You’re a busy owner of a successful MLS club. You don’t have time for things like “hitting the right button”. So just send that DM out publicly, and delete it a few seconds later. It’s cool. It’s not like you just implied Eric Wynalda was mentally insane or anything.
Congratulations, Merritt Paulson! Your Twitter skills and inadvertently open trash talk have earned you the title of OWFSS Long Tan Of The Week, presented for excellence in the field of American soccer.
