Buried in Goff's latest article is a report that DC are releasing Brazilian striker Rafael, who has scored but one goal since arriving to the capital. The 20-year old's departure opens up a DP and international roster slot for DCU, as well as $220,000 worth of cap space.
In other news, both Erick Thohir and Jason Levien were in attendance to the game Saturday night. While their purpose in coming to the capital is speculation, one can hope that they bring a stadium deal and big ass wallets. At the very least, their presence gives a sense of their attention to the team.
