Twellman out indefinitely and other news from Revs land

Posted on 28 October 2008 by ASN Staff

Taylor Twellman has been sidelined indefinitely due to complications resulting from the concussion he suffered in the Revs Aug. 30 game against the L.A. Galaxy. Despite missing 14 regular season games, Twellman notched eight goals and two assists, one short of 100 career goals, and is tied with Steve Ralston as this season’s goal leader. The Revolution now head into the playoffs missing their three most prolific strikers: Twellman, Adam Cristman an Ralston. Gabriel Badilla and Khano Smith will not suit up as a result of red card suspensions. Read more about the Revs preparations, including quotes from Steve Nicol, here.

Separately, the team moved to retract statements made by Shalrie Joseph after the team’s season-ending loss to Kansas City. Speaking of Wizards forward Herculez Gomez, Joseph said “the guy ended Ralston’s season for the rest of the year and he didn’t get a yellow – he didn’t get suspended or fined or nothing. We knew coming in today we definitely wanted to give him payback and make him know we didn’t appreciate what he did to Ralston.”

Joseph changed his tune Monday. “I want to apologize for my comments after our game on Saturday night against Kansas City,” he said in a statement issued by the Revs. “I was still caught up in the heat of the match. I regret implying that we were looking for payback. I know my comments don’t reflect the feelings of my teammates or the club.”

The Revs added a statement of their own. Read on here.
