Soccer Team Gives "Refund" After Epic 4-0 Beatdown

The Seattle Sounders got beat 4-0 by the LA Galaxy, prompting one of the players to suggest that fans deserve a refund and apology from the team. It seem the ownership agrees. Sort of. They’re offering a one game credit to season ticket holders as compensation for the crappy play. It’s not a refund exactly, but its almost one.

From the Seattle Times:

“We’re in this for the long haul. We need them (the fans) to be in it for the long haul,” said Adrian Hanauer, the team’s co-owner and general manager, at the Starfire Sports Complex.

“That wasn’t Sounders soccer. And it was quite frankly embarrassing, humiliating, and they don’t deserve that.”

“We don’t plan on giving people money back every time we have a bad game,” Hanauer said. “But as the owners of the club, we reserve the right to do whatever we think we need to do to treat our fans the way they’ve treated us.”

Hmm, sounds like a good idea to us. Which fans do you think deserve a refund?
