MLS Responds to ETR Frustrations

After Monday's episode of ExtraTime Radio was pulled down, it is now available for download once again. It has been edited from it's original version to include an apology for any offense.

Additionally, Major League Soccer released a statement of its own to address the issue.

"During the latest episode of the ExtraTime Radio podcast on, one of the hosts -- Simon Borg -- made inappropriate remarks regarding female fans of Major League Soccer. These remarks were unacceptable and in no way reflect the values of MLS, its clubs, players, staff, or We apologize on behalf of our organization for those remarks. Respect for diversity is a core principle of MLS and we are proud of the diversity of our League and its fans."

"Mr. Borg will be suspended from his position at for seven days, effective immediately. All MLS employees undergo diversity and sensitivity training on an annual basis, and Mr. Borg and the entire MLS Digital group will receive additional sensitivity training promptly."
