Proshop debacle: Seagals on display.

Like most of you, I'm assuming, I was at the game against the Whitecaps last night, and I made a point of checking out the proshop, now that it has finished being renovated. I was angling for an Evans shale, turns out they had nothing but smalls. However, I'm really here to talk about easily the most disappointing thing I've ever seen from the Sounders organization: the decision to have some members of the Seagals standing in 2nd floor display windows in a display disturbingly reminiscent of prostitutes in a number of foreign countries. I don't want to argue the value of cheerleaders, or even the merits of prostitution, but I do want to express my feelings that I was let down by the organization. It made me extremely uncomfortable and I was not alone. The Sounders should be more concerned with how their actions are viewed by everyone who attends the game and I'm talking men and women. It was simply not cool, not at all. I've been looking forward to the first time I could take my daughter to a Sounders game and this gave me pause, pause I don't want to have. I love the Sounders but there is no need for this kind of thing at the games. I'm calling my rep on Monday to express my displeasure and I urge all of you to do the same if you feel the same. If anyone here is on the Alliance council, I'd appreciate them forwarding that opinion to the team at the next meeting as well. We can be a classier organization than that. Have the cheerleaders there, but don't put them up on display like that, it's offensive and not just to women, it's offensive to all of us.
