Spartans Announce Final Pre-Draft Roster Addition
TODAY, the Chairman announced the signing of Danny Koevermans as its expansion round pick. The Chairman had the following to say, "Danny is a top quality striker, and we expect him to compete for the golden boot this year. We think Danny's strength and clinical finishing ability will serve Spartans well as we seek to compete in our inaugural BSL season." Koevermans, who had 8 goals in 10 appearances last season, previously played in the Dutch Eredivisie for AZ and PSV. Upon hearing the news, many fans questioned whether the Chairman had a bias towards European and South American players. It was widely known that Spartans had been pursuing Mauro Rosales prior to his signing with Rose City. The Chairman reacted strongly, saying "We do not have any bias against American players and have several circled for the coming era. This league's future depends on developing and nurturing American talent. I think today's signing of Brek Shea by KC shows that to be true." Meanwhile, the supporters remain on edge regarding the lack of news regarding Luke Rodgers visa. Rodgers, who has earned a reputation as one of the bad boys of the league, has had problems with his visa because of several disciplinary action in his native UK.
