For people who are members I would encourage you to write your ticket rep about this. I'm going to wait and see what this actually means once I've been to a game, but certainly seems strange on the surface.

I meant that if they switch to a DJ style announcer, or in-game annoying host, not specifically Bob, as great as he is at his job. I see them pushing the Labelle as the MC thing and cut aways on the screen to fans on every dead ball things hard. These things do not make a good in-stadium experience in soccer.


You mean Labelle talking during on dead balls? I don't see that happening. They had a few different hosts and there was a DJ for a bunch of games anyway.

I just don't see it being that big of a deal.

The overwhelming majority of people have stopped going altogether.  Which is why they're tarping seats like they're back in Giants Stadium.


Did I say attendance was good? Besides some on the forum do you really believe that many people care about who the PA announcer is?

Like NittanyMetros said, attendance was way down last year and will probably get even worse in 2020.  As a result, they may likely need to cut the budget on gamely costs.  How many concession workers would equal what Bob was getting per game?  It sucks, because I think a good PA guy, like a solid organ player at a hockey game, can make a difference to the match experience.

write your ticket rep about this.


Has that ever worked before?
Was a script provided at the sales meeting today?

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

You could just improve the marketing and on-field performance if you want to address the declining revenue. That's one thought.

 

Instead you got Armas saying it's a "process" only a month after saying we could win MLS Cup.
