I remember when I thought Red Bull branding and ownership would mean nearly unlimited financial resources. 
 
Now we're a product AND we're cheap. I'm thankful for the nice stadium investment but we've not been close to be able to fill it. 


If they had it to do over they wouldnt have built the stadium.

How would you know this?
IIRC, RB bought the stadium project along with the team.

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Their general lack of interest or investment outside of the first few seasons at RBA says it all.

More likely they wouldnt have bought the team at all and wed be owned by oil money now.

The investment in training facilities, RB2, Kaku, and other stuff say otherwise.

They are a sitting on a pile of money but sending me letters asking me to house an academy kid cause theyre too cheap to do it themselves.

How many MLS teams are funding residential academies for all of their academy kids?

maybe they just want your positively to be ingrained into the youth.........

 

or maybe they see it as kids tend to do better in a home rather than boarding school environment.

Kaku is actually a decent player(but yes, maybe a little bit of a headache).

If they could do it over theyd pass on the Danish dude who cant even hack it with RB2.

We should also have some perspective and not blindly criticize without proper context.

Had they even bought Leipzig yet when they bought Metro?

RBL In the Bundesliga. THAT is the inflection point for RB s economies with regard to RBNY
