I just don't understand why we, the true supporters of this team, give a shit how many bandwagon fans join us at the arena
One really good reason: the accountants run this club now, and so long as revenues stay flat or increase by low single digit percentages year-on-year, there won't be any players on the caliber of Henry or Cahill walking through the door.
If attendance stays where it's typically been, I hope you enjoy watching a mix of untested academy kids, USL all-stars, one or two former/borderline US int'ls, and rejects from the mothership for the forseeable future.
Side note: who are the worst-run MLS clubs in 2017? It's gotta be some combination of New England, Salt Lake, Columbus, Houston, the Scum, and Red Bull, right? Bad news: Scum are probably off the hook once their new stadium is built, Columbus is looking into building a new facility, and if Houston could get their act together on the field they have a nice stadium in a good location just waiting to be filled with fans.
Basically that leaves Red Bull to slug it out with the insufferable Krafts and the fat Mormon for the title of "least interested owners in MLS". Good company to be in!
