Colorado Will Not File Any Tampering Charges Against FC Dallas

USA TODAY Sports

The Rapids will not file tampering charges against FC Dallas over Oscar Pareja exit.

One question I've been asked a few times over the last couple days has been about whether or not FC Dallas might still get in trouble over possible tampering chargers for snatching head coach Oscar Pareja away from Colorado. It turns out, there won't be any charges filed, according to Colorado Rapids president Tim Hinchey.

Hinchey sat down with MLSSoccer.com's ExtraTime radio on Monday and told the crew that everything was done in the right manner by FC Dallas.

"Everything was done on the up and up," Hinchey told the show. "It's not the kind of conversation I necessarily wanted to have this time of year, but at least it was done professionally."

According to the league website, the last time tampering files were charged in the league, it was back when RSL took former FCD keeper coach Jeff Cassar away from Steve Morrow's staff in 2007.

Colorado received a first round draft pick from FC Dallas in the 2015 SuperDraft and allocation money as compensation for Pareja.

At the end of the day, it is good to hear that both sides played nice when it came down to everything. I'm sure however that Colorado fans will still have that October date circled with a permanent marker for when Pareja and Dallas visit Commerce City. Heck, I know I would if I were in their shoes.
