In Topic: If Red Bull had to do it over

09 October 2019 - 09:05 PM

Considering their other teams are in Liepzig and Salzburg, I am not sure Miami is too on brand. 

I guess when I think of a place where I was going to drink a gallon of Red Bull & vodka and go crazy, my mind thinks of South Beach first, not necessarily North Jersey. 

 

Worth noting that they only ended up in Leipzig after trying and failing to buy a number of clubs, including (hysterically) St. Pauli, Fortuna Düsseldorf, and 1860 Munich. And—credit where credit it's due—unlike what they did here and in Salzburg, Red Bull re-formed the lower division club they bought out—SSV Markranstädt—one division below them. And they still exist to this day. This made the NYCFC tifo with the tombstones of all the clubs Red Bull kills doubly dumb: A) they thought they bought and re-branded Lokomotive Leipzig, which—as a bunch of Nazi motherfuckers, they ought to know is still very much active, and B): Markranstädt never actually died!

If RB had to do it over again, I wish they would have fucked off and went and bought the fucking Earthquakes or the Revs..

I've thought about this for years, and I actually think buying in Miami would have made more sense for their brand. Had they gotten into soccer around the time the Fusion folded, Red Bull Miami might be lifting their fourth MLS Cup this fall. 


In Topic: Stadium updates

The grass behind the goal near the South Ward always dies by the end of the season. It's not a great look. To replace it with turf is just fine for me. Focus their energy on the playing field. Who cares about the sides. By mid-summer the color of the grass will be rich and full, matching the color of the turf and nobody will notice.

His contract expires in like 3 months. Even by the most cynical standards, he has every reason to care. Aren't you the same dude who talked shit to Ali Curtis in front of his kid? 

Nope, that was me. Years later, I only partially regret it.
