#1339145 The cap increased

Posted by General Robles on 16 January 2019 - 03:09 PM

Do referee payoffs count towards Atlanta's cap number? 

#1339105 Attendance again

Any subdivisions for LIRR, Metro North, NYC subways?

I can't remember the last time I took the LIRR, but I find the subway to be far worse than the Metro North train.

#1338715 Attendance again

Posted by General Robles on 03 January 2019 - 04:34 PM

The Knicks used to be a hot ticket for years until they sucked so bad that the fan base dwindled.


A good friend's father was the team's trainer for many years and she and her husband followed them religiously...until they sucked and then they went to other things. During brief periods of resurgence, like during the Linsanity craze, they would start going to games again, but would stop once reality returned. NY is a tough town that way.


Titi impacted attendance for sure, but unfortunately the club never made it to the promised land while he was in form.

The Knicks are still a pretty hot ticket and post impressive attendance numbers, considering how awful they have been and for how long they've been awful. Perhaps I'm biased as a lifelong Knicks fan, but I've long regarded the Knicks fanbase as the most loyal in the NY market. 


Lowest priced ticket on Stubhub for the Knicks next 4 home games: $72, $90, $74, $66

Thank you for making this list, which proves how poor the discount/bargain bin signings have been.

Your user name is a "discount/bargain bin signing"

Happy to see him fail. Sad to see him go. Would love to have continued to see him cement Manure as a mid table side. 

#1338282 Metro PK history: 1996-2018

Moral of the story is weve collectively in 23 years taken as many PKs as Josef Martinez this year

#1338182 NYCFC sucks horse balls

Nice to see that Prudential Center is ranked 6th(highest rank in the NHL) MSG is at 31st and the newest arena around here Barclays is ranked 93rd lol

Yep. Yankee Stadium, Citi Field, and Barclays Center are all ranked embarrassingly low. Big ups to The Rock for their superb ranking.

Yankee Stadium ranked 102nd out of the 107 qualifying venues in North America. 34 of the 43 outlets inspected had "High Level Violations".

That's the part that makes me so unexcited about this.

There's a pretty low ceiling for excitement level when we're talking about someone who will be no better than our #3 CB.

Add Egypt to the all-time nationalities roster.

Wish we would have accomplished this by getting Mo Salah, but I'll take it!

#1337623 No PATH service to/from WTC for 2019, 2020 seasons

Posted by General Robles on 05 December 2018 - 02:57 PM


Those who can get to any of the PATH stops along Sixth Avenue can still do it. I dealt with the Sixth Avenue PATH shutdown. WTC being closed doesn't make it impossible, however, just have to accomodate for the extra travel to Sixth, then take a subway home to Bklyn or Uber/Lyft/whatever. 

The problem with the 33rd Street line versus the WTC line is that 33rd does not run direct to Newark. So that's another added wrinkle of inconvenience.

You can't get them all right.   With the value we got from Long and and other bargains on the roster,  the balance has been in our favor.

Exactly. Every club is going to inevitably carry some dead weight. We fielded the most efficient team in the league based on payroll versus performance. It's hard to get too bent out of shape over Redding and Rivas.

Not an idea, it's reality.

He talks up the club to the media in regards to their transfer targets, is friendly with Tata and Almiron, wandered over to talk to them during the first game. He's a fan.

You probably pulled a hamstring with that massive stretch

If we get this magical winger that can create/score goals, would you be open to trading/selling BWP?

He could bring back some nice coin/good player and open up DP slot.

If so Id sign David villa. Cant play every game but can give you good production and further groom ettiene, muyl, valot, mines.

We cant lose fact that we need world class pedigree in the system so the kids can learn.

Swap out our 33 year old forward, who is the most efficient scorer in league history, for a forward who turns 37 in 3 days? No, thank you. If we were to move on from BWP, the idea should be to get younger. Not even older.

After that its all bets are off, as crazy as it sounds we need to consintrate on keeping them out cause it will end the tie.


The good: Atlanta has never scored at RBA


The bad: Based on our playoff history, the above would indicate they most certainly will score multiple goals tonight.
