Seattle Sounders Support Robbie Rogers

After Robbie Rogers came out on Friday, the outpouring of support from the soccer community was immense. But there are a few examples worth highlighting, such as the video from the Seattle Sounders.

Sounders coach Sigi Schmid coached Rogers to the 2008 MLS Cup with the Columbus Crew, and Brad Evans shared the midfield with Rogers at the Crew. Even Marc Burch, who was suspended last season for using a gay slur on the field, appears as he played with Rogers at the University of Maryland. This video from guys close to Robbie was especially touching for me to watch.

Appearing in the video are:

Marc Burch, defender and Rogers’ Maryland teammate
Ezra Hendrickson, assistant coach and Rogers’ coach at the Crew
Steve Zakuani, forward
Eddie Johnson, forward and Rogers’ USMNT teammate
Sigi Schmid, head coach and Roger’s coach at the Crew

While not in the video, Brad Evans tweeted this message Friday for Rogers along with a picture of them together:
