Imagine being as rich as these guys and choosing to live in Saudi Arabia not Miami just for some extra monopoly money. Oil money makes the football world go round.

Is every broadcast gonna sound like it's for the other team? How many more times are they gonna kiss the collective ass of the wonderwall?

#1425786 MLS TV moves to Apple

Posted by uptownbull on 05 March 2023 - 03:39 PM

Uh we're soccer fans in America, we're all the odd guys out. Increased access to and visibility of the game is something we should all be for. 


I have the app on Android TV device (Nvidia Shield baby, get one!), but Android OS is on 70% of smartphones worldwide, and sometimes people need to watch games on their phones. MLS should press the megacorp with the resources to make said app in .0025 seconds to just get it done. Make it MLS Season Pass only if they need to keep their precious iContent ecosystem from the unwashed hordes of Android users. 

#1425626 Stadium march in

Getting hyped for the game tomorrow! I want to try to catch the supporter's march-in to the stadium, will any groups be crossing the bridge from the Ironbound, and if so at about what time?

I'm trying to fill up my family plan with friends I've nudged into being casuals, but may have a slot to share with a fellow MFer next week.

I think I saw the same pale yellow, sans cheese mold / pee stains / protomolecule (for Expanse fans).

We remember that Wiki Carmona is actually an exciting player to have on the team.

The way they cut (sold, whatever he got cut!) Klimala gives me confidence that they're not fucking around and are probably working on a CB.

#1425187 2023 Schedule

After checking out a lot of the MLS content (free right now!) last night I was starting to see the vision of the apple deal - making fans of teams into fans of the league a la the NFL. Classic one step forward, a leaping flop backwards.


I swear this playoff format is "lets see how much interest in the league we can bleed off over the course of the playoffs." Fans are gonna feel fatigued and relieved when their teams are eliminated, not interested in watching more.

#1425184 2023 Schedule

Look at this convoluted fan-unfriendly nonsense. A best of three series has to be one of the stupidest fuckin Americanization-of-soccer moves I have ever heard of. These apple execs clearly dont know that elimination soccer can be kinda cautious and boring. This is THE reason to hate the deal.


Single elimination with a two-leg tie for conference championships is the way. Single elimination forces teams to get after it. Two leg ties are for strong, well-coached teams that will make it interesting. But "TV" money is the priority. Yet, who's gonna want to watch this bullshit but the people already committed to suffering with annoying ass MLS? I'm more likely to watch other teams' games if its single elimination - the ratings for game 2 of Dallas-SKC are gonna be amazing lol.

Oh but his other designs don't have the pee stains on them. This guy a secret NYC fan?!


Jokes and gripes aside, it prob looks great in person and I'll be looking for a bootleg with a cheaply applied, easily removed/replaced crest.

#1424810 *Sigh* Another preseason

Posted by uptownbull on 13 February 2023 - 10:25 AM

So what's the 4-2-2-2 depth chart? This is looking prettyyyy prettyyy prettyyy good. Winning the Open Cup should be the bare minimum. If they can hold this team together / upgrade it over the next 2/3 seasons they should win something bigger.
