I'm surprised we didn't drive him to retirement earlier after making a career winger play CB for half a season.

I don't know about the red card for that though. Yes, he did foul, but he didn't exactly take the guy completely out of play. Yes, there was some grabbing, he impended a little bit and let go, it was soft, and falling down or not, the guy got a great shot off, which Robles was very fortunate to save. Foul, yes. Yellow card - yes. Straight red - not sure about that. I've seen a lot worse fouls without a red, and this was a bit harsh. Not completely wrong, but I don't recall too many straight red calls like that. Harsh.

 

Its all about being the last man, doesn't matter if its the softest foul in the world at that point, if its a foul its a red. 

 

That ref's stats are absurd though, I think they said on the broadcast it was his 6th red card in 11 games? Something's very wrong with your approach if you constantly need to toss players like that.


In Topic: What is the front office doing?

Seriously, I really dont get it it what RB gets from having a soccer team in America. I means Americans consume a shit ton of Of Energy Drinks other drinks like Monster. In fact its leading in terms of sales: https://money.cnn.co...bull/index.html

Not sure how a poorly run soccer team, where a majority dont care to come and support, and for those who consume it probably never heard of RB New York can help the Red Bull brand. RB should just cut its loses and sell. The bigger question is who can right the ship.

 

I know this is a blasphemous idea, but maybe at some level they actually just care about running a sports franchise for the sake of running a sports franchise without it all being about marketing for the energy drink?

 

They're not perfect owners and this year especially is not trending in the right direction on any front, but for the most part they've been at the top end of MLS clubs as far as investment has gone.

Sneakers started showing up today. Apparently they used two different shades of red for the shoe?? Wtf?

 

What's wrong with the two shades? I'd imagine Adidas had most of the creative control over the design.

 

Seen a few pics of the sneakers on Twitter and they look good, I'm considering buying a pair of a guy who doesn't want his.

He's surprisingly clean with the ball too, takes good touches and can make a line breaking pass here and there.
