Clint Dempsey takes out his frustrations on Toronto’s Mark Bloom

Clint Dempsey; Matias Laba

Clint Dempsey and Seattle are Toronto’s opponents, as the much-anticipated season starts with a bang.



“Yo, welcome to Major League Soccer, Mark Bloom. I know you played a few games last year after Toronto got you from Atlanta, but you and I? We’ve never met. So just in case you’re unclear what you’re up against at this level, allow me to introduce you to the first division.


Clinton Drew Dempsey”

“Dear Mr. Dempsey,

We need to talk.

Yours truly,

Major League Soccer Disciplinary Committee

Toward the end of today’s first half in Seattle, Clint Dempsey had this little interaction with Toronto FC right back Mark Bloom. With his team already down 2-0, the Seattle attacker decided to take out his frustrations on the former Silverback.

The play went unpunished, but caught by NBCSN’s cameras, the contact may draw the attention of the league’s Disciplinary Committee. It certainly was noticed by, who captured Bloom’s misfortune.

You can catch the second half at NBC Sports Live Extra.
