#1365248 MLS, Red Bulls and Coronavirus

Posted by Metrohoboken on 18 May 2020 - 04:22 PM

I hope everyone has been staying safe and healthy...

I would think that cases might ramp back up with a quick reopening especially in such a condensedly populated area as Metro NY...

In Florida things have opened up today so we'll see soon if we see a rise in cases if it's a good idea to open things up in NY... I would think they'd wait just a few weeks longer..

Maybe MLS kicks back up in August.. But the worry is when season change and flu season starts will Coronavirus cases start to rise again

so then we sneak into whatever playoffs we have and make a run to the Final game which gets cancelled because of a fall resurgence and the league decides to award to the semifinalist with highest point total which is not us..........


hope you are safe and well  !!

Seeing Red Pandemic edition


Steve Cangelosi says if there was ever to be a pandemic that derailed MLS he thought it would be while the RB were leading an MLS Cup 


He said it jokingly with strong knowledge of thats so metro.

Red Wedding

Tommy Mac indicates he just wanted to hit someone because they were getting beat so bad and fouled Dax so hard that he thinks he should have been red carded.


His red card was having to stay on the field and get annihilated.

#1364793 What was the most outrageous thing you have seen while playing?

Posted by Metrohoboken on 16 April 2020 - 07:36 AM

College game. Our lone striker buried one from like 35 yards out. Fucking laser. Immediately turns around and starts shit with an opposing player that results in a straight red. Storms off. Goes right past the bench (and our coach) and just keeps walking. It was an away game. We were a very VERY long bus ride from home. No traveling fans. No idea how he got home. Asked him and he just said someone gave him a ride.


sounds like you also played with Amado Guevara!

I gotta go a little off track and toss out the time I played against a guy in a semi-competitive rec league wearing some of the tightest skinny jeans I've ever seen. Never been more intimidated by an opposing player in my life.

lol - that is crazy on the field!


you in the baggy MC Hammer pants couldn't keep up?

Great documentary on local NJ soccer roots  SOCCERTOWN, USA




In the 1870s, Scottish immigrants brought soccer to Kearny, New Jersey. A few years later, they brought it to Brazil. While the game was spreading across Europe and South America, it was being played in the streets, parks, and playgrounds of a small town just across the meadows from New York City... but a world away. And in the 1980s, when the flame of American soccer was flickering, it was three kids from Kearny who helped save it. SOCCERTOWN, USA is the story of Tab Ramos, John Harkes, and Tony Meola, who grew up with a passion for the game in a country that didn’t share it. It’s the story of the 1990 and 1994 World Cups, when these childhood friends formed the backbone of the United States team that willed its way to famous victories and inspired the generations that would come after. But it’s also the story of a town – an American town – in which we can see the past, the present, and the future of the world's game. SOCCERTOWN, USA premiered last year at the Kicking + Screening Soccer Film Festival, where it won the Audience Award. The plan this year was to go to some other festivals, then find distribution. World events have… overtaken that plan. Since we can’t travel and show our film – and since there are a lot of people (like us) looking for something to watch right now – we decided to make this “educational cut” available for free. We hope you enjoy it.

#1364592 All coronavirus-related arguing

Posted by Metrohoboken on 07 April 2020 - 07:02 PM

So a poster on here is warning that you can get coronavirus from water (particularly dipping your foot into a stream), which is a complete lie.

The facts: https://www.epa.gov/...-and-wastewater


Heard it is protective if you put your head Grelladhino all the way under the water and hold it there :-)

The thing is would it give enough protection to allow people to at least return to work? This is important for me personally for more than financial reasons: years ago I was over 350 pounds and one of the reasons I am 100 pounds lighter today is because of both travel and work. Going into Kohl's a few times a week helped me tremendously not only with my physical health but also with my mental health by giving me a sense of purpose. Being in my apartment all day is terrible for both my physical and mental health, and I am afraid of ballooning back up in weight to where it brings on health complications. I am not naive enough to not understand why these measures were taken but also feel there needs to be some way to get people back to work because if I don't succumb to the virus but then die of a heart attack I'd still end up dead. I'm not arguing to say "fuck it" and get rid of all restrictions, just saying a way needs to be found to allow as many people as possible to get back to work.

dude please take care of yourself.  

Happy to share suggestions via PM if interested.  Take care either way.

you seriously think that you won't encounter anyone on the way to the park?!?!

And do you know what fomite and viral vectors are?! And yes water can be fomite...

You seriously need to stop talking about something which you don't have absolutely any clue of what you are talking about because you will spread misinformation and that is dangerous because some other person that also is ignorant of the subject will agree rather than learn about the matter and go get infected or spread the disease

You smh

Grelladinho is  a     :troll:

Completely false. I've been there at various hours multiple times and it's not anywhere close to "impossible".

They let trolls in the park???
