Bill O'Reilly & 'Nem Connect Harkes-Wynalda Drama With Terry-Bridge Affair

Dramz

For the record the very last website on the planet I would ever expect to see a story paralleling the alleged Harkes-Wynalda affair to the current John Terry-Wayne Bridge scandal is FoxNews.com. That's not a typo; the story is not on FoxSoccer.com but FoxNews.com?! It's just too bizarre...I can't even comment on it any further because I'd hate to get brain matter from my soon-to-explode head all over my fellow passengers on the bus I am currently riding.

That is pretty nuts. We've come so far haven't we that this story is no longer message board just myth.

On another note, Roy Wegerle kind of broke the bro-code.

It can't be true if Fox News is reporting on it, right?

I can't comment on the "bro-code" bit too much but I think maybe Roy might have had good intentions. But that's not my business.

I will say I respect Waldo for being brave enough to deal with the issue so publicly. Had to take a lot of stones to do that.

Don't be too surprised, SF. If it's salacious Fox will run it. Anything to get eyeballs. It's a specialty of theirs: "This video is unacceptably crude! Look at how unacceptably crude this video is!"

Actually, as much as I think Fox is absolute garbage for "real" news, they are fantastic at footy news. Easily the best.

I'm still trying to figure out why you covered up Christopher Sullivan:)

Actually CNN & MSNBC are as bad if not worse than FOX, probably worse, but keep drinking the kool-aid.

Harkes is a scumbag. What he did was foul but what was worse was that pile of trash book he came out with.

Here's hoping Waldo puts his fist through Harkes' face one of these days.

This explains so much about what happened in 98. A good team that just vomited all over their chances and left the fans embarrassed. Hey Harkes way to bang your team mate's spouse, you are a scumbag.

Why would you be surprised that a major news site has an AP wire feed?!

All of the "news" stations on TV are horrendous here; let's just put it at that. Soccer news is good news anywhere I can get it though :)

Similarities: Captain sleeping with another teammate's WAG Differences: 2010 England squad are a great deal more professional that the 98 US squad; JT is a starting while Bridge is an injured back up (Harkes and Wynalda were both starters); JT is well known for cheating on his wife (girlfriend at the time); this is affair isn't still going on whereas the Harkes one was... Hum what else am I missing? Oh ya the 2010 England squad actually has talent unlike the 98 US squad.

Wait, would this be like Dempsey banging Donovan's x-wife? Cause that would suck.
