Mravec and Teammates Walk Out on Seattle Impact - Former SKC Wizards Update

For those that haven't been following my Twitter feed, you've missed a lot of news regarding indoor soccer, specifically the Seattle Impact, an expansion team in the new MASL, which the Missouri Comets are also part of. The TL;DR version of the story is basically that their owner, Dion Earl is a part of a lawsuit against him, the team, and the league for sexual assault. Really the story as a whole is like bad TV, if you haven't read up on it, just read this interview he did with Deadspin, it's just crazy.

Anyway, I bring that up, because former KC draft pick Michal Mravec had signed to play with the Impact this season. His stint with the Impact though lasted just one game as he and 22 teammates walked out on the club because of Earl's conduct. Earl referred to it as a "mutiny." The Impact found more players that have allowed them to continue playing at this time.

In other indoor soccer news, one former player has replaced another on the roster for the St. Louis Ambush. For the second year in a row, Jamar Beasley is out in St. Louis. This year he at least played one game for the Ambush before leaving. Replacing him on the Ambush roster is KC's 2014 second round pick, Adnan Gabeljic. Gabeljic had been without a club since being waived by the OKC Energy.

Here's the rest of this week's update.
