Thinking outside the box - Maybe RB should buy the Cosmo's "name" and related rights. It could be a good investment for them. Say 20 years from now when they decide to sell, they will have a ready made name change available for the next owner.

After this last failed reincarnation, I don't think there's all that much value in the brand anymore.

my sources tell me this is true, but the time frame will be closer to 9-10 years rather than  the reported 2018 date.  2027 is when they plan on buying the team and signing a 46 year old Ibrahimovic 


5 year plan

I don't really buy it.  Why would you sell now when the expansion fees of teams 25 and 26 was set at 150 million and the fees for 27 and 28 will probably be higher.  The value of a franchise only seems to be getting higher. 

 

Also, you would turn more people off with another rebrand.  If someone buys, just be the red bulls or metro. 

I think it makes sense when the expansion is clearly over.  At that point you can maximize your ROI since the league would theoretically be done expanding.

 

2018 was the year that kept coming up, but that was back when the club was looking for Islanders money (around 300-400) for the club.  I think they can actually get that figure if they wait.

I just don't want to see NYRB renamed the NY Trumps.

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

Cosmos did a smart thing moving to Coney Island. Had no choice but it was still smart.

Agreed. Saw that and thought they must be pleased.
