Coming off a season in which the Philadelphia Union appeared poised to make a run at the Eastern Conference crown, Peter Nowak instead embarked on a curious rebuilding effort. Fan favorites have been shipped away and replaced mostly with promising, but very raw, youngsters. Now, it appears Union fans are growing increasingly upset.
The latest salvo is an attempt at a propaganda poster that depicts Peter Nowak as Napoleon and calls for him and team CEO Nick Sakiewicz to be fired.
Never mind that Napoleon had a pretty decent run of success -- ruling France for more than a decade and being considered one of the brilliant military minds of all-time. You may also want to ignore some of the rather poor grammar and some of the rather petty complaints. But this does appear to be just another sign of the near open revolt against the way the Union have been run.
And truth be told, can you really blame them?
