Apology to our community and Josh
I’d like to make an apology to our community and to Dardoch over my lapse of judgement on handling an important call next to a live stream. No one wants their private information leaked and it's not fair to Dardoch that this happened. At the end of the day, no one feels worse about this situation than I do, and it's already difficult enough to be a TSM fan in these trying times.
On the back end, since the end of our Spring Split playoffs run, we’ve been working with Dardoch on the possibility of him splitting time/moving to academy however he expressed interest in joining another team for a full time starting spot. Over the last month, we put our best efforts forward to finding him a new team and he has been aware of all of the conversations that happened along the way with the other teams.
It has never been my intention to nor have I ever tried to drag a player publicly. TSM and I have always tried our best to help place our players in positions of success even after their tenure with us even while taking on monetary losses.
And at the end of the day, this mistake is 100% my fault and I wish the best for Josh despite everything that happened today.
