This past Saturday was the most lifeless and sad I’ve ever seen the KC Cauldron. It might have felt like The Blue Hell, but only if you were standing in it.
The only songs sung with real energy during Sporting KC’s 2-0 loss at home to CF Montreal, were chants of “Vermes Out”. Fans themselves are expressing their frustrations in the stadium, and online. But Cauldron leadership has yet to officially speak up and break the silence.
So, what should they do exactly? That’s one of our discussions in a really fun, long episode of Shades of Blue titled Ndefinitely. Hopefully we can make you smile between all the doom and gloom.
“The calves are back, and so can you!” Thank you to our totally real and not made up sponsor, Logan Legs.
Openly calling on @KCCauldron leadership to use its platform to publicly be a voice for its membership and supporters in a manner befitting an independent supporter group. The President and board can no longer be silent in the face of the club we love being in such a state.

We start off with postgame audio from Johnny Russell and the most ridiculous stat you’ve heard all year. Gadi Kinda made his MLS debut in a 2-0 home loss to CF Montreal. Is he going to save us?
In the wake of Ben Sweat’s swift departure, we do some reminiscing with the Top 5 Jettisons in club history.
Peter Vermes responds to the “Vermes Out” calls. The players on the field looked defeated this match and it begs the question… is it possible Vermes could lose the locker room?
