I'm going to step in here for a second and clarify this situation. This thread is about the selection of who is on the team. Yes, there has been a major incident about somebody that was removed from the team. Everybody keeps "dancing" around the subject and is afraid of mentioning what happened because they are afraid that we will close down this thread. That is not what is going to happen.
Here are the facts of this matter. Last year Jason Shulman was arrested for a specific reason. As of right now he has not gone to trail and in the US he is presumed innocent until proven guilty. However, this may affect his standing on the team. If somebody asks what happened in regards to the US team and who is on that team there is nothing wrong with mentioning what happened. Everybody sitting here talking in code, and whispering under their breath, is not going to change the facts of this situation. This issue can be mentioned in the open forum if the context of this being discussed is in regards to the US team and how it is affected, and who will be on the team.
However, what will NOT be allowed here on RCU is a detailed discussion of what happened to Jason. We are not going to talk about the details of the incident, opinions about what happened, or anything involving the actual incident. That is not a discussion for RCU and we're not going to go down that road here again. If that is where this discussion goes you can count on it being removed.
With this in mind please stop all the hush hush talk and coded messages and don't be afraid to say the name Jason Shulman. We are all adults here and I think it's possible to discuss the issue of the US team without having to degrade the conversation to what happened to Jason. So let's move forward here and forget about all of that. Ok??
