I'm pretty sure that this was intentionally scheduled for the 28th because it's the Stonewall anniversary.

Yeah, Long did not look great. He is still coming back from an injury layoff, but it's a bit concerning.

So, random thought, why was Montclair chosen as the RB2 facility? If RedBull were going to make investments to upgrade collegiate facilities for their USL squad, why didnt they partner with a more conveniently located school? If they wanted to keep it close to RBA, why not partner with Rutgers Newark or NJIT? If you wanted to make it convenient to the fans that commute from NYC, why not Stevens in Hoboken? You could literally walk to the Stevens campus from the Hoboken PATH, which has access to both 33rd St and WTC PATH lines.

I am sure there are other conveniently located colleges in NYC, I can only speak for the schools Im familiar with in NJ.

I assume that it has to do with the already established relationship with MSU and the fact that they have a soccer specific stadium already.

Open cup debacle aside, I think that it's a nice gesture. They should comp a couple of USL tickets to all red members on a yearly basis. I bet that some of those people would start going to USL matches more regularly.

To further the 2014 comparison, compare this year's RBNY roster to the 2014 Galaxy and Sounders, the MLS Cup and Supporters' Shield winners. Both of those teams had high end talent, but the overall rosters don't compare in the slightest, despite this year's RB squad having the third lowest payroll in the league.
