Nine months later, how do you feel about Brian Mullan?

If you haven’t read Grant Wahl’s piece today on Steve Zakuani, be sure to do so. In it, Wahl talks to Colorado Rapids midfielder Brian Mullan, who broke Zakuani’s leg last April with a reckless sliding tackle.

Mullan hadn’t spoken at length about the incident and got quite emotional.

“I still have a hard time with it,” he told Wahl. “It wakes me up in the middle of the night, and I can’t get back to sleep thinking about it.”

Mullan also said he wishes he could took back what he said immediately after the game — particularly that it’s a tackle he’d do again.

I know it was an emotional time for everyone involved, including fans watching from afar. Zakuani, who is hopeful of a summer return, has said that he’s accepted what happened and has no hard feelings toward Mullan. But nine months after the frightening incident, how do you feel?

Have you forgiven Mullan? Are you still angered and upset? Have your feelings changed at all?
