And i'll still be able to pay $2.75 each way to Harrison. How much is it to Belmont via LIRR?

I find that the material for the move to Belmont is much more plentiful than the stuff we have mocking their "Westchester slums"

Marsch says Kljestan expected to play (so I guess he isn't at yellow card accumulation yet); Keita is training with team.

The identity of their entire (sad) fanbase is that their team plays in NYC.  Unless the MLS or the Yanks makes them leave Yankee Stadium for a real soccer venue, I can't see them moving until they find something in one of the boroughs.  I don't see Garber forcing the issue, but maybe the Yanks would at some point.
 
It would be fucking hilarious if it did happen.

The Yankees will want them to leave and leave soon. The team did what they wanted it to do. This is the history of the Yankees.

They started a television channel. All they had was the Yankees and Yankees replays. They tried to fill in airtime with some dopey shows like Center Stage and Steiner Sports. To fill in further, they purchased the Nets and Devils. The Nets immediately signed a deal with YES Network to fill in winter time. They ended up reviewing the contract that the Devils had and it didn't make sense. They also didn't have the spill over channel to show the games live in case the Devils and Nets were playing at the same time. The Devils had lower ratings and they did take in some money from MSG, so they stayed.

After locking in the Nets long term at a nice snazzy price, the Nets and Devils were sold off. The teams weren't purchased to make their brand stronger and better. They were purchased to help fill in their channel lineup on the cheap.

NYCFC is the same. They just finished building Yankee stadium. They want to gain income on a property they're paying on. Also, you can fill in some weekend daytime hours programming with live sports as opposed to replays of Arsenal or ManCity.

I think Yankees ownership and management were hoping for a maximum of 5 years of owning. They won't give a shit where the stadium is. The second a deal is struck on stadium grounds, The Yankees will sell off their share in the team. They'll retain television rights though...

Belmont is going to seem pretty convenient after their 9/23 game... which was moved to Hartford because of a Yankees make up!

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

The obvious solution would've been to hold it at MetLife but that would be beneath those pretentious fucks. I wonder what the Revs think as Hartford is technically their territory? And yes I know the answer is they don't care because the Krafts are dogshit.
Let's Go Buffalo!!!

As a Connecticut resident and kinda sorta UConn grad student I do not like this. Then again, I used to live in the Bronx (and loved it) so those fucks calling it home in the first place infuriates me.

 

But then again, I really hate northern Connecticut.

 

I hotly anticipate our banter on this matter.

 

That is all.

Everybody moves to the suburbs, or at least thinks about it, eventually.

 

But Hartford? Jesus...

This franchise in the three years since its been announced keeps fucking with the fan base and they just take it and try and make a positive spin about it. They lied about Lampard, they kept this secret, they are looking in Long Island for a stadium. What a fucked front office.

 

The best post i seen was someone asking why the Yankees can't just forfeit the game since they already play 162 games a year.
