The MLS corner of Twitter exploded earlier today after Sporting KC broadcaster Cal Williams tweeted that Sporting KC had passed in the 2014 Chivas USA Dispersal Draft.
Proof that @CalWilliamsSKC did in fact live tweet the #MLSDispersalDraft on Nov. 19, 2014. #FreeCalWilliams pic.twitter.com/mS5avvkSKV— Daniel Karell (@DanielKarell) November 19, 2014
Apparently, MLS had asked people on the conference call not to live tweet the draft, because Williams quickly deleted both tweets and disappeared from Twitter. Rumors about what MLS had done to Cal quickly started. Here are some of the highlights.

MLS Twitter falls into an anxious silence and prays for the safety of @CalWilliamsSKC.— Chris Rifer (@ChrisRifer) November 19, 2014
If you're nice to me I'll tell you where @CalWilliamsSKC's body is buried.— Matthew Doyle (@MLSAnalyst) November 19, 2014
BTW, @CalWilliamsSKC plays by his own rules.— The Full 90 (@TheFull90) November 19, 2014
Even Sporting KC players got in on the fun.
This #DispersalDraft is leaving me on the edge of my seat... #RIPCallumWilliams— Soony Saad (@SoonySaad) November 19, 2014
Of course, not everyone on Twitter knew what was happening.
@SoonySaad I know this sounds ignorant but did Cal die?? Completely out of the loop here— Maddie Butterfield (@madmcbutters) November 19, 2014
It is safe to say that MLS Twitter knows how to have a fun Wednesday afternoon. Cal Williams has not tweeted since the incident.
