Attendance again

We're a water stop on the  highway to the big leagues. Others will want to travel the same road. Not conducive to team continuity, but it is what it is. No sense having an academy if we do not offer openings on an on-going basis. Do I like this set up? Not really. But what's the choice? NYRB has to make money somehow.

This is no knock on BWP, but if your goal is to make money then the TH14's of this world are needed along with the talented, but relatively unknown players we get. We have the steak, but we need the sizzle to go with it. We love BWP but he is not putting butts in the empty seats.

 

I accept that we are a feeder club to Europe, but it would be nice for us fans to get a little more reward than we do. I have never seen these boards in almost universal agreement about what is needed to put us on top (and it ain't even that much), yet while it seems so simple and obvious it seems elusive to those charged with building the team. I don't actually believe that they are blind, but rather that their boss in Austria  is still holding the spending reins too tight.


Some of our players are not great at everything

Taxi doesn't have much of a right foot, but everything else? He's pretty much there. 

Neither does Royer. 


How sweet it is....

To have a player like Alex Song train with us and to not go apesh..t because we are so desperate.

How things have changed. I am so thankful.

Attendance, again

I did not agree with his decision not to accompany the team to Chicago, but his disdain for the USOC is matched by the majority of our fan base, then and now.

Let's be honest, with a metropolitan area our size and only a 25,000 seat stadium it is sad that we don't get at least 20,000 to a game no matter who, when and what we are playing for.
