#1342812 No PATH service to/from WTC for 2019, 2020 seasons

Currently in the middle of the now 30 minute longer PATH trip. The next two seasons are going to be fucking brutal.


#1342725 Metro - San Jose Game Thread

Man this place is kind of a bummer right now. Rightfully so I guess. 

 

I'm gutted about last night, but I guess my expectations weren't so high to begin with; I don't think anyone in MLS is up to the level needed to win that competition yet. 

 

I'm excited to get rolling in the league and be out in Harrison for what looks like a beautiful afternoon. We're going to have a good team this year, as we have been spoiled to have for basically a decade now. Good enough to finally win the whole thing? I dunno, maybe not. Like everyone else I'm not thrilled that we still haven't filled that 3rd DP slot, but it's still hard for me not to get excited about being back for another season.

Based on the image in the email they just sent out, the away shirt might also be better than the first team:

I was able to stream it on my phone and laptop. However the Chromecast feature didnt work for on the Yahoo Sports app or website on a laptop. It would cast to my TV set and just show a logo of Metro and Pantoja. So I was stuck watching on my laptop as I didnt have an HDMI Cable or VGA cable. I also used the Univision Deportes app and the stream looked amazing however the damn app does not have a Chromecast button whatsoever. Next CCL away fixture Ill watch at Legends or hope UDN shows the match on their cable channel.

I had the same thing happen and at halftime figured out the solution. On the website on your laptop in the little Chromecast window at the top of the screen there is a drop down arrow. Open the drop down menu and change it to cast the tab rather than the video. Then it will cast the entire browser tab onto your TV, including the video. After that, set the video to full screen. That worked for me.

The transfer window only restricts players coming in, not players leaving.

The Mexican transfer window closes next Thursday, so we'll know his status for the spring soon enough.




#1338933 Attendance again

Posted by CurbYourNewUrbanism on 11 January 2019 - 12:32 PM

To me, it doesn't feel like it is just a club that just serves to be an advertisement for Red Bull. To me, it feels like the NY area MLS club, which happens to be owned by Red Bull.

I agree completely with this, however this is only something you would know if you are already a fan of the team. It's not something you would necessarily feel if you are new to the team.

 

I agree with those who feel the corporate team name is a barrier to entry, because it is usually one of the first things friends and acquaintances bring up to me when I talk about the team. Is there any precedent for it in the United States or Canada? This article would suggest no other than the hilarious Miami Hooters Arena Football League team of the mid-90s. So it is a unique situation in this country and something that for many people (though obviously not everyone) makes the team seem less appealing.

 

I do think that once you go to games and see what it's all about it becomes immediately clear that the name does not matter, but I can absolutely see how it would stop someone from getting far enough to discover that.

Even more absurd given that the NJ legislature is actively debating legalization and the governor campaigned on it. 




#1337897 Attendance slipping

Posted by CurbYourNewUrbanism on 10 December 2018 - 02:48 PM

I actually can buy it. It seems to be a sports business trend that I have noticed taking off in other leagues. I know both the Florida Panthers and Carolina Hurricanes did it in the NHL. Reduce or end comp tickets and stop dumping cheap tickets on secondary markets (something teams claim they don't do but it seems pretty well known that they do). It seems to be primarily an attempt to prevent season tickets from being devalued by ludicrously cheap secondary market tickets. The result can be that actual attendance declines but paid attendance goes up. 

 

It's the age old question of whether to maintain a certain price point for your product or just try to get as many butts in seats as possible.
