Blues News

Monday Video

I told you there'd be a riot.

Currently filling out paperwork to suspend a player that I issued a match penalty to last night. His team was playing an all-woman team and he decided to tell them to make him a sandwich and then made whack-off motions to them. His team lost 5-4.
