CCFC: Mishap or Mutiny? July 12, 2009

Mutiny on the Turnpike?

Mutiny on the Turnpike?

If you read this blog, you know by now that Erie had taken the Keystone Division by virtue of a forfeit by Charm City FC. To be clear, CCFC forfeited the previously rescheduled Sunday matches, which consisted of back-to-back tilts against BCFC and Erie. As unlikely as it may have seemed, had Erie tied or lost last night to Reading and lost again Sunday to CCFC (or vice versa), and Buffalo triumped against CCFC, Buffalo would have taken the division (I’m pretty sure my math is correct, but please someone check that out for me and post a comment if I’m off the mark).

As these were road trips, to play two matches 6 hours apart after facing the Stoners at home the previous day would have been a Herculean effort, but certainly doable.

Anyhow, during the course of the day I received some information that the reason for the forfeiture was a vehicular accident that prevented CCFC from making the long drive to these rust belt cities. Not that it mattered to me, it was merely fodder for mini-van jokes. That is, until the stunning revelation from NPSL Northeast Regional Commish, Chris Keem, as posted in the comments section from yesterdays blog posting:

“Charm City’s players told their management to basically F*** off and refused to play, leaving both Erie and Buffalo with Forfeit victories.” (click here to see the original post and comments)

OK, someone needs to come clean here. Was there a player revolt? Or did someone smash the team van into a lamp post?
