Our own level-headed Thad Bell entered the studio as fired up as we’ve ever seen him for the latest episode of Shades of Blue. After Sporting KC’s disappointing draw with St. Louis, Peter Vermes said he isn’t worried about dropped points. But Thad will tell you why that’s not true.

Vermes is obviously frustrated. You can see his point of view easily. His team is in positions to win games and show that they can be a good team. But bad referees or an unlucky bounce take it away. So then he has to hear angry fans and keep answering the same questions about what he, and his team, are doing wrong. But he’s also the longest tenured head coach in the league and knows the job media has a to do.

The show has a long discussion about the state of the club and they don’t hold back.
