled into my club team and wasn’t sure about the long travel and everything that goes into being a part of this National Team. My coaches didn’t like the idea, so I think even I felt some pressure. I’ve had a chance to get settled in with the club and also have grown up a lot. I know what I want to do.” Given what has transpired in the last two years, there may be some people who are skeptical of your commitment to the U.S. team at this point?

TC: “I understand that a lot of people in the USA may be unsure because they think I have said [I’m committed] in the past. All I can say is that I am clear in my head about the commitment moving forward. This was about me being ready to accept the responsibility of being a part of the National Team and everything that goes with it, and now I am ready. I hope I will get chances in the future. I am in 1,000 percent.”

Pfft. Facts can't get in the way of our endlessly senseless pontification. He has to prove himself to ME, goddamnit.
