People continue to argue about what constitutes racism

25 April 2023 - 03:08 PM

dude i know this is message board but they didn't tolerate it. 
tolerating would be if he said something and they did nothing. 
They did something about it - they suspended him (without pay?) and added in a fine.  
You do not like and agree with what punishment they imposed but they did not tolerate.  
Maybe you think he should have been made to swim the Passaic?   

They did tolerate it.  In 6 games, he will be playing again. The punishment is a joke

He is still a racist playing for this club, representing the league and representing this region.

You know what league takes racism serious. The NBA. What happened when Meyers Leonard used anti semetic slurs? He was suspended for the season and then got cut.  That is the message that should be sent but MLS and Red Bull doesn't care. There actions shows tolerance.

Some think politicians care about taxes

Tbh, the only way change will happen is if the fans contact their local elected officials and call for change. The league is complicit.

The pressure point is tax benefits that nj gives to nyrb and red bull the company. Also, the tax benefits nycfc is getting to build a new stadium

Call on your electeds and say that there should be zero tolerance to racism.

Tax payer money should not be used to support racist institutions and nyrb should not be called ny or nj because they do not represent the state.

Mention how Vanzier continues to be employed as a nyrb/mls player after calling someone a monkey.

tax benefits to any MLS team, nyrb and red bull should be revoked if they continue to support and employ a racist.

Here is where you can find your elected officials:



The future of MLS

I never liked klinsman but he was right abt US Soccer. MLS and USL need to combine forces and create a true pyramid structure where teams can compete against each other.

MLS pro looks like a joke.

The goal is to develop youth players and retool outcasts

10 June 2022 - 09:34 AM

I think we just have to accept  who we are as a team. NYRB goal is to develop youth players and retool outcasts into successful players. The model will always keep us competitive. The better we get at it, the better talent pool we will be able to sign. The blueprint is Salzburg.

We are not LAFC, Seattle, Galaxy, Atlanta or Miami who are going to spend serious money to bring in talent.  If that was the case, I would be okay with loaning out sowe and LaCava. Our model is to develop talent, Sell and reinvest in the squad with better prospects. As the team talent level rises, it will make us a contender for a chip.

RB2 is filled with a lot of young guys. Some are not ready for the usl level. That is fine if they were used as subs but some are starting. we also stopped looking for reclamation projects like long. The guys we draft  dont stay on the team. And the rb2 coach seems to be lost. He lost me when he started pendant as an offensive midfielder. It was very osarioesk.

Lacava could be playing significant minutes with the first team while sowe could be leading the attack for rb2 if they stayed with the club.

Rb2 needs to play in games that matter. The standings should matter. The environment should matter.

The new head of sport should seriously look at this pipeline.
