Not too long after Real Salt Lake was unceremoniously dumped in its U.S. Open Cup tilt, coach Jason Kreis issued a near ultimatum, and a pair of long time veterans vented their frustrations at a dismal on-field effort.
"We will go back to the drawing board, and we'll make sure that everybody on my squad right now recognizes that there is only one way to play here, and that's to give your best, and if you're not going to, you need to stand up and move aside," Kreis said. "The coaching staff is waiting for me as well as the trainers. We are going to look at the next 2 !1/2 weeks. I've said this once before in my coaching career and I'll say it now ... I would not want to be a player under me right now."
