I mean who knows if fcc do us a favor could get tasty at halftime.

Being totally honest Id like to see how mls deals with us playing at rfk on a sat Sunday with us bringing at least 1k.

Theyre hid behind weekday games since rfk cause theyre scared.


I'd be surprised if 1k travels for this team

The away section at Audi Field seems to hold about 250.
Would DC offer more than that allotment to away fans?
IIRC, there was an issue with reduced visiting sections
a couple of years ago, involving west coast teams.

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

Shame how that's dropped off... remember the 2014 DC playoff trip?   Well over 1k for that one.   Huge tailgate with a fleet of buses paid for by RB....   criminal how badly we built off that.   Went backwards instead.

I believe we had 1,250 in DC, then close to 1,000 in New England (maybe more like 750-800), which was the same year, IIRC. Both of those were awesome trips.

Fun game & trip. The Red Menace took a shot to his chin like a champ. The ruckus brought by DC was yaaaaawn.

DC is demanding 55 bucks a ticket for away fans if we face them in the first round.

They scared.
Frankly, since I am merely a fan and a not a fancy American soccer writer, I'm going to congratulate Wright-Phillips on a well hit goal. If I was an American soccer writer, I'd claim that the recently retired Henry was wearing an invisibility cloak and carried the ball into the net for the obviously unskilled Wright-Phillips.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

how many racoons can we donate in place of the $$

One of the two most fun away days for me.  Other being 7-0 game.

I know we got use to paying like $25-30 bucks for a bus trip and an away ticket but $55 really isn't bad for a playoff game. I don't have any issues with it.

Yellow cards are free tomorrow.

In the playoffs, 2 cards in the first two games equals a suspension. Cards in the conference final are free as well, only red carded players will miss MLS Cup.

(Yes, I know this won't be an issue for us.)

Yeah, today is just a really weird game. Even if we win, I doubt Cinci can do us any favors vs DC at home to overtake them, but it at least keeps Toronto at bay in case some weird reason all lower seeds advance.
