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.


ussoccer.com: 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.”

ussoccer.com: 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.
