“I have not thought about (Mullan coming to Seattle) at all. I’ve just been focusing on getting myself fit. … I just want the fans to understand that I’ve got no issues with the guy. … The fans will do what they need to do, but my advice is just let it go and support the team — use that energy to support the team. The guys will need it.” — Midfielder Steve Zakuani.
“Steve and Brian have come to terms with it. We just have to go on and we just have to play a normal game and not make that the focal point.” — Coach Sigi Schmid.
“I think personally and I think most of the people in the organization are past it. If this puts the final nail in the coffin of being past it, then fantastic. For me, it’s just another game and a chance to get three points.” — General manager and part owner Adrian Hanauer.
“It’s over with. It’s done with … and we more forward.” — Midfielder Brad Evans.
“I want (Mullan), especially on Saturday, to come in and play his game. Play the game. Let’s just play the game of football, let’s try to get a win and then move on to the next week. That will be it. … I understand that as much as it affected me, it’s also affected him. It was a sad experience for both of us, I think.” — Zakuani
