No need to be dismissive just because you disagree with me. 


The internet has dragged almost every discussion down to bar fight level. Why should MF be any better?


In that spirit, eff you!!! 😁

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.


OTOH, many come once or twice and do not return, for a whole lot of other reasons. So, while half the battle is getting people in the door, the other half is getting them to come again, and become regulars.
I regularly receive surveys from RB, and complete them. I do not know why they even target me, an ST holder who rarely misses a home game. It seems like nothing can keep me away!
They somehow need to reach those who love soccer but do not come to RBA, those who came but did not return, and regulars or STs who no longer come.
We all have our own reasons why each group exists, but RB really needs to somehow speak directly with them. Lengthy surveys may not be that method.

Harrison population has increased by more than 2,000 since RBA opened.
What effort has RB made to welcome the newcomers, many occupying the new flats near the stadium?

Hoboken & JC are also growing, a PATH ride away.
Even Newark.

As a long time resident of Hoboken up until a couple months ago, I thought the club did a good job of outreach there. Signage throughout town and in the PATH Terminal and PATH Trains, viewing parties at Pier A, viewing parties at Mulligan's, painting murals at the fields underneath the aqueduct and one of the parks at the southwest corner of the city, etc. I also saw countless players out and about town over the years (Dax, Muyl, Davis, Collin, Steele, Sam, etc.) - not that that's club outreach, but still cool if you're a fan. Now, I wish the same could be said about their efforts on the other side of the river.

Glad to hear it. Wonder what the results were, in terms of tickets sold and STHs.

More expensive, no doubt.
Might not be worth the return.

I have friends living in one of the close-by buildings (a block beyond the Five Guys) - they were given free tickets to a game when they moved in and then again the next calendar year. Tickets were provided from the building mgmt company, not sure what the relationship to the team is exactly.

Not until I had them come with me to one of the NYC games, which they happily paid for and enjoyed. Hopefully they'll be joining again soon.

I wonder if RB counted those freebie distributed but unused tickets in its attendance totals.

No comped or exchanged tickets for those matches!

Hopefully they'll be joining again soon.


Joining you? Or joining an SG?
Either way, we do not need one-and-done!

Millions make miserable commutes to/from work every weekday. They are the people I feel sorry for.


Looks like NYC, JC & Newark top the list. No doubt just as bad for commuters in the neighboring smaller towns.

Not surprised at all. NJ Transit, PATH, and MTA are all varying degrees of awful.

Absolutely, completely, really, totally; but in what order?
Most and very are not.

Very is not.

In my humble opinion, with worst being first, I'd rank them: 

 

1. NJ Transit

2. MTA

3. PATH

Any subdivisions for LIRR, Metro North, NYC subways?
